Unsteady flow and resulting far-field sound are numerically investigated for a door mirror model in this paper. The flow field is solved by Large Eddy Simulation (LES) with the dynamic Smagorinsky model while the surface pressure fluctuations obtained by LES are used to predict the far-field sound based on the acoustic analogy. For the prediction of the far-field sound, Curle’s equation is used under the assumption that the characteristic length of the door mirror model is much smaller than the wavelength of the sound. Comparisons between the predicted and measured data are presented in terms of the time-averaged and fluctuating surface pressure distributions as well as the far-field sound spectrum. Reasonably good agreements have been obtained between the predicted and the measured data. Investigation of the effects of the mesh resolution also shows that improved results can be obtained efficiently if the mesh resolution is increased along the stream-wise direction within the separation region and wake region.
