Abstract

Analyses of recent F/A-18E/F military power and afterburner measurements suggest that the noise propagation is nonlinear in the far field. Spectral broadening takes place as the radiated noise propagates from IS to 150 m, the limits of the measurement range. This broadening phenomenon cannot be readily explained in terms of linear propagation effects. Calculation of a nonlinearity indicator derived by Howell and Morfey supports the assertion that nonlinear propagation effects are present. Furthermore, skewness and kurtosis calculations indicate that the noise data distributions are non-Gaussian over the propagation range at these engine settings. Finally, the measured spectra have been compared against predictions obtained with existing nonlinear spectral evolution methods. Even though the prediction results compare poorly with the actual measurements, this is attributable to limitations of the spectral evolution methods themselves.
