Randy Waldeck, PE, Principal Acoustician of CSDA Design Group, will lead a presentation describing our work on the current Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) at the upcoming Airport Noise Mitigation Symposium (ANMS). Through this study for the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies, CSDA is evaluating methods for determining interior noise levels used in airport sound insulation programs nationwide. Our team of expert researchers is evaluating acoustical measurement methods employed in FAA-sponsored airport sound insulation programs including aircraft flyover, elevated exterior loudspeaker, ground level exterior loudspeaker, indoor loudspeaker and sound intensity.

Randy will discuss past, present and future ACRP research and how the national standards for noise measurement methods are evolving. He is working with the following consultants on the ARCP study:

  • Dr. Paul D. Schomer, PE, Principal Investigator
  • John C. Freytag, PE, Researcher
  • Herbert L. Singleton, PE, Researcher
