L9 Using the RMS Wind Pressure as the Metric

For this analysis, we used the RMS of the sensor reading as the metric for the L9. The RMS of the reading is defined as:

The impact of the effects on the data is much clearer in this metric than in the mean. As in the Mean effects, there are 39 sensors, and the results produce a 12x39 matrix (the raw matrix is also available). The columns of the matrix (1 to 39) represent the sensors. The rows represent the measured values of the L9 effects. That is, the first three rows are the RMS sensor values at each of the three levels of Elevation angle, etc. The results are given in the correct units (Pa for the pressure sensors and m/s for the velocity sensors).

All Results
The image below is a graphical representation of the effects matrix. That is, rows in the image correspond to particular effects, while columns correspond to particular sensors. Brighter values represent higher RMS pressure.

Results for Each Effect
It is much clearer to look at the RMS for each effect graphically. Specifically, the elevation effects on the RMS values of the sensors are:

The AoA effects on the RMS values of the sensors are:

The UVG effects on the RMS values of the sensors are:

Finally, the DVG effects on the RMS values of the sensors are:
