PRELIMINARY EVALUATION OF THE EFFECT OF A DYNAMIC PREFERENTIAL RUNWAY SYSTEM UPON COMMUNITY NOISE DISTURBANCE

A DYNAMIC PREFERENTIAL RUNWAY SYSTEM (DPRS) WAS DEVELOPED FOR JOHN F. KENNEDY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FOR THE PURPOSE OF CONTROLLING SHORT TERM NOISE EXPOSURE IN THE NEIGHBORING COMMUNITIES. THE DPRS IS A COMPUTER-AIDED PROCEDURE FOR OPTIMUM SELECTION OF RUNWAYS FROM THE STANDPOINT OF NOISE AND IS BASED UPON A COMMUNITY DISTURBANCE MODEL WHICH TAKES INTO ACCOUNT FLYOVER LEVELS, SIZE OF EXPOSED POPULATIONS, TIME OF DAY AND WEEK, AND PERSISTENCE OF OVERFLIGHTS. A PRELIMINARY EVALUATION OF THE DPRS IS PRESENTED ON THE BASIS OF SOCIAL SURVEY DATA AND TELEPHONE COMPLAINT RECORDS, FOR THE TRIAL PERIOD OF AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER 1971. COMPARATIVE USE IS MADE OF DATA TAKEN IN A PREVIOUS SURVEY OF THE SAME COMMUNITY AREAS IN 1969. /AUTHOR/
