Development of a dynamic tool for aircraft noise reproduction

By Massimo Viscardi and Maurizio Arena


The aircraft is surely one of the most considerable invention that changed the transport-engineering field, since flying was already an ancient dream come true just a few years ago. Now it is really easy to reach many far places even if most people have no clue how flying is possible. However, as factories do, these large and faster and faster machines return a consistent amount of pollution every day. During take-off, engines reach the highest RPMs returning the most noise possible, and during landing, mobile surfaces produce a lot of aerodynamic disturbs releasing energy in the air while landing gears constantly produce drag in both circumstances. The need to be able to predict the sound emission of an acoustic source represents an extremely current engineering challenge: in particular, a numerical code that would let the user to listen noise produced by a flyover, since acoustic reports are just numerical statistics and spectrogram plots. In this paper, a numerical formulation is suggested for the prediction of the acoustic emission in the frequency domain. The main task of the project was to develop a program that makes dynamic analysis of the signal taking into account the source movement. Moreover, the simulations predicted the noise levels, thus explicitly accounting for the scattering acoustic effects of incidence and geometrical obstacles as well. Geometrical reflections and absorptions of certain frequencies depending on the material have been comprised in the model
