NCPA Propane Burner Rig and Single Jet Nozzle

Bernard J. Jansen

(662) 915-7885

Senior Research and Development Engineer, Aeroacoustics, National Center for Physical Acoustics

M.S., Aerospace Engineering, Notre Dame, 1982

Mr. Jansen joined the NCPA in 1999.  He directs and supports the design, construction, and operation of Aeroacoustic facilities at the NCPA. He has been participating in Aeroacoustic research projects for jet noise reduction, weapons bay pressure fluctuation reduction and store separation enhancement. These efforts have included both model scale experimentation and flight-testing at full scale.  Other projects have included the development of an after-burning nozzle to create a reacting external flow useful for the development of non-intrusive measurement techniques for high-temperature flows.  Mr. Jansen had previously spent 13 years at the NASA Langley Research Center’s Jet Noise Laboratory and 14 x 22 Wind Tunnel.  He is a member of the AIAA.


Mr. Jansen has over 25 years of experience in Aeroacoustics research and development including control system development, measurement system development, full-scale measurement systems and analyses, and prototype design.  He has expertise in all forms of fluid dynamic and aeroacoustic measurements and teaches Experimental Methods in Aeroacoustics for the Aeroacoustics graduate program at the NCPA.
