OUTLOOK FOR SIMULATION OF FORWARD FLIGHT EFFECTS ON AIRCRAFT NOISE

This paper offers a wide-ranging examination of the fundamental issues behind recent efforts to devise means by which forward flight effects on aircraft noise may be simulated in ground-based facilities. Theoretical predictions of flight effects for simple configurations are noted, the advantages and disadvantages of various types of simulation facility are set out, and the features of possible noise sources and propagation mechanisms are tabulated. Opinions are then given as to how these sources and mechanisms may best be simulated, and the paper concludes with both general and very specific recommendations for future experimental and theoretical work.
