Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

We consider determination of the propagator within the generalized acoustic analogy for prediction of supersonic jet noise. The propagator is a tensor functional of the adjoint vector Green’s function that requires solution of the linearized Euler equations for a given mean flow. The exact form of these equations can be obtained for a spreading jet. However since high Reynolds number jets have small spread rates, ϵ < < O(1), this parameter can be exploited to formulate an asymptotic model that encompasses mean flow spatial evolution at leading order. Such a model was used by Afsar et al. (AIAA-2017-3030 for prediction of supersonic jet noise. We show the existence of an overlap between this solution (valid at low frequencies) and one based on a locally parallel (i.e. non-spreading) mean flow, valid at O(1) frequencies. It is clear that there must exist an overlap between these solutions, since the former non-parallel solution was determined at the distinguished limit where the scaled frequency Ω=ω/ϵ=O(1) was held fixed. Hence the inner equation shows that as Ω→∞, non-parallelism will be confined to a thin streamwise region of size O(Ω−1) and will, therefore, be subdominant at leading order when ΩY=Y¯=O(1).
