To mitigate vortex shedding for flow and noise control of a circular cylinder, an experimental approach combining air blowing and porous coating was implemented simultaneously as a hybrid method. Localized air blowing was symmetrically applied through structured porous media at four angles, corresponding to different regions of the flow field: boundary layers, shear layers on the cylinder, separated shear layers, and the cylinder's base. The study involved synchronizing near-field pressure fluctuation and far-field noise measurements with flow field measurements obtained via particle image velocimetry. Near-field pressure measurements were taken around the cylinder's circumference using a remote sensing method. This comprehensive investigation revealed that vortex shedding primarily induced pressure fluctuations at the cylinder's shoulders, resulting in the propagation of acoustic waves to the far field. The hybrid method, alongside the separate application of porous coating and local blowing, showcased substantial efficacy in mitigating near-field pressure, consequently leading to a reduction in far-field noise. These techniques achieved this by strategically shifting the vortex formation region further downstream and expanding the wake region compared to the baseline. Notably, the hybrid method, particularly when local blowing was applied at the base of the porous coated cylinder, exhibited a significantly enhanced impact in this regard, resembling the behavior observed with the individual application of porous coating.
