Static engine run-up noise measurements have been made on the F-22 Raptor at low and high power settings. At afterburner, the propagation measurements reveal significant evidence of nonlinearity in that there is much greater high-frequency energy than is predicted by linear theory. The measurements have been compared against the results of a nonlinear numerical model based on the generalized Mendousse-Burgers equation. Although the model simplifies the propagation environment in that it neglects ground effects and atmospheric variability, agreement between the measured and nonlinearly predicted spectra is quite favorable. This comparison demonstrates that nonlinear effects can play a significant role in the propagation of high-amplitude noise and that prediction of these effects ts possible with this type of numerical model.
