Abstract [en]

Ongoing research toward the reduction of environmental noise from aircraft is investigating the possible shielding of engine-noise sources by novel airframe configurations. To assess the noise-reduction benefits attainable from such configurations, it is necessary to develop appropriate acoustic evaluation tools. In this paper, a jet-noise-shielding- prediction methodology is described. The Tam–Auriault (“Jet Mixing Noise from Fine-Scale Turbulence,” AIAA Journal, Vol. 37, No. 2, 1999, pp. 145–153) jet-noise model with a Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes solution input, together with a Fresnel–Kirchhoff diffraction method (Fundamentals of Physical Acoustics, Wiley-Interscience, New York, 2000, pp. 472–494), is used to make isolated and shielded far-field jet-noise predictions. This methodology is employed as a sensitivity-analysis tool to establish the relative importance of the source location, spatial extent, and directivity in jet-noise-shielding predictions. Predictions have been made for a shielded single-stream Mach 0.9 jet, and compared with experimental data. Good qualitative agreement is observed, and the disagreement in the shielding levels is most likely due to underestimation of the source axial extent by the jet-noise model.
