Aeroacoustic Test Heads

Given the aero-dynamic and acoustic testing requirements, we developed our own aero-acoustic heads for wind tunnel testing.  Our test heads have realistic facial characteristics, several life-like ear options, and simulated ear canals.  In this regard, the ability to replicate and capture wind noise accurately under different yaw and pitch scenarios is critical.  In addition, our test heads provide expanded in-canal microphone options.

During 2019, we developed our second-generation test head.  It provides aditional flow visualization capabilities.

Ears Shape Variation

We obtained six skin-like silicon ear sets designed for medical training or binaural recording.  After wind tunnel evaluation, we selected three sets for use with our specialized test heads - with size and concha cavum variation.

Examples of commercially available acoustic heads.  They are primarily utilized for realistic binaural recording.

Aerodynamic Test Heads

Examples of artificial heads used by several bicycling helmet manufacturers to test aerodynamics and ventilation.

Multi-faceted testing helps us develop the most effective products.
