A brief discussion is given of the physical nature of sonic booms, and other impulsive noises, and the parameters, such as over-pressure, duration, and mechanical impulse, which are used to characterize booms. This is followed by an overview of the response of structures - - particularly buildings -- to sonic booms and a review of the damage history observed due to supersonic overflights. The report concludes with a summary of the observed effects of impulsive noise on terrain and natural structures. (Author)
