Generation of combustion noise is here studied in a realistic turbine stage configuration, where the temperature fluctuations generated by an aeronautical burner (responsible of the direct combustion noise generation, often neglected in most of the studies) are modelled using a cylindrical fluctuating energy source term placed upstream of the inlet guide vanes. This modelling not only better accounts for the actual physical combustion noise generation phenomena, but also for the actual stratification of temperature at the combustor exit and covers a broader range of exciting frequencies as in actual engines. The temperature fluctuations generated by this realistic fluctuating energy source term are then convected through the turbine stage and the resulting noise is analyzed and compared with previous LES results with ideal monochromatic entropy forcing and analytical compact methods. New physical insight on the various noise generation mechanisms and mode conversion is also provided.
