Exterior vehicle sounds have been introduced in electric vehicles and as external human–machine interfaces for automated vehicles. While previous research has studied the effect of exterior vehicle sounds on detectability and acceptance, the present study takes on a different approach by examining the efficacy of such sounds in deterring...

Sound evaluation based on listening experiments is very costly and time-consuming. Alternatively, the sounds under evaluation can be compared using psychoacoustic metrics, under the hypothesis that sounds that differ by more than one just-noticeable difference (JND) are perceived as significantly different from each other. Wellestablished...

Literature suggests that psychoacoustic metrics, which are established by models firmly based on the human auditory system, are able to better approximate perceptual attributes of sounds in a quantitative manner than conventional metrics based on the sound pressure level. Therefore, psychoacoustic metrics are commonly used as sound quality...

Complex acoustic systems typically present three-dimensional distributions of noise sources. Conventional acoustic imaging methods with planar microphone arrays are unsuitable for three-dimensional acoustic imaging, given the computational demands and the incapability to explicitly account for the presence of multiple sources. This paper...

Aeroacoustic measurements with microphones in closed-section wind tunnels are typically hampered by the pressure fluctuations of the turbulent boundary layer (TBL) on the tunnel's walls, ceiling, or floor, where phased microphone arrays are usually mounted. This paper evaluates the performance of several advanced acoustic imaging methods that...

Complex test models in aeroacoustic experiments often present an arrangement of noise sources within a three–dimensional space. Planar microphone array normally have difficulties in separating sound sources in the direction normal to the array plane due to their poorer spatial resolution in this direction. This paper evaluates the benefits of...

Noise annoyance caused by wind turbines is a critical issue for the societal acceptance of wind energy. Wind turbine noise exposure is typically assessed using conventional time–averaged metrics, however, the literature suggests that these metrics do not fully capture the sound properties responsible for the perceived noise annoyance. Therefore,...

The landing gear system is the dominant airframe noise source for most modern commercial aircraft during approach. This manuscript reports the results from the ALLEGRA (Advanced Low Noise Landing (Main and Nose) Gear for Regional Aircraft) project. This project assessed the performance of several highly realistic low–noise technologies (LNTs)...

Aeroacoustic measurements performed by flush-mounted microphone arrays on the walls of closed-section wind tunnels are contaminated by the hydrodynamic pressure fluctuations of the wall's boundary layer. This study evaluates three different microphone cavity geometries for mitigating this issue. Their improvement to the signal-to-noise ratio ...

Wind turbines represent an encouraging option for sustainable energy but their noise emissions can be an issue for their public acceptance. Noise reduction measures, such as trailing-edge serrations or permeable inserts, seem to offer promising results in reducing wind turbine noise levels. This manuscript presents a novel holistic approach...

This paper explores the advantages of combining asynchronous microphone array measurements for acoustic source mapping in two and three–dimensional applications. Four different approaches are considered, three consisting of the combination of the source maps (arithmetic mean, geometric mean, and minimum value), and a fourth one obtained by...

The newly refurbished vertical tunnel (V-tunnel) at Delft University of Technology has been redesigned as a state-of-the-art facility for research in aeroacoustics (A-tunnel), as well as fundamental studies in laminar-turbulent transition and flow control. This manuscript focuses on the design and refurbishment aspects of the facility,...

In this paper, the performance of four acoustic imaging methods: conventional frequency domain beamforming (CFDBF), functional beamforming (FUNBF), enhanced high resolution CLEAN–SC (EHR–CLEAN–SC) and generalized inverse beamforming (GIBF), is investigated in terms of accuracy and variability. Three experimental test cases are considered: 1)...

This paper analyses the influence of microphone cavity geometry on beamforming measurements with a turbulent boundary layer present on the microphone array. A 16- microphone array was tested in the anechoic open-jet wind tunnel of the Delft University of Technology. The array was placed on a flat plate mounted flush with the exit nozzle of the...

Functional Projection Beamforming (FPB) is a method proposed by Dougherty in 2019, based on functional beamforming. It yields the integrated sound spectrum for a given region of integration (ROI) within the functional beamforming source map. FPB does not suffer from the loss of level that can affect functional beamforming, especially for coarse...

The noise emissions of a full-scale nose landing gear (NLG), measured in a wind tunnel and obtained from computational simulations, are compared with those of three regional aircraft types recorded in flyover measurements. A comparison is made with the noise prediction models of Fink, Guo, and German Aerospace Center (DLR). A good agreement...

Landing gear noise is considered the dominant airframe noise source on aircraft during approach. Previous studies indicated the presence of a strong tonal sound on flyovers of several commercial aircraft types, and suggested that it was caused by the interaction of open cavities in the nose landing gear (NLG) system with the flow. Airframe...

Engine noise shielding is an important measure towards low-noise aircraft configurations. Such designs are supported by prediction tools that indicate high values for shielding of engine noise. Most prediction models approximate the complex nature of engine noise to simple noise sources such as monopoles or dipoles. This work compares...
