A time-domain analytic formulation is developed to predict the radiated noise from supersonically rotating sources in a subsonic moving medium with arbitrary direction. This analytic formulation is a new solution of the convective Ffowcs Williams-hawkings (FW-H) equation based on the so-called ‘emissions surface’ method, which has the capability of practically avoid Doppler singularity encountered in the well-known subsonic Formulations 1 and 1A. Thus, this formula can be used to predict the complicate high-speed impulsive (HSI) noise, which is one of the major contributors of noise radiated from some modern (rotor and propeller) configurations. Meanwhile, the effects of mean flow and incidence on the radiated noise can be explicitly considered in this formula. A supersonic tip-speed propeller blade at incidence validates the accuracy of the derived analytic formulation.
