Study of Vehicle Interior Annoyance Based on Different Exhaust Configurations


Article Preview

Five different exhaust configurations were installed on the vehicle respectively and binaural sound signals at rear left passenger under ten operating conditions were recorded as subjective evaluation samples. Paired comparison method was introduced to subjectively evaluate the annoyance of these sound signals. Evaluation data was studied using Ranking-based and Bradley-Terry model fitting approach respectively and the correlation analysis showed excellent consistency between them. Accordingly interior subjective annoyance of different exhaust configurations was obtained and the best one was identified.
