I'm not an expert on noise or serrated trailing edges but:

- Maybe a compressible solver could be necessary for the noise source computation

- How does the characteristic length of the sawtooth trailing edge compares with the grid spacings that will be used in the simulations? Is the wall-modeling feasible at all in this case?

just my 2 cents

Thanks for your advice! Actually, I have no experience on CFD..I'm an undergraduate.
The proposal was written after reading several papers. I just randomly choose one wall model. I don't know whether this wall model is feasible or not.
So, what's the advantage of compressible over incompressible

The way pressure is computed in compressible or incompressible flow solvers is substantially different as well as its meaning. More specifically, for incompressible solvers the computed pressure has nothing in common with the acoustic pressure.

As a consequence, incompressible solvers can't be used for acoustics.

As long as wall models are concerned, it is not the model itself to be problematic. The problem is, as you are going to use a wall model at a somehow high Reynolds number, you will end up with somehow large grid cells. The question is, what is the ratio between this grid cell size and the typical length of the serrated edge? If the Reynolds number is sufficiently high you might end-up with non-trivial grid requirements.

I repeat, i am not an expert of the specific field, i'm just guessing. I don't even know what is the level of the proposal needed to get into the graduate school you are thinking of. In my country you can go Ph.D. only after the batchelor and the master; hence, at that point, you are supposed to know things differently. But, even in that case, i ended up with a much less detailed proposal at my time (considering, however, that usually it really has low relevance in my country, in the sense that you are not supposed to really work on that).
