Propagation and radiation of sound from flanged circular ducts with circumferentially varying wall admittances, II: Finite ducts with sources
The radiation of sound from a flanged duct system containing various hard-walled pressure sources and a finite length of non-uniformly lined duct is considered. Reflection coefficients, transmission losses and the directivity of the radiated field are evaluated. Direct comparisons between the results for the non-uniformly lined ducts, a uniformly lined duct and a hard-walled duct are made for fixed values of admittance, liner length and source distributions. Several interesting wave scattering characteristics which relate to the design of aircraft turbofan inlet liners are uncovered.
