Directional Attenuation of Jet Noise With Eccentric Coannular Nozzle InvestigatedJet noise and flow field were measured to follow up on observations made by Professor D. Papamoschou of the University of California at Irvine (NASA Grant NAG3-2345). When a dual-stream coannular nozzle was arranged non-concentrically, noise was attenuated significantly on the side where the annulus was thicker. A similar observation was also made in reference 2. The practical significance is obvious. If the bypass flow of a jet exhaust in flight could be diverted to form a thicker layer underneath, then less noise would be heard by an observer on the ground. In view of the current emphasis on jet noise abatement, researchers felt that the effect deserved further attention. This prompted an experiment to confirm the phenomenon in a larger facility and to obtain flow-field data to advance understanding of the mechanism.
