The wave superposition is based on the idea that an acoustic radiator can be approximated represented by the sum of the fields due to a finite number of interior point sources. But in practice, a large number of measurements must be used in order to achieve a desired resolution, which makes the reconstruction process very time consuming and high cost. In this paper, a combined wave superposition method is developed for reconstructing acoustic radiation from machine acoustical signals. This method combines the advantages of both the wave superposition and Helmholtz equation-least squares (HELS) methods. As such it allows for reconstruction of the acoustic field from an arbitrary object with relatively few measurements, thus significantly enhancing the reconstruction efficiency. In a semi-anechoic chamber, a cross-planar microphone array, which consists of 29 microphones, was successfully applied to obtain the two-dimensional mapping of the sound sources. The location, the sound pressure and the properties in frequency domain of the sound sources can be found through this method precisely. The experimental results demonstrate that the combined method is very eff ective in the low-to-mid regime, and can potentially become a powerful noise diagnostic tool.
