Modeling Engine Roughness 2009-01-2153

Clearly, sound quality evaluation has become a central focus for assuring customer satisfaction. To achieve an optimized product sound at an early stage of development, subjective evaluation methods must be combined with analysis and prediction tools to provide reliable information relevant to product quality judgments. Some years ago, a “Hearing Model” was developed explaining and describing many psychoacoustic effects [1], [2], and allowing for roughness calculation in accordance with subjective listening tests [3]. Existing roughness models work well for synthetic signals such as modulated tones or noise signals, but it is challenging to predict roughness for engine sounds because of their more complex spectral and temporal noise patterns [4].
