In near-field acoustic holography sound field separation techniques make it possible to distinguish between sound coming from the two sides of the array. This is useful in cases where the sources are not confined to only one side of the array, e.g., in the presence of additional sources or reflections from the other side. This paper examines a separation technique based on measurement of the particle velocity in two closely spaced parallel planes. The purpose of the technique is to recover the particle velocity radiated by a source in the presence of disturbing sound from the opposite side of the array. The technique has been examined and compared with direct velocity based reconstruction, as well as with a technique based on the measurement of the sound pressure and particle velocity. The double layer velocity method circumvents some of the drawbacks of the pressure-velocity based reconstruction, and it can successfully recover the normal velocity radiated by the source, even in the presence of strong disturbing sound. © 2011 Acoustical Society of America.
