COMPARISON OF GROUND-RUNUP AND FLYOVER NOISE LEVELS

2002-12-16
CURRENT
AIR1216
Because of the special circumstances under which these tests were conducted, it is necessary to carefully define the limitations on the validity of the results. The measurements and the comparisons reported here apply only to the specific locations of the noise sources and microphones and only for the specific weather and ground-surface conditions existing at the time of the tests. It cannot be assumed that these conditions are representative of most field measurements of aircraft exterior noise.

Method for Predicting Lateral Attenuation of Airplane Noise

2006-04-20
CURRENT
AIR5662
This document describes analytical methods for calculating the attenuation of the level of the sound propagating from an airplane to locations on the ground and to the side of the flight path of an airplane during ground roll, climbout after liftoff, and landing operations. Both level and non-level ground scenarios may be modeled using these methods, however application is only directly applicable to terrain without significant undulations, which may cause multiple reflections and/or multiple shielding effects. This attenuation is termed lateral attenuation and is in excess of the attenuation from wave divergence and atmospheric absorption.

Ground-Plane Microphone Configuration for Propeller-Driven Light-Aircraft Noise Measurement

1988-01-01
CURRENT
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.

Monitoring Aircraft Noise and Operations in the Vicinity of Airports: System Description, Acquisition, and Operation

2006-08-28
CURRENT
ARP4721/1
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides engineering methods that can be applied to monitoring aircraft noise and operations in the vicinity of airports using either attended or unattended monitoring systems, as well as methods for validation of measurement results from permanent systems. Part 1 provides guidance on the components, installation and administration of permanent systems and guidance on analysis of data collected from temporary monitoring of aircraft noise. A separate document, Part 2, describes both system screening tests and detailed test methods for validating the data reported by permanently installed systems. This document is intended as a guide toward standard practice and is subject to change with experience and technical advances. Potential users include: airport proprietors, airport neighbors, federal, state and local government agencies, equipment vendors and other public bodies and officials.
