Abstract:

This report presents the results of field measurements of the far-field noise produced on the ground by military aircraft operating inside Grade-II demountable suppressors during ground runup operations. For these 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. Volume 1 discusses the scope, limitations, and definitions needed to understand and use the volumes containing the noise data. Noise data are presented in this Volume 7 for the following aircraft suppressor systems A-7 in the AF32A-19 and AF-32A-24 noise suppressors, KC-135A in the modified AF32A-52 noise suppressor, F-4 in the AF32A-14 noise suppressor, F-5 in the AF32A-18 noise suppressor, F-15 in the AF32A-23 nose suppressor, F-16 in the AF32A noise suppressor, F-100 in the AF32A-16 noise suppressor, F-106 in the AF32A-17 noise suppressor, F-111 in the AF32A-13 noise suppressor and T-38 in the AF32A-18 noise suppressor.
