U.S. Civil Aircraft Noise Annoyance Survey Design

  title={U.S. Civil Aircraft Noise Annoyance Survey Design},
  author={Rebecca Cointin and Natalia Sizov and James I. Hileman},
Community expectations with respect to noise exposure are changing and what might have been acceptable 15 years ago might not be today. While noise levels might be the same or less due to quieter aircraft, the volume of flights over communities as well as shifts in arrival/departure patterns seems to be shaping perceptions. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) initiated a new community survey to investigate community response to aviation noise. This survey is collecting data from a…

Leq+X: Re-Assessment of Exposure-Response Relationships for Aircraft Noise Annoyance and Disturbances to Improve Explained Variance

There is evidence from the literature that an increased fraction of people is highly annoyed by aircraft noise by given average sound levels than in previous decades. Among possible reasons are

Survey Results of a Pilot Sleep Study Near Atlanta International Airport

Investigation of potential effects of aircraft noise on sleep in households around Atlanta International Airport found no significant relationship between Lnight and self-reported general health or likelihood of self- reported diagnosis of sleep disorders, heart disease, hypertension or diabetes.

New Research on Community Reaction to Aircraft Noise in the United

In the U.S., the so-called “Schultz Curve” (a relationship between surveyed noise annoyance and associated noise exposure, formalized now as the FICON curve) has been a primary basis for FAA’s noise

Research Methods for Understanding Aircraft Noise Annoyances and Sleep Disturbance

This document explores the development and validation of a research protocol for a large-scale study of aircraft noise exposure-annoyance response relationships. Alternative research methods for

A first-principles model for estimating the prevalence of annoyance with aircraft noise exposure.

Numerous relationships between noise exposure and transportation noise-induced annoyance have been inferred by curve-fitting methods. The present paper develops a different approach. It derives a
