Wave Propagation on Turbulent Jets

Thwaites, S.; Fletcher, Neville H.


Results of experiments involving the propagation of acoustically generated waves on turbulent plane jets are presented. The jets are produced by a perspex reconstruction of an organ pipe flue and their behaviour is shown to conform to the predictions of similarity and self-preservation; i.e. the jet velocity V"' x-1/2 and the jet-width is proportional to x, where xis the distance from the slit. Thus they are fully turbulent and, as a consequence, well behaved and reproducible. The measured...[Show more]
