Abstract

Generated noise of moving objects in different fluids is one the most important subjects among scientists and researchers. Accordingly, in the present work, effects of splitters with different length and location on sound pressure level of circular cylinder are investigated by COMOSL software. Aerodynamic and aero-acoustic analyses are done in an air channel with Reynolds number 200. The analyses include 7 different cases of splitters. The obtained results indicate that splitters do not influence the frequency of lift force oscillation, but vibration force is reduced by about 99.6%. In the meantime, the SPL is increased 15.4 percent, when double splitters are located at the upper half of the cylinder. The best case scenario occurs when one splitter with a length equal to the diameter of cylinder is located at this position. In this situation, SPL is reduced by about 6.4 percent and lift force oscillation is increased by about 90.5 percent.
