Stall and separation noise can be major contributors to the noise emission of rotating blades, such as wind turbines, propellers and fans among others. Hence, this paper experimentally investigates the effects a separated boundary layer has on near-field flow structures, on turbulent surface pressure fluctuation statistics, and therefore on noise radiation. Static pressure distributions and boundary layer profiles are presented to characterize the present flow fields pre- and post-stall. Large surface pressure fluctuation spectra increases have been measured, and surface pressure fluctuation autocorrelation width increases by one order of magnitude during stall have been established. Additionally, highly coherent spanwise structures have been shown to influence the hydrodynamic field and changes in the convection velocity have been assessed for separated boundary layers.
