DISPERSIVE EFFECTS OF LINERS ON NONLINEAR WAVE PROPAGATION IN DUCTS

The theoretical techniques to analyze nonlinear wave propagation in lined ducts are developed. Three major problems are considered: (1) determination of the liner properties that produce strong dispersion and thereby inhibit energy exchange between harmonic components of the noise; (2) calculation of waveforms for weakly-dispersive nonlinear propagation; and (3) analysis of the nonlinear development of the amplitude of wave packets in the case of dispersive propagation.
