In the collection and analysis of high-amplitude jet noise data for nonlinear acoustic propagation, both model-scale and full-scale measurements have limitations. Model-scale measurements performed in anechoic facilities are usually limited by transducer and data acquisition system bandwidths and maximum propagation distance. The accuracy of fullscale measurements performed outdoors is reduced by ground reflections and atmospheric effects. This paper describes the use of two nonlinearity indicators as complementary to ordinary spectral analysis of jet noise propagation data. The first indicator is based on an ensemble-averaged version of the generalized Burgers equation. The second indicator is the bicoherence, which is a normalized version of the bispectral density. These indicators are applied to Mach-0.85 and Mach-2.0 unheated jet noise data collected at the National Center for Physical Acoustics. Specifically, the indicators are used to separate geometric near-field effects from nonlinear propagation effects for the Mach-2.0 data, which cannot be done conclusively using comparisons of power spectral densities alone.
