The main objective of this thesis is to understand and predict jet noise installation effects for engines mounted below aircraft wings. This is done through a variety of empirical, analytical and computational methods. Aspects of the jet source are examined and a jet source model, suitable for determining installation effects is derived. As part of this research programme a novel and extensive set of model scale jet noise installation effects experiments were undertaken. These results are presented and analyzed in this thesis. A new semi-empirical method, which can readily predict installation effects for heated coaxial jets is presented and validated using experimental data. A new 3D ray theory jet propagation method for sources in a steady inhomogeneous moving medium is presented. This method is benched marked using an analytical solution of the Lilley equation. The 3-D method is further enhanced by combing it with realistic CFD jet velocity profiles, and bench marked using the data from the experimental programme
