The reduction of noise generated by aircraft at take-off and approach is crucial in the design of new commercial aircraft. Landing gear noise is significant contribution to the total noise sources during approach. The noise is generated by the interaction between the non-aerodynamic components of the landing gear and the flow, which leads to turbulence generated noise. This research presents results from the European Clean Sky funded ALLEGRA project. The project investigated a full-scale Nose Landing Gear (NLG) model featuring the belly fuselage, bay cavity and hydraulic dressing. A number of low noise treatments were applied to the NLG model including a ramp door spoiler, a wheel axel wind shield, wheel hub caps and perforated fairings. Over 250 far field sensors were deployed in a number of microphone arrays. Since technologies were tested both in isolation and in combination the additive effects of the technologies can be assessed. This study describes the different techniques used to quantify the contribution of each technology to the global noise reduction. The noise reduction technologies will be assessed as a function of frequency range and through beamforming techniques such as source deletion.
