Résumé
Broadband noise radiated from airfoils has been considered as a generic problem of primary engineering and research interest along the last decades. Noise emission from turbofan engines, drones, ventilation systems and other industrial and domestic applications could be mainly characterized as broadband and airfoil turbulence-impingement noise (TIN) is its dominating contributing mechanism. The present work investigates the three-dimensionality of TIN and its mitigation by wavy leading-edge designs or porous inclusions. Experimental techniques and analytical models for the noise predictions are the main tools used for these investigations. A combination of far-field (single microphone) and near-field (spiral antenna) measurements showed consistent results with previous studies and highlighted the trailing edge noise (TEN) detrimental effect on the airfoil noise reduction performances. Results show that TIN reductions extend linearly for flat plates and exponentially for thick airfoils over a wider low-and-middle frequency range after subtracting TEN. Noise prediction tools for TIN have been validated both for straight and wavy leading edges by making use of the obtained experimental results. A flow analysis around the wavy leading edge performing tomographic and stereoscopic PIV measurements has been performed. Results are in agreement with previous works, and allow validating computational simulations in configurations similar to the present experiments. Considering simple serration designs on leading edge and trailing edge, an optimization strategy is proposed for minimizing the total noise of an airfoil. The acoustic and aerodynamic exploration of porous airfoils indicates porosity as a promising technique for the noise mitigation of thick airfoils, with potentiality similar to that of leading-edge serrations for fans and other industrial applications.
