Abstract

A survey and auditory experiments on multiple residential noises such as floor impact, air-borne, bathroom, drainage and traffic noises were conducted to develop a combined rating system and to establish criteria for multiple residential noises. Subjective reactions to each residential noise such as annoyance, activity disturbance, sleep disturbance, noise sensitivity and satisfaction for individual noise, and the effect of individual noise perception on the evaluation of overall noise environment were investigated from the survey. Auditory experiments were undertaken to determine the percent satisfaction for individual noise levels. From the results of the survey and the auditory experiments, equation for prediction of overall satisfaction with multiple noises was developed and class for multiple residential noises was suggested.
