The results of a series of experiments, performed to investigate flow separation and classic lip noise and to aid in understanding aeroacoustic noise generation are presented. Several types of nozzle-lip configurations were used to study the high frequency noise generated by small regions of flow separation at the nozzle lip. These included coaxial nozzles, and circular and slot nozzles with splitter plates. The jet flow velocity was varied and far field noise was measured for all nozzle-lip geometries (coaxial and splitter plate). The effect of a velocity difference across the lip of the coaxial nozzle and the splitter plate on the far field noise was also measured. Finally, an effort was made to find means to reduce the high frequency noise caused by flow separation at the lip.
