Abstract:
The paper looks for the degree of linear correlation of some acoustic parameters when their results are compared taking into consideration the internal noise of a set of passengers cars and another set of commercial vehicles. The acoustic parameters dealing with the overall noise (Loudness, dB(A) and dB(B)) and those related to the high frequency portion of the spectrum (Articulation Index and Sharpness) are chosen. The sound pressure levels in the passenger compartment are measured according to ISO 5128. The parameters are calculated in some specific velocities. A least square fit to a straight line to each pair of the acoustic parameters is applied. The results are discussed taking into consideration the degree of correlation trying to investigate how dependent or independent the parameters are. In addition it is possible to see the fluctuation range of these parameters concerning each set of vehicles.
