Determining Hearing Threshold of Interior Noise Using Adaptive Procedure 2001-01-1574

A jury evaluation study has been conducted to determine the hearing threshold of IP gauge stepping motor noise using a transformed up-down procedure. The stepping motor noise was recorded in an anechoic chamber and was used as a signal in the study. To determine the masked threshold, this signal was adjusted to various gain levels and mixed with interior engine noise at selected rpm as masking noise. In this study, the Adaptive Procedure was used, and a software application was developed for this purpose. Twenty subjects, selected based on hearing test results, participated in this jury evaluation. The findings of this study indicated that Adaptive Procedure is an effective approach in determining hearing threshold for automotive applications. A design criterion for acoustical characteristics of the IP gauge DC motor noise has been developed based on the results of this study.
