Datasets of high spatial resolution scans of the airborne ultrasound field at the front, back and left side of an ultrasonic welding machine

Author(s):R. Schöneweiß, Christoph Kling, Christian Koch
Abstract:This dataset contains measuring data which are the result of investigations of the airborne ultrasound field of an ultrasonic welding machine. These investigations have been conducted within the scope of the EMPIR project 15HLT03: “Ears II - Metrology for modern hearing assessment and protecting public health from emerging noise sources”. In the context of “Ears II”, they served gaining knowledge for occupational safety and health. Here, the aim was to investigate the structure of the airborne ultrasound field at ultrasound related workplaces. Therefore, a reference workstation was set up in the laboratory of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB). The airborne ultrasound field of a typical industrial source of airborne ultrasound (an ultrasonic welding machine) was measured with a scanning microphone system with a high spatial resolution.
