Abstract This study was undertaken in order to evaluate the environmental corrections necessary when performing emission sound pressure measurements with directionally-emitting sources. A stationary van with the engine turned off but equipped with an additional sound source was used to simulate a noise-emitting machine. Different adjustments of the roof and windows were used to obtain variable directionality and evaluate angle bias. The findings are to form the basis for proposed modifications of existing emission sound pressure measurement standards and for recommendations for users of the standards.
