University Thesis Work
Combining our own multi-faceted wind noise analysis with shared academic research.
We support academic research regarding ear-wind noise and we are proud to have had Cat-Ears included in thesis work performed at a major technical university in Germany. We are also proud of the fact that the final wind noise reduction prototype did not outperform Cat-Ears: "Figure 10 shows the comparison of the prototype created in this work (vs. Cat-Ears)... It turns out that a similar effect can be achieved with Cat-Ears."
We maintain copies of shared graduate thesis work performed in the United States and Germany. With the inclusion of university thesis work, we could have the most comprehensive library of ear-wind noise related research available. Please contact us if you are interested in our involvement regarding passive ear-wind noise reduction investigation and analysis. A small selection of thesis images, and a few charts, are shared below:
Wind tunnel (open jet type) research at a major technical university in Germany.
Measuring sources of wind turbulence / noise
Testing wind noise reduction approaches
Exhaustive analysis from 5 m/s (11.2 mph) to 20 m/s (44.7 mph) | Cat-Ears tests from 10 mph to 35 mph
Wind deflecting prototypes from thesis work at a major university in the United States.
Based on academic analysis of different wind noise reduction approaches,
we stand behind our products as the most effective devices of their kind.
