Abstract

Current aircraft noise mapping guidelines are based primarily on outdoor sound levels. However, human perception is highly related to indoor response, particularly for residences. A research project is being conducted that provides insight into how typical residential dwelling envelopes affect indoor sound levels. A focus is being placed on non- sonic boom aircraft noise, using continuous noise signatures of commercial aircraft overflights. Typical construction types around U.S. airports have been identified and used to develop model predictions of outdoor-to-indoor transmission loss. Further, the impact of systematically altering construction variables such as construction material and window- to-wall area ratio is being investigated. Results will be used to understand trends for expected noise reduction for typical construction types around the U.S. Copyright
