  • A theory is initiated, based on the equations of motion of a gas, for the purpose of estimating the sound radiated from a fluid flow, with rigid boundaries, which as a result of instability contains regular fluctuations or turbulence. The sound field is that which would be produced by a static distribution of acoustic quadrupoles whose instantaneous strength per unit volume is ρvivj + pij - a20ρδij, where ρ is the density, vi the velocity vector, pij the compressive stress tensor, and a0 the… CONTINUE READING
