For the purposes of this document, the following definitions apply.
3.1 Motor vehicle’s category
In terms of noise outside the motor vehicle, a category of motor vehicle refers
to a category of motor vehicles that have no difference in the following main
3.1.1 Body shape or structural material (especially the engine compartment and
its sound insulation material).
3.1.2 Length and width of motor vehicle.
3.1.3 Engine type (ignition or compression ignition, two-stroke or four-stroke,

between 3.1.2 and 3.1.4 does not result in a change in the noise measurement
method (such as gear selection), the engine of the same type and (or) when
the total transmission ratio is different, it can be regarded as the same category.
3.2 Noise reduction system
Noise reduction system refers to the complete set of components necessary to
limit the motor vehicle and its exhaust noise. When the noise reduction
component’s designations or trademarks in the system are different, or the size

(see Figure 1) are. when placing a non-directional small sound source at the
center of the site (point O), the sound level deviation in all directions on the
hemisphere does not exceed ±1dB. If the following conditions are met, the

NA. Steady rotating speed of the engine when approaching Line AA’.
A.3.2.1 Manual transmission
A. Gear selection

forward gears, apply the second gear for measurement;
b) For M1 and N1 vehicles, when using a transmission with more than four
forward gears, measurements shall be made in the second and third gears
If the engine speed exceeds S when passing Line BB' when measuring
with the second gear, the NA shall be reduced by 5%S successively until
the engine speed exceeds S through Line BB'. If the NA drops to idle speed
and the speed through Line BB' still exceeds S, then only the third gear is
However, for M1 vehicles with more than four forward gears and engines
with a rated power greater than 140kW and a rated power/maximum mass
ratio greater than 75 kW/t, if the vehicle uses the third gear, its tail end

be used for measurement.
c) For vehicles other than M1 and N1, vehicles with a total number of forward
gears X (including speed ratios obtained by the auxiliary or multi-speed
ratio drive axle) shall be measured separately for each gear equal to or
greater than X/n. For vehicles with an engine rated power not greater than
225 kW, take n=2. For vehicles with a rated power greater than 225 kW,
take n=3. If X/n is not an integer, the gear corresponding to the higher
integer shall be selected. The upshift measurement is started from the X/n
gear until the engine speed is first lower than the rated speed when the
tail passes Line BB' at the end of the gear.
NOTE. If the main transmission has eight speed ratios and the auxiliary transmission has two
speed ratios, the drive train has 16 gear positions. If the rated power of the engine is 230 kW,
then . Then the gear that starts to measure is the sixth gear (that
is, the sixth gear of the 16 gears obtained by the main and auxiliary transmission combination),
the next measurement gear is the seventh gear, and so on.
A. Determination of approach speed
30, 40, 50 km/h (if the maximum speed of the lane is less than 50 km/h, the

speed specified above, and its speed change shall be controlled within ±1 km/h.
If the engine speed is controlled, the speed change shall be controlled within
±2% or ±50 r/min (whichever is greater).
A.3.3.2 When the front end of the vehicle reaches Line AA', the accelerator
pedal must be stepped as quickly as possible (i.e., the throttle or accelerator is
fully open) and remain unchanged until the rear end of the vehicle passes Line
BB' and then the pedal is released as quickly as possible (that is, the throttle or
accelerator is closed).
A.3.3.3 The vehicle shall accelerate in a straight line through the measuring
area, and its longitudinal center plane shall be as close as possible to the center
Line CC'.
A.3.3.4 If the vehicle is composed of a tractor and a trailer that is not easily

Annex AA
Requirements for noise measurement test road
AA1 Introduction
This Annex, based on the main content of ISO 10844.1994 “Acoustics --
Specification of test tracks for the purpose of measuring noise emitted by road
vehicles”, specifies technical requirements for test road construction and
physical properties to be achieved and their measurement methods.
AA2 Terms
This Annex adopts the following terms.
AA2.1 Void ratio
Void ratio refers to the percentage of pore volume between aggregates in road
concrete to the total volume of concrete, expressed as Ve. These pores are
either interconnected (closed pores) or open to the surrounding atmosphere
(open pores). The void ratio of the test road is determined by the following
formula based on the obtained core sample.
ρA - Apparent density of core sample;
ρR - Maximum theoretical density of core sample.
The apparent density ρA is determined by the following formula.
ρA = m/V
m - Mass of the core sample obtained by test road;
V - Volume of this core sample, excluding air volume of the opening gap of the
road surface.
The density is determined according to the mass and volume of the binder
contained in each core sample, the mass and volume of the aggregate, given
If the road surface does not meet the void ratio requirements, its sound
absorption coefficient must meet. α≤0.10. See AA3.5.2 for its measurement
NOTE. Although road builders are more familiar with void ratio, the most relevant characteristic
is the sound absorption coefficient. However, the sound absorption coefficient is measured only
when the void ratio cannot meet the requirements. Because the measurement and correlation
of void ratio have large uncertainties, it is possible to erroneously negate certain roads based
solely on the measurement of void ratio.
AA3.3 Road surface construction depth
The average road surface construction depth measured by volume method
shall meet. MTD≥0.4mm, the measurement method can be found in AA3.5.3.
AA3.4 Road uniformity
It is necessary to ensure that the road surface depth and void ratio of the road
surface in the test area are as uniform as possible.
NOTE. It shall be noted that if the rolling effect is different in some areas, the
road surface construction shall be different and shall be uneven.
AA3.5 Inspection cycle
In order to check whether the road has consistently met the requirements of the
road surface construction depth, void ratio or sound absorption coefficient
specified in this Annex, periodic road inspection shall be carried out at the
following intervals.
a) For void ratio or sound absorption coefficient
When the road is newly paved, check once. If the new road meets the
requirements, there is no need to perform periodic inspections. If the new
road surface does not meet the requirements, it can be checked after a
period of time, because the road space shall be blocked and become
dense over time.
b) For road surface construction depth
When the road is newly paved, check once. When starting the noise test
(NOTE. it shall be done 4 weeks after paving). Check once a year after
AA4 Design of test road
AA4.1 Area
Compaction, relative to Marshall
compaction 98%
g) The appropriate mix temperature shall be selected prior to rolling so that
the next void can be achieved to achieve the desired void ratio. In order
to improve the possibility of meeting the technical requirements of AA3.1
to AA3.4, the degree of compaction shall be studied. Not only to study the
right mix temperature, but also to study the appropriate number of passes
and to choose the right rolling machine.
AA5 Measurement methods
AA5.1 Measurement of void ratio
In order to perform this measurement, it is necessary to obtain the paved core
at least 4 locations in the test area between Line AA' line and Line BB' line (see
Figure AA1). In order to avoid causing unevenness or unevenness on the rim,
the core sample shall be taken from the vicinity of the rim and shall not be taken
on it. At least two core samples shall be taken near the rim. One core shall be
taken between the rim and the two microphones.
If the conditions for the homogeneity are not met (see AA3.4), they shall be
taken elsewhere in the test area.
The void ratio of each core sample shall be determined. Then calculate the
average of all core samples. Compare with the requirements of A.3.1. In
addition, there must no core sample with a void ratio greater than 10%. It is
necessary to remind the paver of the test road that problems may arise due to
sampling in the test area where the pipeline or wire is heated. Installation of
these devices must be carefully designed to avoid future sampling locations. It
is recommended to leave some areas of approximately 200 × 300mm without
tubes or wires, or to make them deeper so that they shall not be damaged when
sampling from the road.
AA5.2 Measurement of sound absorption coefficient
Sound absorption coefficient (normal incidence) is measured by impedance
tube, the method is in accordance with ISO 10534-1.
The requirements for sampling are the same as for the measurement of void
ratio (see AA5.1). The sound absorption coefficient is measured in the
frequency range of 400 to 800 Hz and 800 to 1600 Hz (at least at the center
frequency of the octave). The maximum of these two frequency ranges shall be
measured. Then, calculate the average the measurements of all core samples,
