This approach is based on an acoustic measuring technique which resembles the classical tomography techniques where the high frequency electronic magnitude waves are replaced by low frequency sound waves. Acoustic measuring instruments make use of transducers, transmitters (speakers) and receivers (microphones), and algorithms (embedded software) to measure the air temperature and flow velocity simultaneously. The prin- ciple is the following. Th
