Sound produced by turbulent-boundary layers (TBL) over rough walls is being studied in a series of physical-computational experiments. At issue is the development of a knowledge of how the wall elements generate flow dipoles which directly determines how the sound is described in terms of dependent variables. The considered mechanisms include dipoles at the roughness elements due to their shed wakes, distributed surface dipoles due to convecting turbulence impinging onto elements, Rayleigh-like scattering into sound of aerodynamic pressures of hydrodynamic wave numbers of flow above the roughness. The LES of rough-wall TBL consists of "numerical" experiments being used to isolate the separate mechanisms. These simulations are benchmarked with analysis and with matching physical experiments on rough wall patches in which identical geometries of wall roughness and identical Reynolds numbers are used. In the physical measurements, array-based measurements of the radiated sound are being used to characterize the directivity and magnitude of the sound and to relate the sound to aerodynamic wall pressure and to classical characteristics of the turbulent boundary layer. The LES produces comparison for both radiated sound and detailed flow structure around the roughness elements. This project is funded by the Office of Naval Research, Washington, D.C., USA.
