Flight tests at NASA Glenn demonstrated that serrations on the engine exhaust nozzle could reduce noise.
Making the most of acoustical research at NASA Glenn
Reducing noise produced by aircraft engines has
been our primary mission. What we’ve learned
in the course of our studies, however, can often
be useful for solving other acoustical problems—be
they here on Earth or in space.
We’ve provided breakthrough technology to quiet
fans, jets, and propellers which have been the dominant
sources of aircraft engine noise. We’re after
ways to make these components run more quietly without
sacrificing system performance or efficiency.
