Airport Support

Since 1990, Applied Acoustic Design has supported major aero-engine manufacturers, major airport operators and major airlines. We support airports with strategy formulation, noise measurement, data reduction and reporting. Examples of our work include:

  • Air-noise contour modelling (FAA INM)
  • Assessment followed by management plan for mitigation of ground noise;
  • Assessment of the reduction in ground noise emissions when substituting Auxiliary Power Units with Fixed Electrical Ground Power;
  • Atmospheric noise propagation predictions for engine cells;
  • Atmospheric noise propagation predictions for on-wing run-up pens;
  • Auditing of ground run-up pen noise emissions including comparisons with run logs;
  • Consultative & Specialist Committee technical support;
  • Evaluation of aircraft noise impact upon libraries;
  • Evaluation of aircraft noise impact upon schools;
  • Evaluation of aircraft noise mitigation measures upon libraries;
  • Evaluation of aircraft noise mitigation measures upon schools;
  • Production of ground noise contours;
  • Measurement and prediction of ground noise emissions arising from re-configured runways/taxi-ways/stands and temporary use during runway resurfacing works;
  • Measurement of noise arising from reverse thrust including comparison by aircraft type, and operator; consideration of reduced impact with advancing airframe technology;
  • Permanent microphone site installations (including planning & infrastructure) and calibration maintenance;
  • Separation of aircraft noise from total noise in a large number of residential community locations nearby to airports;
  • Temporary microphone site installations, data retrieval and calibration maintenance.
