HMMH has provided INM training for more than 20 years. HMMH now offers AEDT training with the same focus on practical implementation from a user perspective.HMMH participated in the AEDT Design Review Group (DRG) from its inception and has invested in developing internal tools and modeling techniques to facilitate seamless transition from INM to AEDT.
This course will provide users with an overview of the new model, with a focus on transitioning from legacy tools and computational resources. It provides an excellent background on a broad range of airport noise topics and is designed for Airport Noise Officers and other professionals dealing with aircraft noise.
Lead instructor Brad Nicholas supports projects by performing airline fleet analysis, aircraft noise measurements and analysis, radar data analysis, and aircraft noise modeling. He is an experienced user of the FAA’s Aviation Environmental Design Tool (AEDT), and Braunstein + Berndt’s SoundPLAN. Visit his bio for more information.
AEDT Overview - Provides a general overview of AEDT and addresses any initial questions. Introduces the model by comparing the features in AEDT to those in the legacy tools.
AEDT Basics - Introduces the basics of how to setup up standard modeling inputs using the model’s user interface.
AEDT Power Tools - Provides an introduction to the layout of the AEDT database and how to use the AEDT Standard Input File (ASIF) to build model inputs. Examples using SQL to edit database features and manipulation of GIS data through the included ESRI tools will also be introduced.
