The second MA|AM Course at DLR in Göttingen took place in May 2016 with 30 participants from seven different countries.
Due to positive feedback from the participants of the last courses the MA|AM course will continue to take place every two years.
The next MAA|AM course is planned to take place at DLR in Göttingen in spring 2018.
Aim of this course is to improve the knowledge for the practical application of microphone array measurements in wind tunnels, including the post-processing and the interpretation of the achieved results. Test engineers can participate to obtain the necessary knowledge to improve the quality of aeroacoustic measurements with microphone arrays and prevent costly errors. Contractors and end-users of array measurement results will learn how to assess the potential of aeroacoustic wind tunnel measurements and how to interpret the achieved results appropriately.
In this course a knowledge base regarding the necessary theoretical background, practical knowledge about the hardware requirements and the potential of post processing will be taught. The theoretical part will concentrate on those aspects of aeroacoustics relevant to microphone array measurements. Besides giving lectures on the fundamental aspects, special emphasis will be placed on solutions of the practical problems which are faced during the implementation of this technique in wind tunnels. During practice the participants will have the opportunity in small groups to carry out recording and valuation of data, with special emphasis being given to the impact of experimental settings on the beamforming results. The post processing and particularly the various deconvolution algorithms, including their advantages and disadvantages, will be explained and demonstrated.
This course is mainly intended for engineers and scientists who already have basic knowledge of acoustics or aeroacoustics and already work or will work with microphone arrays or with the results of microphone array measurements in industrial or scientific applications.
Besides this, the course is intended for engineers who need to understand the possibilities and limitations of microphone array measurements.
During the course many problems arising in aeroacoustic measurements and microphone arrays will be treated - in theory as well as in practice.
The course ran from Monday (May 23, 2016) to Wednesday (May 25, 2016). All presentations were given in English. Registration began at 8:15 on Monday, in the DLR School Lab (Building 6).
The course was divided in half day lectures and practices. Each course day included a one hour lunch break and coffee breaks. The lectures on Thursday covered a demonstration experiment. A detailed time table can be downloaded here.
