A propeller low noise design procedure based on boundary integral equation is presented. The aerodynamic field is computed via a potential-based boundary element method for lifting body while the aeroacoustic emitted field is calculated on the basis of the Ffowcs Williams-Hawkings equation. Families of airfoils sections are aerodynamically processed to select the ones that meet the requested performance. Successively, the airfoil sections characterized by the lowest noise emission, among the previously selected ones, are chosen to built the propeller blade. Eventually the whole propeller aeroacoustic performances are analyzed.
