Computational Aeroacoustics Based on a Helmholtz-Hodge Decomposition

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using existing aeroacoustic wave equations, we propose a general hybrid aeroacoustic method, based on compressible flow data. By applying the Helmholtz-
Hodge decomposition on arbitrary domains, we extract the incompressible projection (non-radiating base flow) of the compressible flow velocity by solving the vector valued curl- curl equation with the vorticity as forcing term. The resulting vortical flow part is used for computing the acoustic source term. This method maintains the favorable properties of the hybrid aeroacoustic method, while still considering acoustic feedback on the flow field.
