An LES code (ALESIA for Appropriate Large Eddy Simulation for Aeroecoustics) is developed using special techniques of Computational AeroAcoustics (CAA). This approach allows a direct determination of the compressible field by solving the filtered Navier-Stokes equations. A 2-D subsonic mixing layer between two flows at 40 and 160 m.s-' is simulated in a computational domain, including the acoustic far field. The sound generated by vortex pairing is then investigated. The radiation pattern has a

Generation noise mechanisms correspond to those proposed by Powell' and Mitchell' in their studies on two co-rotative vortices. The directly computed farfield sound is compared to the prediction of Lighthill's acoustic analogy3 based on LES aerodynamic data. Results agree both with direct simulation and Colonius's works.4
