Experiments of Sound Field Reproduction Inside Aircraft Cabin Mock-Up
Sound environment reproduction of various flight conditions in aircraft mock-ups is a valuable tool for the study, prediction, demonstration, and jury testing of interior aircraft sound quality and comfort. To provide a faithful reproduced sound environment, time, frequency, and spatial characteristics should be preserved. Physical sound field reproduction approaches for spatial sound reproduction are mandatory to immerse the listener body in the proper sound field so that localization cues are recreated. Vehicle mock-ups pose specific problems for sound field reproduction. Confined spaces, needs for invisible sound sources, and a singular acoustical environment make the use of open-loop sound field reproduction technologies not ideal. In this paper preliminary experiments in an aircraft mock-up with classical multichannel least-square methods are reported. The paper presents objective evaluations of reproduced sound fields. Promising results along with practical compromises are reported.
