The Application of Numerical Simulation Technology in the External Aerodynamic Noise Field of High-Speed Train
This paper utilized the Boundary Element Method (BEM) combined with the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) based on Lighthill’s analogy in the high-speed train model, and converted the fluctuating flow pressure near the vehicle’s surface into the dipole source boundary condition in acoustics grid, eventually succeeded in completing the numerical simulation of aerodynamic noise field outside the high-speed train by introducing the dipole source boundary condition into the train BEM model. The results show that the main aerodynamic noise controlling area is 15-20 meters away from the track center line in the horizontal direction, and the Sound Press Level (SPL) is 63-72dB.
