Several attenuation configurations are assessed, involving the following concepts: generating streamwise vorticity, dephasing the azimuthal coherence of the jet, and reducing rigidity of the jet separation edge. By proper design, effective attenuation of the discrete frequency components of the oscillation can be achieved. For cases where there is not complete attenuation, the phase condition corresponding to maximum relative amplitude of the oscillation is maintained, the disturbance phase speed is essentially unaltered, and there is a proportional reduction in amplitude along the jet, including the initial fluctuation level at separation.
