The flow-excited acoustic resonance phenomenon, which is instigated by periodic flow perturbation, leads to the generation of acute sound pressure. In this work, we investigated the characteristics of the flow-excited acoustic resonance for circular finned cylinders with different fin heights. The fin height is expressed as a normalized form considering the ratio of the fin diameter to the root cylinder diameter. The experiments are performed with finned cylinders having a range of diameter ratios between . The diameter ratios are varied by changing the root diameter and fin diameter separately as well as simultaneously while keeping the fin pitch and the fin thickness constant. The results show that the excitation of acoustic resonance has profound dependence on the diameter ratio. Increasing the diameter ratios of the finned cylinder results in strong acoustic resonance excitation. The lock-in width and the onset of the acoustic resonance excitation also depend on the diameter ratio of the cylinders. Moreover, the results show that using an effective diameter based on the geometrical flow blockage does not take into account the changes occurring in the source of resonance excitation due to the addition of fins.
