21.4.1 Enabling the Broadband Noise Source Models

To enable the broadband noise sources models, select Broadband Noise Sources in the Acoustics Model panel (Figure  21.4.1).

Setting Model Constants

Under Model Constants in the Acoustics Model panel, specify the relevant acoustic parameters and constants used by the model. See Section  21.3.1 for the definitions of Far-Field Density and Far-Field Sound Speed.

Reference Acoustic Power   (for example, $P_{\rm ref}$ in Equation  21.2-13) is used to compute the acoustic power outputs in decibels (dB). The default value is $10^{-12}$. Note that the units for the reference acoustic power will be different in 2D ( $W/m^2$) and 3D ( $W/m^3$) cases.

Number of Realizations   is the number of samples used in the SNGR to compute the averaged source terms of LEE and Lilley's equations. The default value is 200.

Number of Fourier Modes   ( $N$ in Equation  21.2-33) is the number of the Fourier modes used to compute the turbulent velocity field and its derivatives. The turbulent velocity field is then used to compute the LEE and Lilley's source terms. The default value is 50.
