This contribution deals with the acoustic simulation of aerodynamical noise generated by a flow over an airfoil or by flow in a flexible channel. Since the considered flow has low Mach number the hybrid approach of acoustic analogies can be applied here with benefits. The fluid-structure-acoustic interaction problem is generally described as a quite complicated problem comprising of three different physical fields - the vibration of the elastic body, the unsteady fluid flow and the acoustics together with mutual couplings. The fluid flow in time dependent domain is governed by the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in arbitrary Langrangian-Eulerian formulation and the elastic structure is modelled by the means of linear elasticity theory. The Lighthill analogy and acoustic perturbation equation (APE) is considered to describe the sound propagation. The simulation of fluid-structure (FSI) interaction and acoustic field is implemented using the FEM in an in-house solver. The sound sources computed from FSI results are analyzed and within sound propagation simulation the perfectly matched layer technique is used. In the end the results of Lighthill and APE analogy are compared.
