Recommended Community Noise Model Enhancements to Improve Prediction of Helicopter Activity Impacts
TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Results Digest 24: Recommended Community Noise Model Enhancements to Improve Prediction of Helicopter Activity Impacts provides an overview of research conducted to identify improvements to the most common methods for predicting helicopter community noise, including the research tasks, findings, final conclusions, and next steps. While the research did not attempt to identify which noise metric best predicts annoyance, it offers a computational methodology from which suggested metrics may be accurately determined.
