@article{Ricot2005AerodynamicEA, title={Aerodynamic excitation and sound production of blown-closed free reeds without acoustic coupling: the example of the accordion reed.}, author={Denis Ricot and Ren{\'e} Causs{\'e} and Nicolas Misdariis}, journal={The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America}, year={2005}, volume={117 4 Pt 1}, pages={ 2279-90 } }

The accordion reed is an example of a blown-closed free reed. Unlike most oscillating valves in wind musical instruments, self-sustained oscillations occur without acoustic coupling. Flow visualizations and measurements in water show that the flow can be supposed incompressible and potential. A model is developed and the solution is calculated in the time domain. The excitation force is found to be associated with the inertial load of the unsteady flow through the reed gaps. Inertial effect…
