Numerical simulations of compressible, turbulent jets at M = 0.75 using the Shear Stress Transport (SST) k-ω model have been carried out for baseline nozzle and chevron nozzles with 4, 6 and 8 lobes and three different penetration angles (0°, 5° and 10°). The predicted far field noise level at several observer locations are compared with experimental data. Overall sound pressure levels at far field observer locations have been calculated using Ffowcs Williams-Hawkings equation. Numerical prediction of aerodynamic quantities like centreline velocity, stagnation pressure, turbulent kinetic energy and axial vorticity are compared among the nozzles. The Unsteady Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (URANS) calculations are able to predict the trends in overall SPL, even though the absolute values are slightly under-predicted.
