Simulation of aerodynamically generated noise propagation using the wave expansion method
2016 (English)In: 22nd AIAA/CEAS Aeroacoustics Conference, 2016Conference paper (Other academic)
A numerical method to simulate aerodynamically generated sound and its propagation is presented in this paper. The flow is solved using both analytical expressions and numer- ical methods. The aeroacoustic source terms are then defined by using the aeroacoustic analogies of Lighthill, Ffowcs-Williams and Hawkings, Powell and Howe, and are evaluated from the flow solutions. The acoustic propagation with these sources is then performed using the wave expansion method. This is a discretization method suitable for solving wave propagation through inhomogeneous potential flows. Two different cases are considered in the study, a co-rotating vortex pair and the flow around a 2D cylinder at Re=150. The fo- cus of the work presented is to show a robust introduction of aeroacoustic sources in a wave expansion acoustic propagation solution procedure. The numerical results are compared to experimental and numerical results from other studies of the same configurations.
