Abstract : This report presents the results of noise data measurements of an unsuppressed TF34-GE-100A engine and a community noise survey of the local area around the engine. Three recommendations were made. A two barrier design should be installed as an interim noise control measure. Justification and installation of a noise suppressor, as a long term solution, should be pursued. Day-night sound levels should continue to be monitored until adequate characterization of the airport noise environment is obtained. Keywords: Turbofan engines; Jet engine noise; Maryland; Community surveys.
