VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday beginning at noon on Wednesday, November 22, through Friday, November 24, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience, and happy holidays!
Acoustic waves in ducts with sinusoidally perturbed walls and mean flow
An analysis is presented of the propagation of acoustic waves in a hard-walled duct with sinusoidally perturbed walls and carrying mean flow. The results show that resonance occurs whenever the wavenumber of the wall undulations is approximately equal to the difference between the wavenumber of any two propagating modes. It is shown that neither of the resonating modes could exist in the duct without strongly exciting the other resonating mode.
