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 and blast noise in the atmosphere. Volume I of this report develops and explains the relations among the various data bases which have been developed to predict blast noise impact of Army facilities. From these studies, data bases and computational procedures which are used within the Blast Noise Prediction computer program BNOISE 3.2 are developed.
