Short summary
Extensive measurements in the area of wind turbines were performed in order to validate a sound propagation model. The measurements were carried out under various environmental conditions and included the acquisition of acoustical, meteorological and wind turbine performance data. By processing and analysing the measurement data, validation cases and input parameters for the propagation model were derived. Comparing measured and modelled propagation losses, generally good agreement is observed.
