A Laboratory Study on Total Noise Annoyance Due To Combined Industrial Noises
In this study, broadband noises are combined on the one hand with low-frequency content noises and on the other hand with 100 Hz-main-component noises. The total noise annoyance due to the 2 types of combinations is assessed through two laboratory experiments. Six classical models of total annoyance due to combined noises are tested and discussed. The strongest component model appears to be a weak total annoyance predictor for the studied combined noises. One reason may be that it fails to take into account the asymmetries between the annoyance-inhibiting properties between the combined noises. Overall classical models of total annoyance, the weighted-summation model yields the best prediction. By integrating the features of two classical models into a new mixed model, total annoyance prediction is more improved.
