Abstract

Abstract A preliminary estimate, based on statistical data, is made of the likelihood of damage to large windows due to sonic bangs. On the basis of the mean window characteristics calculated from a field survey in Reading, it seems probable that about one large window in ten thousand will be broken by a typical sonic bang. The degree of confidence held for the result obtained cannot at the moment be very high because the effects of a number of the variables are still to be included in the analysis. These variables, listed in the report, are to be evaluated in due course.
