This work investigates the broadband noise generated from an array of CECs and how the array shape and size impact the sound environment.
This work was sponsored Sandia National Laboratories’ Water Power Technology department and by the Department of Energies’ Wind and Water Power Technologies Office.
Utilizing a random phaseshift for each of the sources results in a significant spread in potential depth-averaged, broadband SPL’s propagating from an array of MHK devices. This banding decays as the devices are spaced further apart.
