  • Abstract Objective: Acoustic dosimetry (AD) data collected on the International Space Station (ISS) were analysed to investigate the impact of impulse noise on crew noise exposure. Design: The noise exposure during work (LAeq16h) and sleep (LAeq8h) time, and the number of impulses >115 dB peak that occurred during each measurement activity, were calculated from the AD data. Two parametric studies were used to estimate the effect of 1) impulses in the original data set, and 2) hypothetical… CONTINUE READING
