This paper proposes a noise radiation sensor consisting of an array of independent piezoelectric patches connected to an adaptive linear combiner. The coefficients of the linear combiner are adapted in such a way that the mean-square error between the reconstructed volume displacement (or velocity) and either numerical or experimental data is minimized. A numerical study is conducted, to analyze the influence of the size of the piezoelectric array on the reconstructed volume velocity.
