Wave cancellation properties of a splitter-plate porous wall configuration
The wave cancellation properties of an inclined-hole porous wall are examined for the case where each hole has a splitter plate designed for edgetone noise attenuation. Wave cancellation is ascertained by comparing measured cone/cylinder surface pressure signatures with those measured in the very low blockage tests carried out in the Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) 16-ft wind tunnel, for a range of wall porosity settings, over a Mach number range of 1.0-1.4. In general, the present data show that low wall interference can be obtained. The optimum porosity settings are distinctly lower than those found for the AEDC 4-ft wind tunnel.
