SPLNoise is an aeroacoustic program developed to predict tonal noise generated by low speed axial fans. It is based on a generalization of the acoustic analogy of Lowson. The main input to the program are the radial thrust and torque distribution along the blade. This radial distribution is obtained from a CFD calculation. An automatic link to CFX commercial CFD code was made. Noise testing was performed in the anechoic and reverberant room at the Trane Company. Comparison between predicted noise levels and experimental data is very satisfactory.
