Abstract:

This paper describes the sound generated by uniform flow over a heated cylinder, calculated for a range of Reynolds and Grashof numbers. The time-dependent, incompressible flow field is computed using a vorticity-stream function method containing the Boussinesq approximation. Using the computed incompressible flow field, the radiated sound is computed using a low frequency Greens function technique. Snapshots of the vorticity and temperature fields and time histories of the radiated sound pressure are presented and compared with existing results. Computational Acoustics CA, Heated cylinder
