A RESEARCH PROGRAM TO REDUCE INTERIOR NOISE IN GENERAL AVIATION AIRPLANES. DESIGN OF AN ACOUSTIC PANEL TEST FACILITY

The design, construction, and costs of a test facility for determining the sound transmission loss characteristics of various panels and panel treatments are described. The pressurization system and electronic equipment used in experimental testing are discussed as well as the reliability of the facility and the data gathered. Tests results are compared to pertinent acoustical theories for panel behavior and minor anomalies in the data are examined. A method for predicting panel behavior in the stiffness region is also presented.
