A new numerical approach called RPM-CN approach is applied to predict broadband combustion noise. This highly efficient hybrid CFD/CAA approach can rely on a reactive RANS simulation. The RPM method is used to reconstruct stochastic broadband combustion noise sources in the time domain based on statistical turbulence quantities. Subsequently, the propagation of the combustion noise is computed by solving the acoustic perturbation equations (APE-4). The accuracy of the RPM-CN approach will be demonstrated by a good agreement of the simulation results with acoustic measurements of the DLR-A flame. The high efficiency and therefore low computational costs enable the usage of this numerical approach in the design process.
