Predicated on simplistic models of the fan flow and geometry, V072 has been proven useful in studying rotor/stator interaction tone noise. When you need to design a low-noise fan stage, tone noise level predictions from V072 can help you make smart choices for such important design parameters as blade and vane counts, rotor-stator spacing, and stator vane sweep and lean. When you’re after quick noise estimates early in the design cycle, V072 may be your tool of choice.
