For the complexity of the sound generated mechanism of rotating body source, this paper describes a frequency-domain numerical method for predicting sound radiation of rotating body sources based on the Kirchhoff integral equation with analytical Green’s function of rotating monopole and dipole source in free space. The sound radiation model is established in free space and the relationship between characteristics of sound field and acoustic nature frequency of source, angular frequency and its harmonics can be revealed by the mathematical solution. Numerical simulation shows that sound field has a strong directivity, fundamental frequency transmitting in the rotary shaft direction and harmonics spreading along radial direction and frequency shift phenomena appearing clearly in higher rotating speed of source. The method has a theoretical significance for exploring the low-noise rotating machinery.
