Abstract
This paper concerns an experimental study of the effects of the grid-generated turbulence on the propagation of acoustical waves in a wind tunnel. Turbulence effects are investigated using ultrasound time-of-flight method, employing counter-propagating ultrasonic pulses. Turbulence effects are an important source of error in the active probing of the atmosphere using sound sources. The emphasis is on the propagation time fluctuations and their interpretation using theoretical analysis of Kolmogorov.
