报告题目：On the usage of theLattice-Boltzmann method for aircraft and rotorcraft aeroacoustics: fromfundamental research to engineering deployment
The present seminar introduces the Lattice-Boltzmann Method (LBM) inthe framework of aerospace engineering, with a particular focus on someaeroacoustic applications. In the first part of the seminar, benchmark studiesare presented in the field of airframe, aero-engine and helicopter blade-vortexinteraction noise. The scalability of the computational model for full aircraftnoise simulations is discussed in relation with the ultimate goal of integratingCFD/CAA simulations in the process of aircraft noise certification. The secondpart of the seminar is focused on the usage of LBM simulations to investigate,at a more fundamental level, the mechanism of aeroacoustic resonance occurringbetween two facing annular cavities. This phenomenon has been initiallyobserved in the framework of code benchmarking for aircraft landing gear noise,and has been successively investigated by performing a geometrical parametricstudy. The analysis has revealed that a retroaction mechanism can take placebetween shear-layer vortical fluctuations and a combination of round cavitymodes and cross-flow acoustic modes. The properties of the modes have beenelucidated by filtering the unsteady flow in narrow bands around the tonalfrequencies and investigating the azimuthal structure of the fluctuation field.
