"Trailing Edge Noise Reduction by Porous Treatment using Derivative-Free Optimization"

( MPI-SWS talk in Kooperation mit dem Fachbereich Informatik)

This talk focuses on the derivative-free optimization algorithm known as Efficient Global Optimization and its application to the noise reduction caused by the blunt trailing edge of an airfoil. We compute noise levels over a range of frequencies and optimize by adjusting porosity and Darcy coefficient as design parameters.

In general, lifting bodies are used across a wide range of applications, including transportation and energy generation. They can produce unwanted noise in a variety of ways. On the topic of airfoils, the leading causes of noise are leading- and trailing edge noise. The latter occurs when the boundary layer convects turbulent sources over the trailing-edge. [1] demonstrated noise reduction via porous treatment at the trailing edge. "Porous edges and surfaces can act to reduce the correlation of a transitional or turbulent boundary layer, as well as reducing the convection velocity inside the boundary layer, which is an important determining factor for the magnitude of the scattered acoustic waves." [2]We explore this idea on the example of an airfoil with blunt trailing edge and partially porous geometry. The trailing-edge porosity is parametrized to reduce the dimension of the design space. Further, the computational costs are reduced by using an Amiet-based trailing edge noise model and a surrogate-based optimization approach.
