Abstract:

Experimental investigations were conducted of suppression principles including developing an experimental data base, developing a better understanding of jet noise suppression principles, and formulating empirical methods for the acoustic design of jet noise suppressors. Acoustic scaling has been experimentally demonstrated, and five optimum nozzles have been selected for subsequent anechoic free-jet testing. In-jetin-jet and in-jetfar-field exhaust noise diagnostic measurements were conducted using a Laser Velocimeter LV. Measurements were performed on a conical nozzle and a coannular plug nozzle. Two-point, spacetime measurements using a two-LV system were completed for the conical nozzle. Measurements of mean velocity, turbulent velocity, eddy convection speed, and turbulent length scale were made for a subsonic ambient jet and for a sonic heated jet. For the coannular plug nozzle, a similar series of two-point, laser-correlation measurements were performed. In addition, cross correlations between the laser axial component of turbulence and a far-field acoustic microphone were performed. This volume is part of the four volume set that constitutes the Task 3 final report. The other volumes are Volume I-Verification of Suppression Principles and Development of Suppression Prediction Methods, Volume II-Parametric Testing and Source Measurements, Volume III-Suppressor Concepts Optimization.
