In this study, effects of windscreen material property on wind noise reduction are investigated at different frequencies of incoming wind turbulence. The properties of porous materials used for the windscreen are represented by flow resistivity. Computational techniques are developed to study the detailed flow around the windscreen as well as flow inside the windscreen that uses a porous material as the medium. The coupled simulation shows that for low-frequency turbulence, the windscreens with low flow resistivity are more effective in noise reduction. Contrarily, for high-frequency turbulence, the windscreens with high flow resistivity are more effective.
