3rd AIAA Workshop on Benchmark Problems for Airframe Noise Computations (BANC-III)

14–15 June 2014
0800–1700 hrs

Technical Program at AVIATION 2013

Synopsis

The BANC-III Workshop will include presentations and discussions related to coordinated computational and experimental investigations of a common set of airframe noise configurations (problem categories 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 described here.) This workshop is jointly sponsored by the Aeroacoustics and Fluid Dynamics Technical Committees of AIAA and is open to all interested participants. Computation of the BANC-III configurations is not required to attend the workshop.

Objectives

  • Provide a forum for a thorough assessment of simulation-based noise-prediction tools in the context of airframe configurations, including both near-field unsteady flow and the acoustic radiation generated via the interaction of this flow with solid surfaces.
  • Identify current gaps in physical understanding, experimental databases, and prediction capability for the major sources of airframe noise.
  • Help determine best practices and accelerate the development of benchmark quality datasets.
  • Promote coordinated studies of common configurations for maximum impact on the current state of the art in the understanding and prediction of airframe noise.

Expected Outcomes

  • Summary assessments of simulation-based noise-prediction tools for major sources of airframe noise, including current gaps in physical understanding, experimental databases, and prediction capability for the major sources of airframe noise
  • Technical presentations describing best practices for aeroacoustic simulations of airframe noise problems
  • Quality measurement data sets for canonical airframe noise configurations
  • Plans for future coordinated investigations of airframe noise problems

All participants must submit a Notice of Intent to receive crucial communications related to the workshop.
