Abstract: Low frequency sound radiated due to the unsteady motion of an inviscid vortex in the proximity of a flexible membrane backed by an airtight cavity on an otherwise rigid plane is investigated theoretically. Results show that both monopole and dipole are created but the latter is important only when the vortex is traversing over the membrane. The monopole results from the membrane vibration and the dipole from the transverse motion of the vortex. It is also found that these sound fields tend to counteract each other. The increase in the mean flow speed in general results in a stronger acoustic power radiation, but sound attenuation may be possible if the membrane-cavity system is weak compared with the mean flow momentum.
