Abstract

The unsteady flow over surface discontinuities produces high aerodynamic noise. The aim of this thesis is to study the aeroacoustics of two-dimensional rectangular cavities and to find strategies for noise reduction. Direct Numerical Simulation of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations is performed to investigate the influence of the initial condition on the oscillation modes in deep and shallow cavities. Results show that the deep cavity oscillates in shear layer regime at the second Rossiter mode regardless of the initial condition. On the other hand different initial conditions lead to a shear layer or wake mode in the shallow cavity case. A sensitivity analysis of the deep cavity is done by the use of adjoint methods. Local sinusoidal perturbations of x-momentum and density are applied to the adjoint equations. The results show a high sensitivity region to mass injection at the upstream corner. Therefore an actuator placed at the leading edge will modify the velocity fluctuations reaching the trailing edge and hence the pressure fluctuations in the far-field
