A finite difference code with multi-block capability and based on MacCormack time marching is developed to simulate two-dimensional unsteady compressible viscous laminar flow over an open cavity. The length to depth ratio of the cavity (L/D) is taken to be 4. The flow in the cavity is dominated by vorticity that acts as a source of sound and is transported downstream. The flow Reynolds number based on cavity depth is ReD =1500 and the Mach number M = 0.15. The radiated sound is further computed using a modified form of the Curlex2019;s integral equation in which the source terms are calculated from flow fluctuations. Results show that the wall contributes most to the sound as expected. The code was validated against standard flow problems.
