An overview of some recent advances in simulation, modeling, and control of flow/acoustic resonance in flows over open cavities is provided. A wide variety of experiments utilizing differing actuator concepts, with both open and closed-loop control, have shown that significant attenuation of tones and broadband noise is possible. These are discussed in connection with recent advances in theoretical modeling and numerical simulation. Such work may ultimately provide accurate low-order models of cavity resonance that are suitable for robust and effective control over a wide range of flow conditions. Several areas that will require further advances in our understanding of the flow physics are highlighted.
