Abstract:

This report deals with the sound intensity of a blast wave and its noise level based on the threshold of human hearing. Since the sound level depends on ambient conditions, the effect of altitude was considered by determining the relative change between sea level and 5000 ft. Expressions for sound level as a function of overpressure are presented. Author
