INVESTIGATION OF NOISE FROM FULL-SCALE HIGH BYPASS ENGINE AND BLOWN FLAP SYSTEM 740467

A summary is presented of an acoustic test program for investigating engine noise suppression and jet/flap interaction noise associated with an EBF STOL powered lift system. A highly suppressed TF-34 engine and EBF wing were used in the investigation. The engine was suppressed 21 PndB to a level of 94 PndB. An UTW powered lift system was tested with conventional, mixer, and decayer-type nozzles. The configuration with velocity decayer nozzle and acoustically treated shroud had the lowest noise (98 PndB). An OTW configuration with non-decayer nozzle was about 10 dB quieter than the corresponding UTW system. UTW and OTW noise data are compared with scale model correlations.
