AYBAY, ORHAN (2010) TIME-CONSERVATIVE FINITE-VOLUME METHOD WITH LARGE-EDDY SIMULATION FOR COMPUTATIONAL AEROACOUSTICS. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.
This thesis presents a time-conservative finite-volume method based on a modern flow simulation technique developed by the author. Its applicability to technically relevant aeroacoustic applications is demonstrated. The time-conservative finite-volume method has unique features and advantages in comparison to traditional methods.
The main objectives of this study are to develop an advanced, high-resolution, low dissipation second-order
scheme and to simulate the near acoustic field with similar accuracy as higher-order (e.g., 4th-order, 6th-order, etc.) numerical schemes. Other aims are to use a large-eddy simulation (LES) technique to directly predict the near-field aerodynamic noise and to simulate the turbulent flow field with high-fidelity.
A three-dimensional parallel LES solver is developed in order to investigate the near acoustic field. Several cases
with wide ranges of flow regimes have been computed to validate and verify the accuracy of the method as well as to demonstrate its effectiveness. The time-conservative finite-volume method is efficient and yields high-resolution results with low dissipation similar
to higher-order conventional schemes. The time-conservative finite-volume approach offers an accurate way to compute the most relevant frequencies and acoustic modes for aeroacoustic calculations. Its accuracy was checked by solving demonstrative test cases including the prediction of narrowband and broadband cavity acoustics as well as the screech tones and the broadband shock-associated noise of a planar supersonic jet.
The second-order time-conservative finite-volume method can solve practically relevant aeroacoustic problems with high-fidelity which is an exception to the conventional second-order schemes commonly regarded as inadequate for
computational aeroacoustic (CAA) applications.
