Impulse Sound Propagation for Environmental Noise Assessment

This standard describes engineering methods to calculate the propagation of high-energy impulsive sounds through the atmosphere for purposes of assessment of environmental noise. The methods yield estimates for the mean C-weighted sound exposure level of impulsive sound at distances between the source and receiver ranging from 1 to 30 km. Equations to estimate the standard deviation about the mean C-weighted sound exposure levels are provided.The methods apply for explosive masses between 50 g and 1000 kg.
