The pulse energy is transferred along the preloaded, initially contacting region at an even more extremely high supershear speed with respect to the acoustically more compliant material 2 (V/[([V.sub.s]).sub.2] > 1), and as a consequence, a strong, energy concentrated Mach wave with high-frequency components is produced that propagates from the contacting region into the material 2.10) Note that the pulse propagation speed with respect to the acoustically stiffer material 1 is subsonic also in this case but the same speed corresponds to a supershear one with respect to the material 2.
The strong disturbances cleave into an oblique shock wave to the free stream and oblique shock is stronger than the Mach wave (i.e.) fig.
Mixing secondary air with the primary exhaust reduces the velocity of the faster of the flows so Mach wave radiation can be reduced by surrounding the primary jet with secondary flow so that the primary eddies become subsonic with respect to the secondary flow, while ensuring that the secondary eddies are subsonic.
