This research investigates the infrared signature of the exhaust plume ejected from a microturbine engine. Circular and square nozzles are designed and tested to study their effects on the resultant infrared signature of the plume. A microturbine engine is operated under steady conditions with a kerosene added lubricant oil as a fuel. The measurements of the infrared signature are conducted using a spectroradiometer. Blackbody radiance is also measured at an arbitrary temperature and compared to theoretical values to validate the reference and to calibrate the raw spectrum. The infrared signatures emitted from the plume are measured at three measurement locations along the plume for two nozzle configurations. The results are grouped into sub-bands to examine and discuss their specific spectral characteristics. The infrared signatures are shown to decrease as the distance from the nozzle exit increases, which is attributed to the hot exhaust plume mixing with ambient air. The degree to which the signature is reduced at the different the measurement locations was dependent on the sub-band. Comparison of the results shows that the infrared signature of the square nozzle is lower than that of the circular nozzle in specific bands.
