I don't know if I should be embarrassed or proud to state that I understood almost all of it. I'm a career aircraft engine engineer. As such, I was disappointed to read all of that to finally learn that the sound is reduced by a miniscule 6 dB. That would be a perceptible reduction in the roar of the engine, but not nearly enough to allow aircraft to take off over residential corridors without complaints.
