The harmonic distortion generated when a fluid line is terminated by a nonlinear orifice characteristic is analyzed by using a perturbation method of solution. The perturbation method is shown to be representative of the true phenomenon and to give very good quantitative as well as qualitative information by comparing the results to a numerical solution of the nonlinear equations. The results presented describe the distortion phenomenon as a function of several dimensionless ratios.
