Jet noise reduction is essential for environmentally-friendly civil transport. Since jet noise becomes very intense in the case of supersonic aircraft, noise reduction is crucial topic for the realization of next-generation supersonic transport.
In the present study, experimental investigations were performed to clarify the effect of microjet injection on supersonic jet noise and flow field. The experiments were focused on supersonic jet with Mach number up to 1.47, which was generated from a rectangular nozzle with high aspect ratio.
Far-field acoustic measurements were conducted for widely ranged microjet conditions to understand the influence of the condition on characteristics of supersonic jet noise and flow field. For understanding the unsteady behavior of the flow field and the relation with noise reduction, flow field visualization was performed with schlieren technique using a high-speed camera.
