REVIEW OF TURBOFAN-ENGINE COMBUSTION AND JET-NOISE RESEARCH AND RELATED TOPICS

In the early 1970s, internal sources of noise in jet engines were identified as being potentially strong enough to affect the levels of jet-aircraft noise at the Far Part 36 noise-certification points. These internal sources have a broadband spectrum and are not related to the rotating turbomachinery components within the engine. A review of the status of jet- and core-engine noise research was held at FAA Headquarters in the Fall of 1974. Subsequent to that status review, the FAA sponsored additional studies of combustion noise. Also, during this period, a significant study of jet noise produced by high-velocity jets was conducted under the initial sponsorship of DOT, and then of FAA. The high-velocity jet-noise study included extensive analytical and experimental investigations of jet-noise suppressors as well as studies of the effects of forward motion on jet-engine noise. In February 1977, the FAA and the DOT a second Conference at FAA Headquarters to review the status of jet- and combustion-noise research. The Conference was attended by representatives from Government and Industry and presentations were made of contracted and independent research studies. This report reviews the research findings presented at the February 1977 Jet/Combustion-Noise Research Conference as well as subsequent to the Conference through June 1979. (Author)
