The sources of noise which emanate from the exhaust of a gas turbine engine are discussed. The most important of these are considered to be associated with the combustion system, the turbine, the exhaust system, obstructions, and the turbulence/noise interaction with the jet structure. Also considered is the jet mixing noise due to single and coaxial streams. Wherever possible, prediction methods for these sources are given and reviewed. Reflections from the ground are also reviewed. Finally, the effects of flight or forward speed on these noise sources are considered.
