Comparison of two structural sensing approaches for active structural acoustic control
A numerical study comparing the use of two structural sensing approaches for sound radiation control is performed on a baffled rectangular plate. The first sensing approach implements an array of accelerometers whose outputs are filtered to construct an estimate of the sound pressure radiated at given angles in the far field. The second method uses the same array of point sensors to estimate the net volume acceleration of the plate. Results show the improved performances of the sensor observing far-field sound radiation over a volume acceleration based on sensor.
