In this paper, radiated sound from low Mach number turbulent boundary layers is studied using Lighthill’s analogy. The focus is to investigate the behavior of wall pressure fluctuations on a flexible wall boundary. Comparisons are made between the results from rigid and flexible walls. At low frequencies, the flexible wall results have shown much higher levels of power spectra. At high frequencies, the spectra of the flexible wall sound radiation and those of the rigid wall sound radiation merge. These trends are in agreement with other experimental and theoretical results in literature. This theoretical study of the two-dimensional turbulent boundary layer can clarify the effects of a flexible wall on radiated sound in low Mach number flows.
