Phased Array Beamforming Applied to Wind Tunnel And Fly-Over Tests 2010-36-0514
An introduction is given of phased array beamforming techniques for locating acoustic sources. Starting from basic principles, the Conventional Beamforming technique is described. It is explained how this technique can be applied to wind tunnel measurements. Further, a number of advanced array processing techniques are discussed. One chapter is devoted to the array processing technique for the location of moving sources. This technique can be applied to rotating sources, for example on wind turbine blades, and to source location on aircraft flying over a microphone array.
