ERCOFTAC is proud to announce a two day course on 'Computational Aeroacoustics'.
This course is intended for researchers in industry and in academia including Ph.D. students with a good knowledge in fluid mechanics, who would like to build up or widen their knowledge in the field of aeroacoustics (modeling, computational tools and industrial applications).
It will first provide a comprehensive overview of recent insights of aeroacoustics theories (practical applications of Lighthills analogy and vortex sound, Goldsteins analogy, and coupling with instability waves).
A number of practical problems involving the coupling between CFDs results and CAA will be also thoroughly discussed (e.g. how to design a mesh for aeroacoustics simulations using large eddy simulation, inclusion of mean flow effects via hybrid formulations such as APE, presence of surfaces,...) and realistic applications performed by the instructors (aeronautics, car industry, propulsion, energy,...) will be analysed.
Moreover, advanced computational aeroacoustics methods will be presented, as well as what we can learn from the direct computation of aerodynamic noise. Specific topics reflecting participant interests will be discussed in a final round table session.
