Abstract

In this paper the airframe noise of civil transport aircraft is numerically evaluated and compared with measurements taken in some european airports with the target of separating the airframe contribution from other noise contributions effective on a typical aircraft. The attention has been focused on airframe noise since it sets a lower limit below whichever reduction of noise generated by engine have no significant effect on the overall noise level perceived by an observer and due to the aircraft flyover. The intensity of airframe noise depends on the aircraft configuration: during the cruise the aircraft exhibit an aerodynamically 'clean' configuration that produces less noise than the configuration assumed by the aircraft during landing and take-off, that usually is referred as 'dirty' one. The configuration with slats extended, flaps down and undercarriage lowered is more noisy than the clean configuration. In this paper the results of numerical simulations performed on common operating aircraft are presented: these simulations allow the contribution breakdown and, therefore, the classification of the most noisy airframe components for the different approach and take-off configurations.
