AIRCRAFT SONIC BOOM: BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS. JANUARY 1970-JANUARY 1990 (A BIBLIOGRAPHY FROM THE NTIS DATABASE)
This bibliography contains citations concerning the effects of sonic booms on humans, animals, birds, and fish. The citations cover biophysics, psychoacoustics, stress, and auditory tolerances. Compression wave analysis and engine and airframe design are included when related to noise reduction. Some references are made to aircraft maneuvers, which can result in less noise pollution in the ground track. Sonic boom propagation and effects on buildings and structures are cited in separate published search. (This updated bibliography contains 104 citations, 13 of which are new entries to the previous edition.)
