Abstract:

A study to evaluate the environmental impact of the noise produced by a proposed high Reynolds number tunnel HIRT under consideration at the Arnold Engineering Development Center AEDC has been conducted. The studies include theoretical analyses of the noise generation mechanisms associated with the operation of the facility, and scale-model experiments to provide base-line data for extrapolation to full-scale conditions. This assessment contains all pertinent data of relevance to the noise impact which may be anticipated during HIRT operation and includes a specification of acceptable noise limits for people, animals and buildings which will be exposed to HIRT noise, and special considerations for noise protection and control.
