    The modern trend towards high engine power and large13; aeronautical test facilities has resulted in a tremendous13; increase in the generation of noise and consequently the13; problem of noise control in aircraft and wind tunnels has13; become one of increasing importance in recent years. The13; high noise levels are not only a source of annoyance to13; people working, in the vicinity, but also in many cases cause structural damage and malfunctioning of equipment.13; In aviation and aircraft industry the people who are most affected by noise are turbo-jet manufacturers, service crews, occupants of the aircraft, N-wind tunnel operators and communities near, airports and test facilities. The high cost and effort required to provide adequate protection for these people demand a detailed study of the characteristics of various aircraft noise sources, the magnitude of the noise, the nature of the source and the effect of operating conditions on these characteristics, quot;Aerodynamic noisequot; is the noise generated as a byproduct of an unsteady turbulent airflow, or noise produced without participation of solid boundaries. Examples of sources of such noise are* air jets, boundary layers, vortices 9 wakes and related phenomena* Before embarking on a general discussion of these phenomena, some of the basic terms used in acoustic theory and measurement are defined in the next section.
