NOISE BURDEN FACTOR--NEW WAY OF RATING AIRPORT NOISE

The relative benefits and disadvantages which an airport offers to its neighboring community can be evaluated with the aid of a criterion termed the noise burden factor. This measure represents the days of serious noise nuisance to one house dweller for each passenger or freight unit arriving at or leaving the airport. The noise burden factor is shown to provide a concurrent means for comparing noise problems at different airports and for monitoring the effectiveness of noise control measures over a period of time.
