This report is one of a series describing the research program undertaken by the Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory to develop procedures for predicting community noise exposure resulting from aircraft operations. This report outlines the acoustic measurement test conditions, the acoustic data reduction and interpretation procedures, and the type of aircraft performance information needed to obtain a noise data file for predicting the noise produced by aircraft operations. The procedures result in the descriptions of the noise of an aircraft in terms of the effective perceived noise level, the sound exposure level and several other noise measures. Level flight measurements and static engine noise tests are described, and are applicable to conventional fixed wing aircraft and helicopters.
