SOUND and FUROR THE JET NOISE SUPPRESSION AGE 570049
BEFORE an evaluation of suppressors can be made or before a sensible discussion of suppression goals can be carried on, terms, conditions, and possibilities must be understood. A five-number system for evaluating suppressors is proposed.
Methods of jet noise suppression undergoing general development today include frequency shifting, jet spreading, and jet velocity reduction.
Basic types of jet spreaders and velocity reducers are shown and ratings given. Combinations of types have resulted in increased suppression in many instances.
