DD AND CG EXHAUST
These ship classes have replaced the outmoted IR
suppression system with the boundary layer infared
suppression system (BLISS), figure 2-17. Figure 2-15
shows a cross-sectional view of the DD exhaust duct
A single vane type of silencer is located in the
center of the exhaust duct. It has sound-deadening
material encased in perforated stainless steel sheet.
This material, along with the duct wall insulation,
reduces the sound level enough to meet acceptable
airborne noise requirements.
Figure 2-16 is a cross-sectional view of an
eductor. The exhaust eductors are located at the
top of each propulsion engine exhaust duct. It is
positioned so the gas flow from the exhaust
nozzle will draw outside air into the exhaust stream to
reduce exhaust gas temperature.
