Abstract:

NOISEMAP is a computer program used for generating Noise Exposure Contours in various metrics including DNL, NEF, CNEL, and WECPNL around US military bases. This program uses state-of-the-art modeling techniques developed by the Harry G. Armstrong Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory AAMRL to provide accurate information about noise exposure to local communities for zoning against encroachment. This model is also used by the civilian community to model noise exposure around civil and general aviation airports. Noise and performance datafiles for both US military and civil aircraft are included with the program. AAMRL recently upgraded this mainframe computer model to operate on a desktop microcomputer, resulting in tremendous time and money savings for completing any airbase noise analysis. Two additional programs, BASEOPS and NMPLOT, were created for use with this microcomputer version on NOISEMAP. BASEOPS is a computerized operations input program for creating specific cases. NMPLOT is a versatile microcomputer contouring program that takes the output of NOISEMAP and creates the resulting noise contours to the screen, to the file, or to a plotter.
