This volume is the first in a series of three volumes (AD-403 701 and AD-403 712) concerned with the physical aspects of noise control in aircraft engine test cells and ground run-up suppressors. This volume presents recommended procedures for the measurement of noise control effectiveness. Three classes of measurement procedures are described. The first class is concerned with the description of the acoustical effectiveness of a facility as a whole. Such descriptions may be used to compare facilities with one another or to determine if a facility has met a given criterion. The second class of measurements is used to determine the most economical way of improving the noise control design of an existing facility. The third class of measurements is used to describe the acousti cal effectiveness of individual noise control components.
