Vibrations of elastic structures are a common occurrence in numerous fields of engineering such as aeronautics, aerodynamics, civil engineering, and biomechanics. Particular e ort is dedicated to aeroacoustics of elements that are excited to oscillatory behaviour due to fluid instabilities. The current study is concerned with the numerical investigation of the flow-induced vibrations of a flexible, beam-like element in crossflow at low Reynolds numbers of Re = 100 − 1000 by means of fluid-structure interaction simulations. The aeroa-coustics in the near field are assessed with direct computation of the compressible airflow. Additionally, an acoustic analogy is applied, characterising the acoustic sources and the corresponding sound propagation. At low Reynolds numbers and high elastic moduli the dipole source produces the highest pressure perturbation in the near field. At higher Reynolds numbers and low elastic moduli, however, the monopole source due to structural vibrations becomes the important sound generating mechanism. © 2016, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc, AIAA.
