Main Article Content
Aero-acoustic characteristics of a high-speed jet with elliptical ring tabs fitted at the aft of the nozzle in diametrically opposite to the exit is experimentally investigated at a Mach Number of 1.8. The Main focus is to examine the effects of the extent of elliptical ring tabs, its position in the mixing layer and also to study the characteristics of supersonic nozzle with and without elliptical ring tabs. The elliptical ring tabs are found to produce vortices, thereby increasing the surface area of the jet, particularly in the close vicinity of the nozzle, which increases the mixing and reduces the potential core length. The overall noise levels registered along the jet edge immediately downstream of the nozzles are higher, but further downstream they are reduced in comparison with the plain baseline nozzle. A pair of dimensionally optimized elliptical ring tab placed diametrically opposite at the exit of the nozzle with blockage area of 5% without effecting the loss of thrust. The mixing enhancement caused by the tab will be studied at nozzle pressure ratio 5.75. The reduction in Sound Pressure Level (SPL) in dB is compared to that of plain nozzle.
Journal author rights
In order for Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration to publish and disseminate research articles, we need publishing rights. This is determined by a publishing agreement between the author and Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration. This agreement deals with the transfer or license of the copyright to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration and authors retain significant rights to use and share their own published articles. Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration supports the need for authors to share, disseminate and maximize the impact of their research and these rights, in Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration proprietary are defined below:
For subscription articles:
Authors transfer copyright to the publisher as part of a journal publishing agreement, but have the right to: Share their article for personal use (manuscript version); retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
For open access articles:
Authors sign an exclusive license agreement, where authors have copyright but license exclusive rights in their article to the publisher. In this case authors have the right to: share their article in the same ways permitted to third parties under the relevant user license; retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
Rights granted to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration
For both subscription and open access articles, published in proprietary titles, Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration is granted the following rights:
- The exclusive right to publish and distribute an article, and to grant rights to others, including for commercial purposes;
- For open access articles, Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration will apply the relevant third party user licence (Open access licencses) where Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration publishes the article on its online platforms;
- The right to provide the article in all forms and media so the article can be used on the latest technology even after publication;
- The authority to enforce the rights in the article, on behalf of an author, against third parties, for example in the case of plagiarism or copyright infringement.
