Abstract

The ability to measure in-duct sound power levels at the exhaust flange of a gas turbine allows in situ verification of gas turbine exhaust sound power levels and verification of silencer dynamic insertion loss. The primary requirement for a measurement of sound power level is a procedure that will measure valid sound pressure levels in a high velocity, hot gas, highly turbulent turbine exhaust flow. This paper describes the current state of the development of two specialized wall mounted microphone probes: a perpendicular tube and a slit tube.
