Published near-field analyses of full-scale jet noise are limited, and the application of observed laboratory-scale phenomena to full-scale jets is not well understood. To obtain a greater understanding of the connection between radiated noise and source characteristics in full-scale, heated, supersonic jets produced by military aircraft, extensive(More)
Meaningful use of the autocorrelation in jet noise analysis is examined. The effect of peak frequency on the autocorrelation function width is removed through a temporal scaling prior to making comparisons between measurements or drawing conclusions about source characteristics. In addition, a Hilbert transform-based autocorrelation envelope helps to define(More)
Full-scale tactical aircraft noise exhibits multiple radiation lobes not seen in laboratoryscale jets. These lobes have different radiation directions yet appear to have similar, overlapping source regions. Near-field acoustical holography (NAH) source reconstructions, in conjunction with partial field decomposition (PFD) methods that produce physically(More)
Recent research efforts on nonlinear propagation from high performance jet aircraft have revealed an interesting challenge to predicting community response. This challenge focuses on receiver perception of these unique acoustical signals, which contain acoustical shocks that appear to increase their relative loudness and/or noisiness. This current finding(More)

Since its introduction, near-field acoustical holography (NAH) has been successfully used in characterizing the vibration of and radiation from a wide class of structural noise sources. In the past several years, some have begun to apply NAH to the characterization of aeroacoustic noise sources. To date, however, research has involved only axial fans and(More)
