A method of noise reduction proposed for the next generation of aircraft is to shield noise from the propulsion system, by positioning the noise source over a wing or another surface. In this paper, an approximate analysis is developed for the acoustic field far from a circular source placed near the edge of a semi-infinite plate, a model problem for shielding of noise by a wing and for scattering by a trailing edge. The approximation is developed for a source of small radius and is found to be accurate when compared to full numerical evaluation of the field.
Key words: Noise shielding / Rotor noise / Trailing edge / Scattering
