Patent Number: 8,576,666

Title: Graphical user interface for flow noise modeling, analysis, and array design

Abstract: A system is provided that employs a programmable computer on which a graphical user interface provides parametric design and analysis of pressure sensor arrays used in aero- or hydroacoustic investigations. Use of the system allows for scientific and parametric investigations of turbulent boundary layer physics, as well as iterative array design optimization. Additionally, the system including the graphical user interface facilitates comparison of the results of current models for wall pressure with past theoretical or experimental wall pressure.
