In this work, a numerical study about the aerodynamic tonal noise generation in an industrial centrifugal fan with backward curved blades has been carried out. A three-dimensional numerical simulation of the complete unsteady flow on the whole impeller-volute configuration has been performed. Special attention has been focused on the impeller-volute interaction phenomena, analysing the influence of the distance between the impeller and the volute tongue. The numerical results have been contrasted using previous experimental investigations carried out in the same machine.
