In this work, the open-source spectral/hp element framework Nektar++ is coupled with the Antares library to predict noise from a subsonic jet. Nektar++ uses the high-order discontinuous Galerkin method to solve the compressible Navier-Stokes equations on unstructured grids. Unresolved turbulent scales are modeled using an implicit Large Eddy Simula...
The harmonic balance method has emerged as an efficient and accurate approach for computing periodic, as well as almost periodic, solutions to nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The accuracy of the harmonic balance method can however be negatively impacted by aliasing. Aliasing occurs because Fourier coefficients of nonlinear terms in the g...
The design of noise barriers for high-speed trains is challenging due to the flow interaction between the train body and barriers. A failed design could affect the flow that in turn introduces additional aerodynamic loads to the train and generates extra noise. This study is the first investigation to numerically explore the detailed effects of noi...
The harmonic balance method is nowadays widely applied for numerically solving problems that are known to possess time-periodic solutions. Key reasons for its success are its wide range of applicability, relative ease of implementation, and computational efficiency compared to time-accurate approaches. The computational efficiency of the harmonic b...
Higher order nonreflecting blade row interfaces are today widely used for performing both steady and unsteady simulations of the flow within axial turbomachines. In this paper, a quasi-three-dimensional nonreflecting interface based on the exact, two-dimensional nonreflecting boundary condition for a single frequency and azimuthal wave number devel...
The Counter Rotating Open Rotor (CROR) powerplant is an interesting architecture for future regional aircraft propulsion since it offers higher propulsive efficiency and thereby lower fuel consumption than the conventional Turbofan engine. The noise levels generated are however potentially larger compared to a Turbofan due in part to the absence of...
A computational method for predicting turbomachinery tonal noise is presented. It is based on the Harmonic Balance method, which solves for the dominant frequencies of the flow generated by bladerow interaction. Coupling between the resolved frequencies is furthermore enabled since the Harmonic Balance method is applicable to the nonlinear Euler or...
With the ULTIMATE project five experienced research groups and four major European engine manufacturers will develop innovative propulsion systems to fulfill the SRIA 2050 key challenges. One of the most challenging targets is the 75% reduction in energy consumption and CO2-emissions. Technologies currently at TRL 3-5, cannot achieve this aim. It is estimated that around a 30% reduction must come from radical innovations now being at lower TRL. Thus, European industry needs synergetic breakthrough technologies for every part of the air transport system, including the airframe, propulsion and power. The ULTIMATE project singles out the major loss sources in a state of the art turbofan (combustor irreversibility, core exhaust heat, bypass exhaust kinetic energy). These are then used to categorize breakthrough technologies (e.g. piston topping, intercooling & exhaust heat exchangers, and advanced propulsor & integration concepts). This classification approach gives a structured way to combine and explore synergies between the technologies in the search for ultralow CO2, NOx and noise emissions. The most promising combinations of radical technologies will then be developed for a short range European and a long range intercontinental advanced tube and wing aircraft. Through the EU projects VITAL, NEWAC, DREAM, LEMCOTEC, E-BREAK and ENOVAL, the ULTIMATE partners have gained the most comprehensive experience in Europe on conception and evaluation of advanced aero engine architectures. Existing tools, knowledge and models will be used to perform optimization and evaluation against the SRIA targets to mature the technologies to TRL 2. Road maps will be set up to outline the steps to develop the technologies into products and bring them onto the market. These road maps will also provide a way forward for future European propulsion and aviation research.
