EFFECTS OF NOISE ON COMMERCIAL V/STOL AIRCRAFT DESIGN AND OPERATION

This paper is based on a study performed under a NASA Contract (1) in which the acoustical signatures of several classes of large V/STOL aircraft were predicted, synthesized electronically, and evaluated for annoyance. Perceived Noise Levels were established in a manner similar to that which has been employed for jet airplanes. The paper describes the methods of simulation and testing and discusses the results in terms of criteria for successful commercial operations and the noise reduction research which will be required to attain this goal.
