Some questions concerning direct Aeroacoustical simulations using Fluent
Hello everybody,

I'm a beginner user of Fluent, and I have to perform some aeroacoustical calculations, so I would be very grateful if someone could help me.

I'm studying jet noise produced by an in-duct hot (90 degrees Celsius) air injector. A mesh of the injector has already been done for aerodynamic calculations. And I want to use this model to do direct aeroacoustical calculations.

1) Is it ok to use the same mesh?
2) After a lot of research, I think I determined the solver and solution method to use, but I would like to confirm this with a more experienced user. So I'm doing a
-Transient simulation
-SAS model or LES model
-Acoustic FWH model on (source: injector, and 3 receivers spread arround the source (inside and outside the source surface)
-Using a density based explicit solver
-ROE-FDS flux
-How can I determine the timestep and the number of timesteps?
-I used the BCs used for the aerodynamic simulation

Thank you very much in advance for your replies.

Good day to all
