Abstract

This paper investigates the accuracy of implicit Large Eddy Simulation in the prediction of acoustic phenomena associated with pressure fluctuations within a supersonic turbulent boundary layer. We assess the accuracy of implicit Large Eddy Simulation against Direct Numerical Simulation and experiments for attached turbulent supersonic flow with zero-pressure gradient, and further analyze and discuss the effects of turbulent boundary layer pressure fluctuations on acoustic loading both at the high and low frequency regimes. The results of high-order variants of the simulations show good agreement with theoretical models, experiments, as well as previously published Direct Numerical Simulations.
