This study presents the first step of an experimental study of the transient bleed valve noise. It was carried out on a simplified TBV geometry composed of a cylindrical inlet pipe leading to a diaphragm or a perforated disk for the purpose of generating pressure drops. Numerous diaphragms and grids have been tested in order to identify parameters that influence the acoustic radiation of the TBV and for NPR (Nozzle pressure ratio) from 1.2 to 3.6 to cover both subsonic and supersonic regimes. A large number of acoustic behaviors have been identified. For diaphragms far field acoustic spectra are dominated by mixing noise for all NPR and by shock-associated noise (screech and broadband shock associated noise (BBSAN)) when the critical value of the NPR delimiting the subsonic and supersonic behavior (NPRc = 1.89)is exceeded. For grids the mixing noise is still present but is composed of two humps. The parametric study allowed to associate the first hump to the noise of an equivalent jet having the smallest diameter encircling the grid perforations while the second is associated to the noise of the outer isolated jets. A first prediction model has thus been proposed based on this double source. Furthermore, the grids other a significant noise reduction in the audible range with respect to a diaphragm of the same cross-section by shifting the radiation towards the high frequencies. The noise associated with supersonic phenomena (screech and BBSAN) are also strongly reduced and even suppressed in most of the tested cases.
