An efficient discontinuous Galerkin formulation is applied to the solution of the linearized Euler equations and the acoustic perturbation equations for the simulation of aeroacoustic propagation in two-dimensional and axisymmetric problems, with triangular and quadrilateral elements. To improve computational efficiency, a new strategy of variable interpolation order is proposed in addition to a quadrature-free approach and parallel implementation. Moreover, an accurate wall boundary condition is formulated on the basis of the solution of the Riemann problem for a reflective wall. Time discretization is based on a low dissipation formulation of a fourth-order, low storage Runge–Kutta scheme. Along the far-field boundaries a perfectly matched layer boundary condition is used. For the far-field computations, the integral formulation of Ffowcs Williams and Hawkings is coupled with the near-field solver. The efficiency and accuracy of the proposed variable order formulation is assessed for realistic geometries, namely sound propagation around a high-lift airfoil and the Munt problem.
