This paper presents direct numerical simulations (DNS) of sound generation by a two-dimensional laminar, premixed, flame excited at the inflow boundary. This low-Mach and unity Lewis number study investigates the effect of various flame parameters such as the Zel’dovich number, the flame speed, and the temperature ratio, on the sound produced by two annihilation events; namely, ‘flame pinch-off’ and ‘flame island burn-out’ which are observed as strong, monopolar sound sources. The impacts of these flame parameters are found to be quite significant not only on the magnitude of the noise emission, but also on its phase.
