BR715 Start-up Noises

Sun May 13, 2012 4:44 am

Hello,

I am oblivious as to what the noises are when a BR715 FIRST Starts. It sounds like card spokes in a bicycle as it slowly starts up. I never notice this on any other engine.

Can ANYBODY please help me figure out what that sound is, and why it is so noisy at first?

It starts at around 0:30. Do any other High-Bypass Turbofans make that noise, or is it specific to the BR700 series?

If you are referring to the loud buzzing sound as the engine starts, that's more than likely coming from inside the cabin. Could be almost anything, perhaps a loose tray table latch or some other plastic fitting vibrating in harmony with the engine. Hard to tell, but it sounds like it's coming from inside, not out.

In-trail spacing is a team effort.

It may just be an artifact in the recording caused by the vibration....just a thought.

To me, it definitely appears to be some cabin fixture rattling. It's a plasticky sound, so it would strike me as a cabin ceiling or sidewall panel, overhead bin, tray table, seat, etc.
B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

Sounds like the inner plasic window.
I don't understand everything I don't know about this.

Thanks guys. May I ask, and possibly get some answers as to why it does this on the 717 only? DC9s or MD80s don't do it, and I can't recall if the MD-90 did it.

I've never heard it on the 717. Heard it on the L1011 a couple of times. I've heard the 1011 do it windows in a building.

The 717 engine and the D9/MD engines are drastically different.


The 715 can have a very deep growl when getting started.. sometimes more noticeable than others. The rattling sounded like a vibration in the cabin.

Yup, it's interior stuff.
The BR715 does have some very distinctive startup noises, though... I always thought the thing sounded like someone filled the oil reservoir with bee-bees.
