On judging the noise from aircraft in flight
Sixty subjects made judgements of the sounds of aircraft flying overhead, on three occasions. Two rating scales were used for outdoor judgements using criteria of “noisiness” and “intrusiveness”. The second criterion was also used for indoor tests. Noise levels were expressed in dB (A) and PNdB. The level just regarded as “noisy” outdoors was 93 dB (A). Comparison of the indoor and outdoor tests showed that subjects made roughly the same judgement on a given aircraft although the sound level indoors was reduced by the building structure. Psychological scales derived from the results suggest that “noisiness” and “intrusiveness”, like “loudness”, follow a power law of the intensity.
