Noise radiated by an open cavity at low Mach number: Effect of the cavity oscillation mode
Rights accessOpen Access
The present work focuses on the study of noise generation and radiation of an infinite open three-dimensional cavity at low Mach number with laminar upstream conditions that is of interest to understand noise generation mechanisms in wall-bounded separated flows. A particular feature of this configuration is the oscillatory mode: shear layer mode or wake mode. For the parameters considered in the present study it is seen that while in shear layer mode the flow shows a two-dimensional behavior, in the wake mode the flow is three-dimensional, resulting in significantly different sound sources. The influence of the acoustic feedback mechanism in the shear layer mode has also been investigated comparing the results between different momentum thickness values at the cavity inlet. This paper presents results of sound radiated by a three-dimensional infinite open cavity with aspect ratio L/D = 4 at Reynolds number based on the cavity depth of ReD = 1500 and Mach number of M = 0.15, both for shear layer (L/θ = 67) and wake (L/θ = 84) oscillation modes. To do so, Curle integral evaluated as a post-process of an incompressible solution will be used. The results are compared with the resulting Curle post-process of a two-dimensional incompressible simulation
