This work investigated noise sources and the effects of passive mixing and noise control schemes using vortex generating tabs on noise sources. It is believed that such information is necessary for jet noise modeling and provides guidance for active control of jets for noise mitigation that will follow. The bulk of this work attempts to correlate instantaneous large-amplitude features of the far acoustic field to the dynamic evolution and interaction of large-scale structures within the mixing-layer of ideally expanded, high-speed, high Reynolds number jets. Such information is essential for a better understanding of jet noise sources, and jet aeroacoustic modeling and control.
