The major tasks undertaken were (1) analytical and laboratory experiments on the propagation of sound from sources near a flat surface of finite acoustic impedance; (2) laboratory experiments dealing with the reflection of sound from finite sized plane patches; and (3) the diffraction of sound by wedge-and trapezoidal-shape barriers. In addition, a series of measurements were made of the background noise levels for various jet flow conditions in the Anechoic Noise Facility of the Langley Research Center's Acoustic and Noise Reduction Laboratory.
