A Unified Correction Method for the Acoustic Refraction (UCMAR) Caused by a Three Dimensional Shear Layer
The acoustic refraction induced by the shear layer in an open-jet wind tunnel causes a source shift when estimating the source location with beamforming. Traditional correction methods of the shear layer refraction are achieved through a computational eff ort or limited using one-dimensional or planar shear layer. In this paper, the unified correction method for acoustic refraction (UCMAR) is suitable for the three dimensions that covers several traditional forms. Meanwhile, the UCMAR can consider more general configurations, such as the temperature gradient on both sides of the shear layer and the off -axis source in a circular wind tunnel. These configurations are validated through a ray tracing technique and a benchmark example. In addition, the principle of time reverse is integrated with UCMAR. This results in a reverse UCMAR, which can quickly attain an acceptable solution.
