APPLICATION OF HYBRID CFD/CAA TECHNIQUE FOR MODELING PRESSURE FLUCTUATIONS IN TRANSONIC FLOWS
Solving AeroAcoustics (CAA) problems by means of the Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) or even the Large Eddy Simulation (LES) for a large computational domain is very time consuming and cannot be applied widely for engineering purposes. In this paper in-house CFD and CAA codes are presented. The in-house CFD code is based on the LES approach whereas the CAA code is an acoustic postprocessor solving non-linearized Euler equations for fluctuating (acoustic) variables. These codes are used to solve the pressure waves generated aerodynamically by a flow over a rectangular cavity and by the vortex street behind a turbine blade. The obtained results are discussed with respect to the application of the presented numerical techniques to pressure waves modeling in steam turbine stages.
