About the book
Flow generated noise is encountered in many industrial products and devices such as aircraft, automobiles, wind turbines, fans, etc. just to name a few. Because of intensive research for more than fifty years since the seminal work of Lighthill, it has now not only become possible to identify the acoustic sources that are responsible for flow generated noise in many industrial as well as daily use products but also to develop strategies for manipulation and control of noise. The subject of “Aeroacoustics” encompasses the theoretical, computational, experimental and design methods related to flow generated noise. With enormous advancements in computing power, “Computational Aeroacoustics (CAA)” has now become a tool of choice to investigate flow generated noise and to analyze potential approaches for its reduction/mitigation. The goal of this book is to invite leading researchers around the world to contribute to the latest developments/progress in the building blocks of CAA, namely the physical models and governing equations, numerical algorithms, radiation, outflow and wall boundary conditions, etc. and in the application of CAA codes to complex industrial systems such as aircrafts, turbomachinery, wind turbines, automobiles etc. This book will be very valuable to researchers as well as practitioners who are interested in this field.
