Aircraft Engine Test Cells Service
Airport Noise Monitoring, Planning & Test Facilities. If not suitably controlled and accounted for, noise associated with airports and airfields can cause serious disturbance to neighbouring communities. In addition to noise produced during flying operations, other major sources include ground testing of aircraft, engines, which often occurs at night and airport related traffic. Helicopters and heliports pose particular environmental noise problems.
Acoustic Associates can provide a service to assist Planners concerned with development and Airport Authorities concerned with noise control:
- Conduct long term noise monitoring.
- Produce Noise Contours using predictive computer software.
- Make environmental impact assessments in support of planning applications for airfield development, or for residential development in the vicinity of an airfield.
- Provide a complete service for the design, including engineering design, of noise suppressed engine ground testing facilities e.g. engine test cells, run-up enclosures (hush houses), run-up pens.
