Abstract:

Over the past several years, the Construction Engineering Research Laboratory has gathered data from various sources dealing with blast noise generation and propagation and has performed several sets of field measurements designed to enhance this data base. These studies have been performed as a part of efforts aimed at improving methods of predicting the noise impact of military installations. Specifically included are measurements of the directivity pattern of major Army weapons and the statistical propagation of blast noise in the atmosphere. User instructions and a system description for Blast Noise Prediction computer program, BNOISE 3.2 are given in Volume II. Also included is the procedure for using the program to obtain a noise contour for a specific set of data how subroutines are invoked in a modular fashion a description of module functions module calling procedure algorithms used by the program and a summary of error messages.
