Noise emission is an increasing environmental concern in large urban areas and a competitive issue in today’s global market. The fan is one of the most used components in ventilation and cooling systems and their noise reduction is a major preoccupation. New technologies have been emerging recently, based on acoustic control, such as porous treatment of airframe surfaces, airfoil leading-edge or trailing-edge serrations. This lecture will present the application of leading-edge and trailing-edge serrations on the blades of a plenum fan (centrifugal fan without volute), as well as the analytical modelling of the noise of the baseline unserrated fan.
Ignacio Zurbano Fernández holds a PhD in Acoustics from École Centrale de Lyon (France) and an MSc in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Oviedo (Spain). He is currently working as a Consultant Engineer in Acoustics for Capgemini Engineering in Toulouse (France) and has previously worked for CETIAT (France) and CERN (Switzerland).
