PSYCHOPHYSICAL TESTS OF POTENTIAL DESIGN/CERTIFICATION CRITERIA FOR ADVANCED SUPERSONIC AIRCRAFT

A subjective valuation of simulated sonic booms heard indoors and outdoors has been carried out to assess the validity of a simple formulation for estimating perceived noise levels. Using a psychoacoustic experiment design based on magnitude estimation of the perceived level, it was shown that the subjective response was consistent with the predictions of both the simple formula for PLdB as well as PLdB determined from an analysis of the sonic boom stimuli using the MARK 7 procedure.
