Learn how to measure noise and experimentally analyze noise‑source and reduction mechanisms, tackling the relevant fluid dynamics and acoustic parameters. This Aeroacoustics - Measurement Techniques course is offered at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft).


Companies are increasingly in need of professionals who can design, prototype and test aerodynamic components with integrated noise-reduction technologies.

In this Aeroacoustics - Measurement Techniques course at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) you will acquire the knowledge and tools to analyze and measure noise sources from aerodynamic systems, including microphone and beamforming applications.

More advanced aeroacoustic analogies based upon velocimetry will also be discussed, including some basics on the uncertainty of the measurements. You will review fundamental aeroacoustic principles and propagation theories and their applications to open and closed wind‑tunnels as well as for in‑field measurements.


After taking this course you will be able to:

  • Analyze fundamental aerodynamic noise mechanisms
  • Discuss and decide upon the most relevant acoustic parameters to be measured for a specific aerodynamic system
  • Get acquainted with fundamental and advanced measurement techniques for aeroacoustics
  • Design a simple experimental setup for investigating or isolating sources of noise
  • Identify the most important aerodynamic parameters that affect the noise uncertainties in wind‑tunnel and in‑field measurements for aeroacoustics

Programme Structure

Modules include:
  • Signal processing and noise sources
  • Summary of the basics of sound propagation and acoustic analogies
  • Basics of single microphone operation and measurements in near-field and far-field configurations
  • Beamforming technology and response of different microphones
  • Velocity and pressure measurements
  • PIV in aeroacoustics
  • Measurements in wind-tunnels
  • Basic application of in field measurements
