This contribution benchmarks the aeroacoustic workflow of the perturbed convective wave equation and the Ffowcs Williams and Hawkings analogy in Farassat’s 1A version for a low-pressure axial fan. Thereby, we focus on the turbulence modeling of the flow simulation and mesh convergence concerning the complete aeroacoustic workflow. During the validation, good agreement has been found with the efficiency, the wall pressure sensor signals, and the mean velocity profiles in the duct. The analysis of the source term structures shows a strong correlation to the sound pressure spectrum. Finally, both acoustic sound propagation models are compared to the measured sound field data.
