On turbojet engines and in the hot stream of turbofan engines, the air leaving the exhaust can approach Mach 1 at takeoff power (Mach 1 is the ideal). The air leaving the by-pass never gets near Mach 1; that is one of the reason hi-pass ratio turbo-fans are so much quieter than turbojets. The tips of high by-pass ratio engines can get to Mach 1 are take-off, you can hear the sound if you know what to expect.

>>I'm not so positive about the fact that the speed of the bypass is sonic at the exhaust. Given the relatively low compression through the fan, I would say the speed is only subsonic (high subsonic).<<
I can't find any info on jet blast in the B757 MM, but the A300 MM, Chapter
09-21-00-0 contains charts with the following data:
Take Off Power, 60 feet aft of Fan Nozzle Exit = 400 Knots (741 Km/Hr)
Take Off Power, 240 feet aft = 100 Knots (185 Km/Hr)
Take Off Power, 400 feet aft = 50 Knots (93 Km/Hr)
I'll try to scan the charts at home and post them.

The reason for this is simple. A turbine running between two critical cross sections is running at a totally contant pressure ratio (at least when running above a certain thrust setting like during cruise, climb and takeoff), and can therefore be highly optimized for that pressure ratio. A compressor has a variety of different inlet pressures, velocities and temperatures which it has to work with, thats one of the reason why compressors have effiencies of 'only' about 85% to 90%, whereas latest generation turbines (running on next-generation engines) are around 97% or 98%.
For the fan stream, I think that with a high cruise speed, the exhaust velocity can be Mach 1 also, remember that the inlet Mach number is already around M 0.6 and cruise speed of a 747SP can be around 0.92. one should also consider, that if the Mach numbers for both core and bypass a 1.00, the velocity of the core can be easily 40 or 50% higher, usually around 500 meters / second
Exhaust mach number for a civil aerospace engine can never exceed Mach 1, since the nozzles cannot accelerate the steam further than Mach 1.
P.S. Please excuse my crappy engieering english, hope it was understandible

I'd also like to know what the temperatures are of the exhaust gas at differant distances behind the a/c and differant engines. If anyone has this info, could you e-mail it to me or post it, I'd like it for a kind of project I have in mind.
