Acoustic one-port source data are commonly used to predict the plane wave sound generation in duct and pipe systems connected to fluid machines. The source data are usually determined experimentally, which assumes that linear time-invariant system theory can be used. Since some machines such as IC-engines and compressors generate very high sound levels in the connecting ducts or pipes it is of interest to investigate whether the assumption of linearity is justified. Linearity tests for linear system identification when both input and output signals can be measured are common in the literature. In the case when only the output signal can be measured linearity tests are not so readily found. This paper presents two different linearity coefficients for determining whether an acoustic one-port source under test is linear. Their sensitivity to random noise and their ability to detect non-linearities are investigated by simulations and measurements on several types of machines.
