Walls at Airports


I'm designing a sound-barrier wall for an airport. The specifications
list a basic wind pressure and a jet-blast loading pressure without
saying whether these are additive or not. I've asked for clarification
but haven't received an answer and I don't know whether they have the
knowledge determine in what proportions to combine the two loadings.

Has anybody had any experience in this area?
