This paper discusses new work concerned with developing structural sensors and associated signal processing techniques that provide time domain estimates of far-field pressure or structural wave-number information. The sensor arrangement consists of multiple accelerometers whose outputs are passed through an array of linear filters. The impulse response of each filter is constructed from the appropriate Green's function for the elemental source area associated with each sensor. The outputs of the filter array are then summed in order to predict far-field pressure or wave-number information somewhat analogous to the well-known boundary element technique. A major significance of the approach is that it provides time domain information and can thus be efficiently applied to active structural acoustic control approaches.
