The book describes recent developments in aeroacoustic measurements in wind tunnels and the interpretation of the resulting data. The reader will find the latest measurement techniques described along with examples of the results.
From the reviews:
"Aeroacoustic Measurements, edited by Thomas Mueller, aims to provide a single reference volume for practitioners assembled by acknowledged experts in the field. … Throughout Aeroacoustic Measurements there are up-to-date case studies, real experimental data and references to put the information in context and show its practical relevance. Its unique strength is the considerable amount of low-level technical detail that would otherwise remain unavailable … . This well-written and concise volume will prove to be invaluable for those involved in aeroacoustic measurement work … ." (K. Takeda, Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Vol. 502, 2004)
From the Back Cover
The goal of aeroacoustic measurements is to provide a basis for assessing mechanisms of noise generation, and to develop methods of reducing noise to more acceptable levels. However, the measurements themselves are complex, and require a deep understanding of the experimental facility utilized (such as a wind tunnel), measurement instrumentation, and data analysis techniques.
