Due to a current trend of increasing rotational speed and power, the problem of tone noise and pressure pulsation in centrifugal ventilators becomes a more urgent issue. Often the level of tones determines noise characteristics; mainly these are blade-passing frequencies (BPF).
The broadband noise resulting from small-scale turbulent pressure pulsation in ventilators are undertaken using the method based on a representation of non-statonary motion of a compressible medium as a combination of acoustic and vortex modes.
For the analysis of the problem, the 2D code Harmony and the 3D code FlowVision are used.
