Abstract

This paper is concerned with a mathematical model of a simple axisymmetric silencer-like model, consisting of a hole-tone feedback system equipped with a tailpipe. The unstable shear layer is modeled via a discrete vortex method, based on axisymmetric vortex rings. The aeroacoustic model is based on the Powell- Howe theory of vortex sound. Boundary integrals are discretized via the boundary element method; but the tailpipe is represented by the exact (one-dimensional) solution. It is demonstrated though numerical examples that this numerical model can display lock-in of the self-sustained flow oscillations to the resonant acoustic oscillations.
