Numerical simulations are presented for the unsteady flow and noise radiation of high speed circular jets. The predictions are based on solutions of the nonlinear disturbance equations. Only the large-scale fluctuations are resolved. The effects of the small scales are parameterized using a subgrid-scale model. The radiated noise is predicted using both a direct simulation and a Ffowcs Williams-Hawkings method. Comparisons are made with experimental measurements. Previously reported overpredictions are considerably reduced. The improvements due to changes in the prescription of inflow conditions and the addition of a dynamic subgrid-scale model are discussed. Preliminary results are presented for a subsonic heated operating condition.
