AIRPORT COOPERATIVE RESEARCH PROGRAM Airports are vital national resources. They serve a key role in transÂ portation of people and goods and in regional, national, and interÂ national commerce. They are where the nationâs aviation system connects with other modes of transportation and where federal responÂ sibility for managing and regulating air traffic operations intersects with the role of state and local governments that own and operate most airports. Research is necessary to solve common operating problems, to adapt appropriate new technologies from other industries, and to introduce innovations into the airport industry. The Airport CooperaÂ tive Research Program (ACRP) serves as one of the principal means by which the airport industry can develop innovative nearÂterm solutions to meet demands placed on it. The need for ACRP was identified in TRB Special Report 272: Airport Research Needs: Cooperative Solutions in 2003, based on a study sponÂ sored by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The ACRP carries out applied research on problems that are shared by airport operating agencies and are not being adequately addressed by existing federal research programs. It is modeled after the successful National CooperaÂ tive Highway Research Program and Transit Cooperative Research ProÂ gram. The ACRP undertakes research and other technical activities in a variety of airport subject areas, including design, construction, mainteÂ nance, operations, safety, security, policy, planning, human resources, and administration. The ACRP provides a forum where airport operaÂ tors can cooperatively address common operational problems. The ACRP was authorized in December 2003 as part of the Vision 100ÂCentury of Aviation Reauthorization Act. The primary participants in the ACRP are (1) an independent governing board, the ACRP Oversight Committee (AOC), appointed by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation with representation from airport operating agencies, other stakeholders, and relevant industry organizations such as the Airports Council InternationalÂNorth America (ACIÂNA), the American AssociaÂ tion of Airport Executives (AAAE), the National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO), Airlines for America (A4A), and the Airport Consultants Council (ACC) as vital links to the airport community; (2) the TRB as program manager and secretariat for the governing board; and (3) the FAA as program sponsor. In October 2005, the FAA executed a contract with the National Academies formally initiating the program. The ACRP benefits from the cooperation and participation of airport professionals, air carriers, shippers, state and local government officials, equipment and service suppliers, other airport users, and research orgaÂ nizations. Each of these participants has different interests and responÂ sibilities, and each is an integral part of this cooperative research effort. Research problem statements for the ACRP are solicited periodically but may be submitted to the TRB by anyone at any time. It is the responsibility of the AOC to formulate the research program by idenÂ tifying the highest priority projects and defining funding levels and expected products. Once selected, each ACRP project is assigned to an expert panel, appointed by the TRB. Panels include experienced practitioners and research specialists; heavy emphasis is placed on including airport proÂ fessionals, the intended users of the research products. The panels preÂ pare project statements (requests for proposals), select contractors, and provide technical guidance and counsel throughout the life of the project. The process for developing research problem statements and selecting research agencies has been used by TRB in managing cooperÂ ative research programs since 1962. As in other TRB activities, ACRP project panels serve voluntarily without compensation. Primary emphasis is placed on disseminating ACRP results to the intended endÂusers of the research: airport operating agencies, service providers, and suppliers. The ACRP produces a series of research reports for use by airport operators, local agencies, the FAA, and other interested parties, and industry associations may arrange for workÂ shops, training aids, field visits, and other activities to ensure that results are implemented by airportÂindustry practitioners.

The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit, self-perpetuating society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use for the general welfare. On the authority of the charter granted to it by the Congress in 1863, the Academy has a mandate that requires it to advise the federal government on scientific and technical matters. Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone is president of the National Academy of Sciences. The National Academy of Engineering was established in 1964, under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences, as a parallel organization of outstanding engineers. It is autonomous in its administration and in the selection of its members, sharing with the National Academy of Sciences the responsibility for advising the federal government. The National Academy of Engineering also sponsors engineering programs aimed at meeting national needs, encourages education and research, and recognizes the superior achievements of engineers. Dr. Charles M. Vest is president of the National Academy of Engineering. The Institute of Medicine was established in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to secure the services of eminent members of appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public. The Institute acts under the responsibility given to the National Academy of Sciences by its congressional charter to be an adviser to the federal government and, on its own initiative, to identify issues of medical care, research, and education. Dr. Harvey V. Fineberg is president of the Institute of Medicine. The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associate the broad community of science and technology with the Academyâs purposes of furthering knowledge and advising the federal government. Functioning in accordance with general policies determined by the Academy, the Council has become the principal operating agency of both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in providing services to the government, the public, and the scientific and engineering communities. The Council is administered jointly by both Academies and the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone and Dr. Charles M. Vest are chair and vice chair, respectively, of the National Research Council. The Transportation Research Board is one of six major divisions of the National Research Council. The mission of the Transporta- tion Research Board is to provide leadership in transportation innovation and progress through research and information exchange, conducted within a setting that is objective, interdisciplinary, and multimodal. The Boardâs varied activities annually engage about 7,000 engineers, scientists, and other transportation researchers and practitioners from the public and private sectors and academia, all of whom contribute their expertise in the public interest. The program is supported by state transportation departments, federal agencies including the component administrations of the U.S. Department of Transportation, and other organizations and individu- als interested in the development of transportation. www.TRB.org www.national-academies.org

ACRP Report 89: Guidelines for Airport Sound Insulation Programs provides updated guidelines for sound insulation of residential and other noiseÂsensitive buildings for potenÂ tial use by airport and nonÂairport sponsors to develop and effectively manage their aircraft noise insulation projects. NoiseÂsensitive buildings are defined as âresidences (single family and multiÂfamily), schools, hospitals, churches, and other nonÂcompatible structures idenÂ tified in the sponsorâs NCP and approved by the FAA as a project in the NCP,â by the AIP Handbook, FAA Order 5100.38C, paragraph 812.A. As the guidelines were being finalized, Program Guidance Letter (PGL) 12Â09, âAIP EliÂ gibility and Justification Requirements for Noise Insulation Projects,â was released by the FAA on August 17, 2012. The PGL replaced existing guidance on the implementation of AIPÂfunded noise insulation projects as had previously been provided per Section 812 of the AIP Handbook, FAA Order 5100Â38C. At the time that the ACRP Report 89 guidelines were finalized, there were outstanding questions regarding the PGL. These outstanding questions and related issues are discussed throughout the text with advice to users to contact their ADO project manager regarding any further guidance or information that has been provided since the publication of these guidelines. This research will be very helpful to improve current practices and ensure compliant airÂ port sound insulation programs. The research significantly expands information available on best practices and current standards and requirements for sound insulation of homes as well as for other eligible noiseÂsensitive buildings. The guidelines are a very useful tool for airport staff, consultants, and FAA offices to use with the AIP guidance provided in the AIP Handbook as updated by PGLs from time to time. To assist sponsorÂapproved noise programs, FAA published AC 150/5000Â9A in July 1993 that announced the availability of the Guidelines for the Sound Insulation of Residences Exposed to Aircraft Operations (the guidelines). The guidelines themselves were published in 1992 for military and FAA airport programs to serve as a project management handbook for studying, initiating, and implementing sound insulation measures developed under airport noise compatibility programs. The guidelines were updated in 2005 by the U.S. Navy for application at military airports. The Navy updated the guidelines to meet their current proÂ gram objectives and to reflect current building codes and insulation product specifications. This research has developed updated guidance for sponsors to effectively manage noise insulation programs of eligible structures in conformance with FAA Noise Compatibility Program (NCP) and Airport Improvement Program (AIP) funding requirements.

A separate contractorâs final report, which provides background to the research conÂ ducted in support of the guidebook, has been posted on the ACRP Project 02Â24 web page at http://apps.trb.org/cmsfeed/TRBNetProjectDisplay.asp?ProjectID=2795. AUTHOR ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The proposal submitted recognized that the experience required to update the guidelines would not reside in a single individual or firm. As such, the Jones Payne Group (JPG) proposed that it would be necessary to assemble a research team of individuals who are experts in key areas of sound insulation proÂ grams. JPG assembled a team of individuals from seven firms who have expertise in their assigned areas of inquiry as well as a broad perspective and experience in sound insulation programs.
