The performance of a constant area rectangular ejector with varying mixing length was investigated to determine the aeroacoustics interaction effects. The rectangular ejector investigation was conducted in two phases. The phase one investigation involved the testing of three different aspect ratio rectangular convergent nozzles at pressure between 15-45 psig to determine the acoustic and jet spreading characteristics. From these data a rectangular ejector incorporating endwall and ejector flap blowing was fabricated and investigated at pressure ratios between 2.0 and 5.0. These investigations were conducted at ejector flap length L to ejector throat widths W, LW of 11.0, 9.5, 8.0, 6.5, 5.0, 3.5, 2.0, and 0.9 to determine the ejector performance. The data for the rectangular ejector configuration investigated showed an aeroacoustic interaction in the presence ratio range of 3.3 - 3.8. However, the resulting performance was not improved to the degree experienced with axisymmetric ejectors. Author
