Analysis of extensive flyover noise data from piston engine powered propeller aeroplanes (General Aviation Aeroplanes) revealed the occurrence of - at first sight quite unexplainable - additional noise components which were, however, clearly related to propeller operation. It turns out that such "excess" propeller noise is a direct result of a nonuniform rotation of the piston engine crank- shaft which causes unsteady aerodynamic propeller blade-loadings. Associated propeller noise characteristics were determined in the framework of wind tunnel tests for a number of full-scale piston- engine/propeller combinations. The subject noise type was found most pronounced at low helical blade-tip Mach numbers and in the forward and the rear arc directions. Azimuthal noise directivity was no longer omnidirectional. Moreover, overall A-weighted propeller noise levels were found to increase by more than 5 dB as a result of such RPM-nonuniformity vs. that of a propeller.
