The study of the interaction between acoustics and flow has a long history, and has attracted many scholars. Consequently the major contributors to acoustic-flow interaction are known and improvements made on models to describe the various interactions, give a relative small impact to the overall effect. To validate these new models, experiments have to be more precise and accurate, otherwise no valid statement can be made if the measurements are agreeing with the improved models. The flow-acoustic interaction is commonly measured using impedance tubes through which a flow flows. In this paper, a linear uncertainty analysis is presented to determine the precision of the obtained impedance results. Such kind of analysis has been already reported in literature, but in this paper, the analysis has been expanded to include more uncertain variables and the method is investigated to show the limitations of such an analysis. As an application of the analysis, the measurement of a known impedance without flow has been analyzed, revealing the presence of bias errors in the measurement setup.
