This paper presents the results of a scaled aero acoustic test that modeled a side branch resonance observed in the residual heat removal suction line of a large pressurized water reactor. Resolution of the acoustic resonance was sought by detuning the eddy shedding frequency from the fundamental side branch acoustic mode. The specific physical modifications and their ability to detune the coupled system are presented.
