Abstract

The research described in this paper pertains to two improvements to the synthesized sonic boom signatures to be reproduced in sonic boom simulators. Both improvements are aimed at increasing the realism of the signatures that would be reproduced for subjective testing as compared to those which are purely the result of computational fluid dynamics and propagation predictions. The first of these improvements is including the effects of terrain, specifically the presence of buildings and topographical features. The second but related improvement is the analysis and inclusion of post boom noise.
