Abstract:

The selection and testing of an inverse Fourier transform IFT algorithm for use with Minuteman In-Place continuous-wave CW data are described. The CW data are obtained in the presence of noise at unequally spaced frequency intervals the time response to be obtained is a transient. A trapezoidal approximation to the Fourier integral transform is selected. Time-domain effects of the IFT algorithm, an amplitude-windowing algorithm, a phase-unwrapping algorithm, typical CW sampling functions, and nominal measurement errors are investigated in a computerized simulation study using analytically defined input functions. IFT results are also presented for some typical CW data, and their validity, reliability, and accuracy are discussed.
