The capability of a linearized computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method for predicting turbine tone noise is investigated through comparison with measurements. To start with, a benchmark problem on flat plates is presented, and results are put together with those published by other authors. Then, numerical predictions are compared with measurements from two low-pressure turbines (LPTs), which have been tested in different facilities. The first specimen is a three-stage cold flow rig, noise tested in the Centro de Tecnologías Aeronáuticas (CTA) facility (Bilbao, Spain) in 2012 and funded by the Clean Sky EU Program. The second is the advanced near-term low emissions (ANTLE) LPT rig, full-scale, cold flow, noise tested in the twin shaft test facility (TSTF) in Rolls-Royce (Derby, UK) in 2005 and funded by the SILENCE(R) EU Funded Program. The comparison includes multistage effects, clocking sensitivities, and acoustic scattering through outlet guide vanes (OGVs).
