Wind-induced noise often contaminates noise measurements in windy environments despite the use of wind-shields. Techniques have been developed by various researchers to reduce the influences of background wind induced micro-phone noises during measurement. However these techniques have not yet yielded accurate results. An attempt was undertaken in this study to improve on existing design methods and understand the mechanisms associated with wind noise measurements. This study aims to lay the foundation for further experiments to be conducted to investigate the performance and characteristics of wind noise in a measuring microphone. Qualitative study of the design and con-struction of a suitable experimental rig was carried out to investigate the effects and characteristics of wind noise on a measuring microphone in a controlled environment.
