Re: Road Noise (fwd)
I'm sending this message again because I think it didn't reach the list.

I'm sorry that I haven't got the reference with me right now, but I think
it is not exponential but a fairly high power, I guess sound pressure
increases as the fifth or sixth power of speed. This means that doubling
the speed implies 32-fold or 64-fold increase in pressure, or 30 to 36 dB
in sound presure level.
> small reductions in speed can result in larger reductions in noise.
This remains true because of the large exponent.
