Jury Reactions to Truck Tire Noise - An SAE Study 720929

The A-weighted sound level accounts for the bulk (but not all) of the jury's reaction to the sound of trucks coasting on a variety of tires. A component of the jury's reaction is related by the study to the manner in which the sound decays after the vehicle passes the point of observation. This component also appears to depend strongly on the characteristics of the sound.
The jury's reaction shows two forms of distortion: end-of-scale compression and temporal drift. The analysis attempts to account for these factors and to see beyond them into the jury's basis for reacting.
