This volume is the second in a series of three volumes (AD-403 712 and AD-403 730) on the physical aspects of noise control in aircraft engine test cells and ground run-up suppressors. This volume provides methods for planning and de signing engine test cell facilities. Procedures are presented for determining noise reduction requirements of an aircraft engine test cell from the noise source characteristics, the acous tic criteria and the location. The reference test cell concept is used. Procedures for de signing a facility to meet these noise reduction requirements are presented. The analysis and design of ground run-up noise suppressors are similarly treated, but in less detail.
