Development of jet noise prediction codes is multifaceted. Since JeNo predicts jet noise using Lilley’s Acoustic Analogy and the mean flow solutions from a Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) code, accurate acoustic predictions hinge on accurate aerodynamic predictions. This is why acoustic source modeling and turbulence modeling, together with the development of advanced measurement systems, are the leading areas of research in jet noise prediction at NASA Glenn. RANS-based jet noise prediction schemes based on Lilley’s Acoustic Analogy offer relatively quick answers compared to those from alternative methods like Large-Eddy Simulations (LES) or Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS).

The JeNo jet noise prediction code calculates the far-field sound spectral density produced by axisymmetric jets at a user-specified observer location and frequency range. Currently, JeNo has been validated for subsonic and low supersonic, unheated axisymmetric jets.
