Harmonic generation in organ pipes, recorders, and flutes
A simplified treatment is given of the mechanism of sound production in musical instruments driven by air jets, which is sufficiently explicit that semiquantitative predictions can be made about the effects of certain variables upon the harmonic structure of the sound produced. In particular it is found that the amplitude of the even harmonics, generally, and of the second harmonic, particularly, is quite critically dependent upon the offset of the pipe lip from the symmetry plane of the jet.
