The sound produced by unsteady, often turbulent flows and their interactions with solid objects is of significant interest in a wide array of engineering and biological systems. Major advances in this field require multipronged efforts involving theoretical, computational and experimental approaches that depend heavily on the Mach number and Reynolds number regimes of the flow. This symposium will bring together presentations spanning a broad range of flow regimes of practical importance, from low-Mach-number flows of hydroacoustic interest to high subsonic and supersonic flows in the majority of aeroacoustic applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, accurate prediction and measurement of flow-generated sound, fundamental understanding of the physical source processes, techniques for noise reduction, and novel numerical and experimental methods in aeroacoustics.
