This document describes a practical system for a user to determine observer-to-aircraft distances. These observer-to-aircraft distances can be either closest point of approach (CPA) distances during field measurements or overhead distances during acoustic certification tests. The system uses a digital camera to record an image of the subject aircraft. A method of using commercial software to obtain the distance from such an image is presented. Potential issues which may affect accuracy are discussed.

ARP1307
Test procedures are described for measuring noise at specific locations (passenger and cargo doors, and servicing positions) and for conducting general noise surveys around aircraft. Requirements are identified with respect to instrumentation; acoustic and atmospheric environment; data acquisition, reduction and presentation, and such other information as is needed for reporting the results. Recommended procedures involve recording data on magnetic tape for subsequent processing. The use of tape-recorder/time-integrating analyzer systems avoids the need to average by eye the variations associated with manual readings from sound level meters and octave band analyzers and therefore yields more accurate results. This document makes no provision for predicting APU noise from basic engine characteristics, nor for measuring noise of more than one aircraft operating at the same time.

Test procedures are described for measuring noise at specific receiver locations (passenger and cargo doors, and servicing positions) and for conducting general noise surveys around aircraft. Procedures are also described for measuring noise level and directivity at noise source locations to facilitate the understanding and interpretation of the data. Requirements are identified with respect to instrumentation; acoustic and atmospheric environment; data acquisition, reduction and presentation, and such other information as is needed for reporting the results. This document makes no provision for predicting APU or component noise from basic engine characteristics or design parameters, nor for measuring noise of more than one aircraft operating at the same time. No attempt is made to suggest acceptable levels of noise or suitable subjective criteria for judging acceptability. ICAO Annex 16 Volume I Attachment C provides guidance on recommended maximum noise levels.

ARP1323
Recommendations of this Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) are not intended to satisfy the more detailed and stringent requirements of aircraft design development. Also, they may not be directly applicable to general or private aviation aircraft where special restraints on measurement locations and procedures may exist. However, many of the principles and standards discussed may apply to these aircraft. The recommended procedure for sound pressure level measurements in aircraft involves the recording of data on magnetic tape for subsequent processing and analysis after the flight. Sound level meter/octave-band analyzer measurements, because of inherent inaccuracies associated with manual data readings, are not as precise as those obtained from a tape-recorder/time integrating analyzer system and are, therefore, precluded from this recommended practice.

ARP5534
This document presents a practical method for calculating atmospheric absorption for wide-band sounds analyzed with one-third octave-band filters, called the SAE Method. The SAE Method utilizes pure-tone attenuation algorithms originally published in ISO 9613-1 and ANSI S1.26-1995 to calculate path-length attenuation at mid-band frequencies. The equations introduced in this standard transform the pure-tone, mid-band attenuation to one-third octave-band attenuation. The purpose of this guidance document is to extend the useful attenuation range of the Approximate Method outlined in ANSI S1.26-1995, and to replace ARP866A. Calculation of sound attenuation caused by mechanisms other than atmospheric absorption such as divergence, refraction, scattering due to turbulence, ground reflections, or non-linear propagation effects, is outside the scope of this document.

ARP4055
The scope of this ARP embraces the description of a configuration for a ground-plane microphone installation that may be used to determine sound pressure levels equivalent to those which would have been measured in an acoustic freefield at the microphone location. The one-third - octave-band center-frequency range over which equivalent freefield sound pressure levels may be obtained is from as low as 50 Hz to at least as high as 10,000 Hz. The specific application of the measurement technique described in this ARP is the determination of the equivalent freefield sound pressure levels of the noise produced by propeller-driven light aircraft, in flight, for sound incidence angles within 30 degrees of the normal to the ground. For larger angles to the normal, additional adjustments may be necessary which are outside the scope of this ARP.

This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) defines quantities that may be used to describe various attributes of the sound field in the interior of aircraft. For a particular aircraft, or for a specific situation in a particular aircraft, it may not be necessary to utilize all the quantities included here to provide an adequate description of an aircraft's interior acoustical environment.

Recommendations presented in this document are intended primarily for the acquisition of far-field noise data. The test engine is to be appropriately configured and operated so that the sound pressure levels obtained are consistent with the specific objectives of the test. The principal output of the data reduction system is one-third octave band sound pressure levels. However, when appropriate, data may be recorded for purposes of broader or narrower bandwidth analysis.

The test engine is to be appropriately configured and operated so that the acoustical signals generated are consistent with the specific objectives of the test. The principal output of the data reduction system is one-third octave band sound pressure levels. However, broader or narrower bandwidth analysis of the recorded data may also be accomplished when appropriate. Although not specifically intended to apply to special purpose engine noise testing (for example, tests involving unique instrumentation or procedures to identify specific noise sources), some of the practices described herein may be appropriate for such testing. Specification of reference conditions is outside the scope of this document although procedures to adjust data to a reference condition are described in 7.2.4.

Satisfactory measurements of noise in personnel-occupied rotorcraft cabins may require test techniques different from those prescribed for other types of aircraft (ARP1323) because rotorcraft operate under significantly different flight conditions. Recommendations of this ARP apply to the recording of acoustical data on magnetic tape and the subsequent processing and analysis of the recorded data.

This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides information and methods for using aircraft position data to estimate aircraft thrust. The thrust estimated using this AIR is intended to be used to estimate aircraft noise level and aircraft air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. The method of estimating aircraft noise level using aircraft thrust is provided in AIR 1845. Aircraft noise and emissions are generally estimated using models that are based on standard sets of aircraft profiles that include aircraft thrust, speed, and altitude along the flight path. Potential uses of this AIR are to provide an experimental method of determining the adequacy of a standard profile or to develop a flight specific profile. Flight specific profiles may be used to develop or revise standard profiles or to model noise or emissions on a flight-by-flight basis.
