© Multi-Science Publishing. Sound generation and propagation by low-Reynolds number turbulent jets from a DNS database is modelled using the Goldstein acoustic analogy method. In comparison with previous work, the DNS data feature fully resolved turbulent boundary layers at the pipe nozzle exit and include the free-stream flow to study the influence of coflow on effective noise sources. To investigate the statistics of turbulent sources, fourth-order correlation analysis is applied to the DNS data. The results are in reasonable agreement with the conventional Gaussian turbulence statistics source model. For meanflow sound propagation modelling, adjoint linearised Euler equations are solved i..
