TITLE: Connecting problems in nonlinear acoustics with their human impacts

PRESENTER: Dr. Kent Gee, Associate Professor of Physics, Brigham Young University

ABSTRACT: In this presentation, I'll first review essential physics of nonlinear sound propagation, and then discuss on-going research challenges in outdoor nonlinear propagation that are motivated by human impacts. These include perception of crackle from military jet aircraft and space vehicle launches, community response to sonic booms from rockets and supersonic civil aircraft, and hearing loss risk during weapons training.
