Abstract:

The USAF F-15A aircraft is an air superiority fighter powered by two F100-PW-1001 turbofan engines and with an on-board jet engine jet fuel starter, JFS used to start the turbofan engine. The report provides measured and extrapolated data defining the bioacoustic environments produced by this aircraft operating on a concrete runup pad for seven engineJFS power configurations. Near-field data are reported for 10 locations in a wide variety of physical and psychoacoustic measures overall and band sound pressure levels, C-weighted and A-weighted sound levels, preferred speech interference level, perceived noise level, and limiting times for total daily exposure of personnel with and without standard Air Force ear protectors. Far-field data measured at 19 locations are normalized to standard meteorological conditions and extrapolated from 75-8000 meters to derive sets of equal-value contours for these same seven acoustic measures as functions of angle and distance from the source. Refer to Volume 1 of this handbook, USAF Bioenvironmental Noise Data Handbook, Vol 1 Organization, Content and Application, AMRL-TR-75-501 1975, for discussion of the Objective and design of the handbook, the types of data presented, measurement procedures, instrumentation, data processing, definitions of quantities, symbols, equations, applications, limitations, etc.
