Acoustic Sources localization: Application to Wiper Aerodynamic Noises 2003-01-1700

The reduction of aerodynamic noise sources is today an important topic in automotive industry. In order to localize the different sources on the arm and blade, a 48 microphones acoustic antenna coupled with a software based on the beam-forming imaging method has been used. Obtained results are validated inside the car on track. Aerodynamic numerical simulations are compared to aerodynamic measurements. The turbulent kinetic energy distribution obtained from the simulations is then compared with measured sound sources localization maps: the results are presented and commented for two wiper configurations.
