Airfoil Self Noise Prediction Using Linear Regression Approach

Conference paper
Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST, volume 32)


This project attempts to predict the scaled sound pressure levels in decibels, based on the aerodynamic and acoustic related attributes. Each attribute can be regarded as a potential feature. The problem is how to predict the sound pressure level accurately based on those features. This paper describes the approaches of using linear regression models and other optimization algorithms used for the better predictions. The comparative results and analysis are also provided in experiment and results section.
