Abstract

The estimation of fluid dynamic noise generated by anthropogenic sources in realistic marine basins and on land is paramount for human safety and environmental protection. Classical acoustic analogies have limited capabilities when considering the natural variability and peculiarities of the acoustic propagation domain. The Full Acoustic Analogy (FAA), based on the combination of an acoustic analogy for source characterization and a propagation model for far-field transmission, allows the estimation of detailed soundmaps, practical when assessing the risk associated with exposure to fluid-dynamic noise, both impulsive and continuous. The verification of the methodology, consisting of comparing of the far-field acoustic pressure signal obtained with the FAA and with the Ffowcs-Williams and Hawkings equation (classical acoustic analogy for moving immersed bodies), is proven for the first time for the quadrupole non-linear terms. The latter may contribute significantly to the total noise field at small-to-medium distances from the source. In conjunction, the ability of the FAA method to predict the acoustic pressure distribution within the three-dimensional propagation domain is highlighted.
