Damiano CASALINO (DC), Acoustics Industry Process Expert Director, leads the Acostics Discipline Enablement team in SIMULIA Industry Process Success group. He has a background in fluid mechanics, aeroacoustics and acoustics, and he is currently chair of Aeroacoustics at Delft University of Technology. After having developped multiple solvers for acoustics and aeroacoustics (FEM, BEM, FW-H, SNGR, LES, etc.), including SIMULIA noise certification and source analysis tools, and after having expanded the usage of PowerFLOW LBM from airframe aeroacoustics to aero-engine and rotorcraft applications, DC is currently focusing on 3DEXPERIENCE Model-Based System Engineering solutions for flight mission analysis and community noise.
Francesco AVALLONE is Assistant Professor at the AWEP Department, Wind Energy Section, at Delft University of Technology. He received both his MSc and PhD degrees from the University of Naples Federico II. In 2015, Francesco joined Delft University of Technology as PostDoc in Aeroacoustics. During this period, he worked on turbulent boundary layer trailing edge noise mitigation with innovative trailing edge serrations. Since July 2017, Francesco is Assistant Professor. His research interests are airfoil self-noise, acoustic liners and jet installation noise. For his research, he uses both experimental and computational techniques.
Title: Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics of Duct Wind Turbines for Urban Environments
Ducted Wind Turbines are a potential technological solution to increase wind energy production in urban environment, where the presence of buildings disturbs the flow uniformity resulting in lower wind speed with larger turbulent fluctuations. Since they are installed close to urban areas, they are subject to noise regulations, then an aeroacoustics study is necessary.
In this presentation, the aerodynamic and the aeroacoustics fields of Ducted Wind Turbines with different duct geometries and operating under different inflow conditions and angles of attack are investigated using the PowerFLOW solver.
Wouter holds a Ph.D. in Aeroacoustics from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, where he studied computational aeroacoustic methods in close corporation with Siemens Wind Power.
He has been working on aerospace, rotorcraft, and wind energy applications with PowerFLOW for the last 8 years. With the primary focus on aeroacoustics, he is currently working as an Expert Specialist in the Industry Process Success group.
Davide graduated in Aerospace Engineering with a specialization in Aerodynamics at Politecnico di Milano. After his master, he worked in a famous aerospace and defense Italian group as aircraft preliminary design engineer, and later in a CFD consultant company where he expanded his knowledge to several other engineering fields, working with Navier-Stokes based codes and taking care of 3D-1D CFD code coupling. He moved then to Japan where he started working with LBM codes in Exa Corp. (now Dassault Systèmes) and got involved with The University of Tokyo for research involving adjoint methods for scalar source characterization in turbulent flows. Finally, he joined Dassault Systèmes, first in the Airframe A&D team, and later in the Acoustics Discipline Enablement team, where he currently uses mainly PowerFLOW for airframe aerodynamics and aeroacoustics.
