Abstract

Being able to predict shipborne noise is of significant importance to international maritime community. Porous Ffowcs-Williams Hawkings acoustic analogy is used with cavitation model by Sauer & Schnerr in order to predict the noise signature of the Potsdam Propeller operating in open water. The radiation pattern is shown to be predominantly affected by a dipole source, in addition to less prominent sources at the propeller plane and in the wake. It is shown that the predicted sound pressure levels depend on the choice of the control surface and grid density. The unsteady RANS method is shown to be capable of capturing the blade harmonic noise components but lacks the ability to deal with the broadband part of the noise spectrum, both cavitation and turbulence induced, if no additional modelling is used.
