VALIDATION OF AIRCRAFT NOISE EXPOSURE PREDICTION PROCEDURE

The NOISEMAP predictive procedure is used to describe the noise environment around airbases and thereby aid airbase planners to prevent community encroachment limiting the effectiveness of the installation. This report delineates the results of measurements made over one to three week periods at four Air Force airbases to acquire the data needed to validate and/or modify the noise predictive algorithms in NOISEMAP for takeoff, landing, traffic pattern, and ground runup operations. In general, the algorithms currently used in NOISEMAP provided predictions that agreed well with measured data. It was found the obtaining accurate data on aircraft operational procedures (engine power settings, airspeeds, and flight paths) was essential.
