Oscillating Reed Valves - An Experimental Study

Tarnopolsky, Alex Z; Fletcher, Neville H.; Lai, J C S


The results of experiments on the threshold behavior and large-amplitude oscillation of 'outward-swinging door' vibrating flap valves in an air environment are reported and compared with the predictions of a simple nonlinear theory that parametrizes aerodynamic effects by means of a simple damping coefficient together with a contraction coefficient for the flow. The agreement is acceptably good for the threshold blowing pressure for valve oscillation, the large-signal vibration amplitude, the...[Show more]
