Firstly, a numerical computation model of submarine radiation noise was established to obtain the radiation noise of the submarine, which was compared with the experimental results, thus verifying the validity of the model. As indicated by the computational result, the submarine fairwater played a significant impact on radiation noise at the front section, whose structure was therefore necessary to be studied. In the paper, there were several different type submarine fairwaters. Large eddy simulation (LES) and boundary element method (BEM) were applied to conduct the numerical computation for the vortex flow field and acoustic characteristics of the original fairwater, the fairwater with fillet and the streamline fairwater. Furthermore, the impact and suppression effect of the fairwater's type on wall pressure fluctuations and flow-induced noise were analyzed. As shown from the research, the vertical fairwater with fillet or the streamline fairwater can significantly improve the flow quality, thus considerably reducing the pressure fluctuations and flow-induced noise. The paper is conductive to the academic research of flow noise of submarine as well as the new submarine design in the future.
