ASA 2022 Special Focus Boom Session

version 2, 08-MAR-2022

A special sonic boom focus prediction session is planned as part of
the 182nd Acoustical Society of America (ASA) meeting to be held from
23-27 May 2022 at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel in Denver,
Colorado. The session is intended to cover the state-of-the-art for
predicting focused booms on the ground under aircraft
accelerations. Near-field waveforms would be provided and participants
are encouraged to apply their best practices for predicting sonic boom
ground signatures and thier associated metrics for the cases provided.

Important Dates:
– 24 January 2022: Due date for ASA abstracts
– 23 May 2022: Submission of results to the NASA Box file share location.
– 23-27 May 2022: 182nd ASA Meeting

The Third Sonic Boom Prediction Workshop Propagation Presentation Guidelines
(Version 2) will be reused for ASA 2022:

The test cases are in the case1 and case2 directories.
See the files Focusing_Case1_Spec_v0.txt and Focusing_Case2_Spec_v0.txt
in these directories for details.

Previous focus boom optional case from AIAA SBPW3
allow new participants an opportunity to practice the focus boom
prediction process and self-evaluate results based on published
submissions and submission statistics.
