To investigate the sources of acoustic radiation from a gas turbine exhaust, a one-seventh scale model has been constructed. The model geometrically scales the flow path downstream of the rotating parts including support struts and turning vanes. A discussion and comparison of different kinds of aerodynamic and acoustic scaling techniques are given. The effect of the temperature ratio between model and prototype is found to be an important parameter in comparing acoustical data.
