A general applicable acoustic source identification method is the inverse frequency response function technique (IFRF). In the standard IFRF method acoustic pressures measured on a grid in the nearfield of the acoustic source are used. To relate the measured field pressures to the normal velocities on the surface of the source, a transfer matrix is calculated with a boundary element method. The resulting system of equations is ill-conditioned and can only be solved by applying regularization techniques. In this paper, it is described how the nearfield particle velocities can be used instead of pressures to reconstruct the original source vibrations. By means of a simulated experiment, a comparison is made between pressure based and velocity based IFRF.
