PhD Defense: Carlos PÉREZ ARROYO – Large Eddy Simulations of a dual stream jet with shock-cells and noise emission analysis


Abstract :

This thesis deals with the shock-cell noise generated by under-expanded supersonic jets in single- and dual-stream configurations. Shock-cell noise is generated by the interaction between the turbulent structures of the shear-layer and the shock-cell system developed in the potential core of the jet. In order to study shock-cell noise, large eddy simulations adapted to aeroacoustics are carried out using high-order compact schemes that allow for a non-dissipative non-dispersive approach. The results are analyzed and compared to experimental results. In particular, an acoustic-hydrodynamic filtering is carried out in the near field in order to analyze the acoustic and hydrodynamic azimuthal modes. Moreover, a wavelet-based analysis is implemented in order to identify the relevant acoustic and hydrodynamic features of the supersonic jets.
