Put abstract text here. A serial of experiments were conducted to study the noise radiated from a series connected nozzle pair. The experiment results are presented in this paper. This nozzle pair consists of two nozzles, one is called source nozzle, and the other is a secondary nozzle. In these experiments, the structure of source nozzle was fixed while that of secondary nozzle was changeable. The source nozzle is mounted on a pressure chamber which is connected to an air compressor. A steel tube is fixed at the tail of source nozzle. The secondary nozzle is connected to the other end of the tube. Throat size of secondary nozzle is larger then that of source nozzle. 15 types of nozzles with different expansion ratio, length of expand segment, and throat structure were used as the secondary nozzle. Jet noise pressure of these nozzle pairs was measured by 40AF Free Field Microphone. The frequency spectrum of jet noise from source nozzle with steel tube under different chamber pressures was calculated. The pressure range is from 0.1 to 1.2 MPa. This result is compared with those spectrums of nozzle pair with different secondary nozzle under different chamber pressures. The trend of peak frequency shifts for different nozzle pair and different chamber pressure is presented in this paper. The secondary nozzles make frequency peak shift from the source nozzle, especially in low frequency band. Different structure of secondary nozzle has different influence on the frequency characteristics of jet noise. Length of expand segment has greater influence on low frequency peak than other two factors. Joint time-frequency analysis is also used in analyze the change of frequency spectrum during throat size decreased under fixed chamber pressure and various spectrograms are also presented. In low frequency band, frequency peak remains during the change of source nozzle throat size. But in higher frequency band, the frequency peak shifts from low frequency to higher ones as the throat size decreases.
