The science of aerodynamically generated sounds, encompassing the study of how such sounds are produced, how they propagate through various media (including propagation through ducts carrying fluid flows), how they interact with obstacles or barriers or wave-bearing surfaces, how they radiate away, how they can be managed or controlled, and how they are measured or predicted.
