By Peter E. Davies, Anthony M. Thornborough

Few airplanes have remained in lively provider so long as the B-52, that is slated to stick in operation throughout the flip of the century. initially designed as a long-range nuclear bomber, the B-52 has obvious carrier in Vietnam and the Gulf battle, the place its lengthy variety and large bomb load have been complemented by way of the facility to deal with air-launched missiles. The authors supply a number of debts from B-52 pilots and insurance of this remarkable airplane's layout and carrying on with improvement. hunted images aid record the Stratofortress' unique occupation.

The jet issue from a circular nozzle with generators of longitudinal vortices. 3]. Fig. 24 presents the change in the average velocity and longitudinal velocity pulsations along the jet axis. The corresponding curves for a circular nozzle without voftex generators are shown for comparison purposes.

0 0 0 0 decreases with decreasing rp and the contribution of low-frequency components correspondenty increases. In addition, the maximum becomes more and more distinct in the noise spectra for such a change of the noise spectral composition. The most perceptible change of the noise spectra is observed for small values of the angle rp = 30°- 45°. The pressure pulsations do not coincide in phase with the velocity pulsations near the border of the turbulent jet mixing area. e. the distance between the sound source and receiver should be large relative to the source sizes and the sound wavelength, are not fulfilled.

Consider the simplest schemes of single-frequency acoustical excitation of jets. The jet longitudinal (downstream and upstream), transverse and radial irradiation (Fig. 1) are recognized. For a jet under longitudinal and radial excitation by sound waves, axisymmetric periodic al vortex rings are generated at the nozzle edge and carried away downstream. 42]. They are more intensive at the emitter side and less intensive at the opposite side. This A. S. , Acoustic Control of Turbulent Jets © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2004 34 CHAPTER 2.
