Over the last few decades, the bypass ratio and nacelle diameter of modern turbofans have been increasing to achieve higher efficiencies. This trend has forced the underwing-mounted engines to be coupled more closely to the wing surface and the flap system, which significantly enhances the low-frequency noise, known as jet installation noise ...

This work presents an experimental and analytical investigation of unsteady loading of a low Reynolds number propeller and its relation to aeroacoustics. The propeller is positioned at an angle of attack with respect to the freestream which causes a variation in loading along the azimuth. The propeller is operated at 4000 RPM with an advance...

Permeable trailing edges are experimentally investigated in this thesis as a mean tomitigate aeroacoustic noise. The first part of the study is devoted to deciphering themechanisms of noise generation involved in these devices. To this aim, trailing-edge inserts are manufactured employing commercially-produced open-cell metallic foams with...

The interaction of an airfoil with incident turbulence is an important source of aerodynamic noise in numerous applications, such as turbofan engines, cooling systems for automotive and construction industries, high-lift devices on aircraft wings, and landing gear systems. In these instances, turbulence is generally produced by elements that are...

The landing gear system is the dominant airframe noise source for most modern commercial aircraft during approach. This manuscript reports the results from the ALLEGRA (Advanced Low Noise Landing (Main and Nose) Gear for Regional Aircraft) project. This project assessed the performance of several highly realistic low–noise technologies (LNTs)...

Experimental and numerical results of a propeller of 0.3 m diameter operated at 5000 RPM and axial velocity ranging from 0 to 20 m/s and advance ratio ranging from 0 to 0.8 are presented as a preliminary step towards the definition of a benchmark configuration for low Reynolds number propeller aeroacoustics. The corresponding rotational tip...

This paper explores the advantages of combining asynchronous microphone array measurements for acoustic source mapping in two and three–dimensional applications. Four different approaches are considered, three consisting of the combination of the source maps (arithmetic mean, geometric mean, and minimum value), and a fourth one obtained by...

This paper investigates the application of flow-permeable materials as a solution for reducing jet-installation noise. Experiments are carried out with a flat plate placed in the near field of a single-stream subsonic jet. The flat plate is modular and the solid surface near the trailing edge can be replaced with different flow-permeable...

Abstract: The flow field on solid and porous airfoils subjected to turbulence shed by an upstream cylindrical rod and the corresponding far-field noise radiations are studied through particle image velocimetry (PIV) and microphone measurements, respectively. Three different Reynolds numbers based on the rod diameter are considered in a range...

Lattice Boltzmann simulations were carried out to investigate the noise mitigation mechanisms of a 3-D printed porous trailing-edge insert, elucidating the link between noise reduction and material permeability. The porous insert is based on a unit cell resembling a lattice of diamond atoms. It replaces the last 20 % chord of a NACA 0018 at...

Aeroacoustic measurements performed by flush-mounted microphone arrays on the walls of closed-section wind tunnels are contaminated by the hydrodynamic pressure fluctuations of the wall's boundary layer. This study evaluates three different microphone cavity geometries for mitigating this issue. Their improvement to the signal-to-noise ratio ...

The newly refurbished vertical tunnel (V-tunnel) at Delft University of Technology has been redesigned as a state-of-the-art facility for research in aeroacoustics (A-tunnel), as well as fundamental studies in laminar-turbulent transition and flow control. This manuscript focuses on the design and refurbishment aspects of the facility,...

Over the past decades, numerous methods have been used to study acoustic liners through their impedance, of which numerical methods are of particular interest. Despite their advantages, numerical methods are bounded by certain drawbacks. One such drawback stems from the need to accurately discretize the liner geometry, which can lead to large...

Ducted Wind Turbines (DWTs) can be used for energy harvesting in urban areas where non-uniform inflows might be the cause of aerodynamic and acoustic performance degradation. For this reason, an aerodynamic and aeroacoustic analysis of DWTs in yawed inflow condition is performed for two duct geometries: a baseline commercial DWT model, DonQi®...

Lattice-Boltzmann Very-Large-Eddy Simulations of two Diffuser-Augmented Wind Turbines are carried out to investigate the effect of the tip-clearance (TC) ratio on both the flow field and the far-field noise. The DonQi® wind turbine, a three blades ducted rotor with nominal TC of 2.5%, is chosen as reference test case. The second configuration...

Ducted Wind Turbines (DWTs) are one of the many concepts that have been proposed to improve the energy extraction from wind in comparison to bare wind turbines. In reviewing the DWT studies, investigations based on the combined use of theoretical, computational, and experimental techniques have been presented. Although indicated in these studies...

In this paper, the performance of four acoustic imaging methods: conventional frequency domain beamforming (CFDBF), functional beamforming (FUNBF), enhanced high resolution CLEAN–SC (EHR–CLEAN–SC) and generalized inverse beamforming (GIBF), is investigated in terms of accuracy and variability. Three experimental test cases are considered: 1)...

Noise is a major issue in Urban Air Mobility vehicles, especially due to its operation in the urban environment. One of the major sources of noise is the rotor, and thus, there is a need to optimize the rotor design for aerodynamics and aeroacoustics. A possible technological solution is represented by Co-rotating rotors (i.e., two rotors...

Aim of this paper is to investigate the effects of the turbulent flow developing over a fuselage on fan noise for BLI embedded propulsion systems. Such configurations can suffer from inlet flow distortions and ingestion of turbulence at the fan plane with consequent impact on both broadband and tonal fan noise. The analysis is performed on a...
