Abstract

IBANA is a new research project to develop a computer-based procedure for designing the sound insulation of a building against aircraft noise. Work in the 1970s led to a design guide that has been widely used in Canada to design the sound insulation of residential buildings against aircraft noise. Unfortunately it is now very much out of date. Aircraft noise has changed, construction techniques have changed and it is now possible to produce a more accurate and a more convenient computer based procedure. This paper is a status report of this ongoing new project.
