- The development of an analytical model, an aircraft noise prediction computer program, to estimate the shielding of one jet by an adjacent jet in a twin jet configuration, is discussed. Noise estimations included consideration not only of noise sources on the aircraft, but also of the propagation path between source and receiver. A three-dimensional case is considered in which noise source is a discrete frequency point source at rest with respect to the jet axis. The shielding jet is assumed to be a cylinder of heated flow in which the temperature and flow velocity profiles are constant across the jet. The effect on shielding of the orientation of the emitting jet with respect to the shielding jet was investigated. Forward and backward scattering phenomena as well as the influence of jet flow speed were also investigated.
