The aerodynamic excitation of ducted cavity diametral modes, which are inherently antisymmetric acoustic modes, by the oscillation of the axisymmetric free shear layer gives rise to complex flow-sound interaction mechanisms, in which the acoustic diametral modes do not possess a preferred azimuthal orientation. The azimuthal behaviour of this self-excitation mechanism is investigated experimentally. The study is performed for axisymmetric shallow cavities in a duct for a range of cavity length to depth ratio of L/d = 1 to 4, and for Mach numbers up to 0.4. Three pressure transducers flush mounted to the cavity floor are used to determine the acoustic mode amplitude and orientation. The excited acoustic modes are classified into spinning, partially spinning and stationary diametral modes. An analytical model based on the superposition of two orthogonal modes with 90° temporal phase shift is developed to reproduce the spinning and the partially spinning diametral modes. The developed model clarifies the observed complex behaviour of the azimuthal modes.
