Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

This paper investigates the accuracy of implicit Large Eddy Simulation in the prediction of acoustic phenomena associated with pressure fluctuations within a supersonic turbulent boundary layer. We assess the accuracy of implicit Large Eddy Simulation against Direct Numerical Simulation and experiments for attached turbulent supersonic flow with zero-pressure gradient, and further analyze and discuss the effects of turbulent boundary layer pressure fluctuations on acoustic loading both at the high and low frequency regimes. The results of high-order variants of the simulations show good agreement with theoretical models, experiments, as well as previously published Direct Numerical Simulations.
