TAGGED: acoustics, acousticwaves, ffowcs-william-hawkings

I'm calculating sound generated by water flow in pipe by using LES and Ffowks Williams Hawkings model (FW-H model).
My question is what boundary condition does FW-H model use?
The theory guide mentions that the model is applicable to the far-field acoustic wave and acoustic propagation toward free space. Does it means each source grid is a point source? The pipe wall isn't the boudary condition such as reflection?
Also I'm a little bit confusing. Can we change the boundary condition of FH-W model by using the Boudnary Acoustic Wave Models? https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v212/en/flu_ug/flu_ug_sec_nrbc.html

In general, the FW-H model is not applicable to internal flow acoustics such as noise propagation in ducts, but you could have a case where the internal flow is your source and you will be using FW-H to model sound propagation downstream in an external domain.
FW-H solution assumes that the source region radiates sound through a free field environment with no obstacles between the source and receivers. Hence, FW-H will be less sensitive to BCs outside of your source region.

Thank you so much for your responce. I still cannot get completely. Even it calculates acoustically far-field, doesn't it need boundary condition? Does free field become the boudary condition?
FH-W model assumes free field, does it mean the wave is radiated uniformly to all the direction like point source?

The boundary conditions will depend on the model and application that you are solving for. The FW-H model solution is developed as integral terms of the acoustic pressure from the integration surfaces surrounding the source region. Outside of this source region, yes the sound is radiated through a uniform medium. Because of this, you can even set up receiver outside of your simulation domain.

I see… There’re something that I still don’t understand. In case, what does decide the wave number? It means if you place the several receivers in same r with different direcections in the figure, they show same wave?
