Abstract: Screech and crackle are investigated by far-field acoustic measurements and visualizations of a cold jet fromaMach 2 convergent-divergent nozzle operated over-expanded, fully expanded, and under-expanded. The skewness of the sampled far-field pressure frequency distribution is evaluated at polar angles below 90°. It is found that skewness alone is insufficient for singling out crackling noise, however, a better characterization is obtained by jointly considering the skewness of the acoustic pressure time derivative. New evidence is provided of crackle and screech being competitive mechanisms over the nozzle pressure ratio range 4:3 to 10. These new physical insights advance the current understanding of high-speed jet aeroacoustics, towards enabling sustainable airport operations of supersonic civil aircraft.
