    Over the past few decades noise pollution has emerged as an important issue in modern society and provides much of the impetus for the development of noise prediction and reduction techniques. The ability to locate different sound radiating sources and to determine their contributions to the overall sound distribution is a first step towards solving the noise problem. This research deals with the development of methods to compute acoustic radiation from a stationary vibrating object and, vice versa, methods to iden- tify the sources of sound on the surface of the object, provided a measurement of the sound field is available.
