Title Acoustical Evaluation of Combat Arms Firing Range, Patrick AFB, Florida.

Abstract An acoustical assessment was performed on the Combat Arms Firing Range at Patrick AFB in July 2013. It was determined that the noise in the firing range did not meet the definition of impulse noise in AFOSH Standard 48- 20 due to acoustical reflections. Therefore, it was recommended that acoustical absorption be added to these side walls to reduce the reverberant field.
