 Abstract
The effects of geometric parameters (stack position, stack length, resonator tube length) and varying input power over acoustic energy output were investigated. The acoustic laser kit (Garret 2000) was used for the construction of TA lasers. A series of sound pressure level measurements in different orientations did not differ significantly confirming that the sound wave generated could be assumed as a spherical wave. An increase in acoustic pressure was recorded with respective increase in input power, stack and resonator tube lengths owing to their relative influence over heat transfer rate and critical temperature gradient across the stack.
