Beamforming Acústico

Beamforming is an array-based measurement technique enabling easy, one-shot measurement process for mapping the relative sound pressure and sound intensity contribution from a source.

Beamforming is the ideal technique for sound-source location from medium to long measurement distances. Basically, the source location is performed by estimating the amplitudes of plane (or spherical) waves incident towards the array from a chosen set of directions.

The angular resolution is 
inversely proportional to the array diameter measured in units of wavelength, so the array should be much larger than wavelength to get a fine angular resolution. At low frequencies, this requirement usually cannot be met, so here the resolution will be poor.

Beamforming is often used to improve the spatial resolution, and it is well-suited for large objects such as vehicles in wind tunnels, where the array is placed relatively far from the source, outside the turbulent airflow.

Beamforming with Microphone Array

Beamforming is valid for medium to high frequencies (500 Hz to 20 kHz), and can be expanded with holography when used close to sources such as engines in a test cell.

Unlike what the above image indicates, beamforming does not require the array to be larger than the sound source. For typical, irregular array designs, the beamforming method does not allow the measurement distance to be much smaller than the array diameter. On the other hand, the measurement distance should be kept as small as possible to achieve the finest possible resolution on the source surface.

Beamforming provides an acoustical map of noise sources by using an array of microphones to detect the direction of arrival of sound from the sources. The number of microphones in the microphone array system can vary from 18 to 144, and with an integrated camera you are able to see simple and intuitive measurement information in real-time.


Beamforming system

Brüel & Kjær beamforming system is setup with measurement and post-processing software, a planar sliced wheel array of 18 microphones and our LAN-XI Data Acquisition System. This system setup is ideal for noise-source identification, troubleshooting investigations, Squeak and Rattle testing and industrial plant noise measurements.

The patented wideband holography in the Brüel & Kjær beamforming system can be used to measure over a very wide frequency range. And with the addition of a transient option enables averaging in the domains of time, RPM and angle, making it ideal for powertrain analysis.
