Abstract:

This report is one of a series describing the research program undertaken by the Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory to develop the procedures NOISEMAP and data base NOISEFILE for predicting community noise exposure resulting from military aircraft operations. It presents the results of field test measurements to define the single event noise produced on the ground by military fixed wing aircraft during controlled level flyovers and ground runups. For flight conditions, data are presented in terms of various acoustic measures over the range 200-25,000 feet minimum slant distance to the aircraft. For ground runups, data are presented as a function of angle and distance to the aircraft. All of the data are normalized to standard acoustic reference conditions of 59 F temperature and 70 relative humidity. This particular volume Vol. 1 discusses the scope, limitations, and definitions needed to understand and use the subsequent volumes containing the noisefile data for military aircraft.
