Abstract:

An acoustical assessment was performed on the Combat Arms Firing Range at Schriever AFB in April 2014. It was determined that the noise in the firing range did not meet the definition of impulse noise in accordance with AFOSH Standard 48-20, due to acoustical reflections. Therefore, it was recommended that acoustical absorption be added to these side walls to reduce the reverberant field.
