LES formulation was applied to simulate the flow fields around rotating fan blades tested by DLR. The turbulent flows around fan blade rotating with 500 RPM were simulated and the far-field noise was exactly computed by using the Ffowcs Williams and Hawkings equation with an inclusion of quadrupole source formulation. Variations of lift forces and deviation angles in the spanwise direction were analyzed to correlate flow parameters with acoustics parameters and identify noise sources. The dipole noise computed at the far-field by computed drag and lift forces was in good agreement with experimental data and the dipole source was also found to be the major contributor to overall far-field noise from unsteady calculation.
