Summary:
The sound field associated with the motion of 2-dimensional finite core vortex past a forward facing step is obtained. A numerical scheme using Contour Dynamics technique and incompressible, inviscid equations of motion is developed to determine the evolution of the structure of the vortex, its path over the step and the radiated sound. An appropriate low-frequency Green's function is derived and the expression for the far field acoustic pressure as formulated by Mohring is used. The vortex structure evolves in the non-uniform flow in the vicinity of the step and under certain conditions is found to undergo significant deformation of its core structure. The far field acoustic pressure is found to be a strong function of vortex motion in the vicinity of the step. Results for the vortex trajectory and the associated acoustic pressure are presented for a variety of flow parameters.
