acoular.fbeamform.integrate¶

acoular.fbeamform.
integrate
(data, grid, sector)¶ Integrates a sound pressure map over a given sector.
This function can be applied on beamforming results to quantitatively analyze the sound pressure in a given sector. If used with
Beamformer.result()
, the output is identical to the result of the intrinsicBeamformer.integrate
method. It can, however, also be used with theBeamformer.synthetic
output.Parameters:  data: array of floats
Contains the calculated sound pressures in Pa. If data has the same number of entries than the number of grid points only one value is returned. In case of a 2D array with the second dimension identical to the number of grid points an array containing as many entries as the first dimension is returned.
 grid: Grid object
Object of a
Grid
derived class that provides the grid locations. sector: array of floats
Tuple with arguments for the indices method of a
Grid
derived class (e.g.RectGrid.indices
orRectGrid3D.indices
). Possible sectors would be array([xmin, ymin, xmax, ymax]) or array([x, y, radius]).
Returns:  array of floats
The spectrum (all calculated frequency bands) for the integrated sector.
