AbstractIBANA-Calc is software that was developed to calculate the effect of sound insulation against aircraft noise and to provide the user with indoor noise levels for different outdoor aircraft noises and building constructions. The software is intended to be both more accurate and more convenient than previous approaches1 that have used look-up tables and single number ratings of sound insulation to provide this information.The program was written as part of the IBANA (Insulation Buildings Against Noise from Aircraft) project and includes a large database of new sound transmission loss data of building façade elements as well as a database of aircraft noise spectra both collected as part of the project.It is intended that the software be used as a convenient tool to aid in the calculation of the effect of various sound insulation designs. The software is not an expert system and as such the user must have some expertise in the area of noise control engineering.
