Small, well-timed disturbances added to uncontrolled turbulent jet result in quiet, controlled jet.

Small, well-timed disturbances added to an uncontrolled Mach 1.3 turbulent jet (left) result in the quieter, controlled jet (right). Though only subtly different, the controlled jet is producing 30 percent less noise as visualized by the black-and-white contours of dilatation, a measure of air's compression rate. The sound-generating turbulence, as indicated by the vorticity, is shown as color.
