The threshold for transient cavitation produced in water by pulsed ultrasound was measured as a function of pulse duration and pulse repetition frequency at both 0.98 and 2.30 MHz. The cavitation events were detected with a passive acoustic technique which relies upon the scattering of the irradiation field by the bubble clouds associated with the events.(More)
Static engine run-up noise measurements have been made on the F-22 Raptor at low and high power settings. At afterburner, the propagation measurements reveal significant evidence of nonlinearity in that there is much greater high-frequency energy than is predicted by linear theory. The measurements have been compared against the results of a nonlinear(More)
To address the question of the role of nonlinear effects in the propagation of noise radiated by high-power jet aircraft, extensive measurements were made of the F-22A Raptor during static engine run-ups. Data were acquired at low-, intermediate-, and high-thrust engine settings with microphones located 23-305 m from the aircraft along several angles.(More)
Bicoherence analysis has been used to characterize nonlinear effects in the propagation of noise from a model-scale, Mach-2.0, unheated jet. Nonlinear propagation effects are predominantly limited to regions near the peak directivity angle for this jet source and propagation range. The analysis also examines the practice of identifying nonlinear propagation(More)

Spatial properties of noise statistics near unheated, laboratory-scale supersonic jets yield insights into source characteristics and near-field shock formation. Primary findings are (1) waveforms with positive pressure skewness radiate from the source with a directivity upstream of maximum overall level and (2) skewness of the time derivative of the(More)
A description is given of a precise technique for measuring the threshold for acoustic cavitation inception. The system, which is automated so as to remove operator involvement, utilizes a slow ramping of the acoustic pressure amplitude until cavitation occurs. The detection criterion is the generation of a sufficiently intense sonoluminescent signal.(More)
In the collection and analysis of high-amplitude jet noise data for nonlinear acoustic propagation, both model-scale and full-scale measurements have limitations. Model-scale measurements performed in anechoic facilities are usually limited by transducer and data acquisition system bandwidths and maximum propagation distance. The accuracy of full-scale(More)
There is evidence to suggest that nonlinearity is important in the propagation of high-amplitude jet noise [Gee et al. spectral density (PSD) is used to assess the impact of jet noise on the surrounding environment, but such an assessment requires multiple measurement locations to observe the nonlinear evolution of the PSD. The difference in the PSDs(More)
The overall sound pressure levels of noise radiated by military jet aircraft along certain angles are such that nonlinearity is likely to influence the propagation. Bispectral analysis of noise data from the F/A-18E Super Hornet has been carried out in order to provide further evidence that nonlinear effects are indeed present. The bicoherence, which is a(More)
