The paper presents an analysis of various approaches for calculation gas­dynamic parameters and acoustic perturbations generated by a compressible jet at low Reynolds number (M = 0.9, Re = 3600). The jet flow parameters at selected conditions are well studied and can be used for validation of the numerical methods and schemes. The OpenFOAM software package with various approaches (solvers) such as pimpleCentralFoam, dbnsTurbFoam and new QGDFoam solver based on QGD-algorithms are considered. The results of time­averaged flow parameters and acoustic properties are compared with the experimental data. To determine the acoustic perturbation the Ffowcs Williams and Hawkings analogy implemented in our OpenFOAM library (libAcoustic) has been used.
