Welcome to the San Francisco Bay Area Regional Chapter of the Acoustical Society of America. We are a community of professionals, researchers, students, and retirees within the field of acoustics. We aim to expand our knowledge, share insights and experiences, and advance the local acoustics community in the SF Bay Area. All are welcome to join our organization and participate in events.
Psychoacoustic Measures for Urban Air Mobility Noise in the Context of Ambient Sound
When: October 26, 2023 | 6PM – 8PM
560 Mission St, 6th Floor
San Francisco, CA 94105
Cost: Free to SF Bay Area Regional ASA Chapter Members
Presenter: Durand R Begault
Human Systems Integration Division
The noise component of future aircraft and operations from Urban Air Mobility (UAM) vehicles is widely recognized as a challenge to community acceptance. NASA’s RVLT (Revolutionary Vertical Lift Technology) program is currently supporting research in the area of human response and psychoacoustics in an effort to augment current metrics for traditional aircraft. This talk will review current work at NASA Ames’ Human Systems Integration Division to evaluate detection, annoyance, and acceptability of UAM sound, in the context of expected ambient sound conditions.
