Abstract. Novel boundary integral formulations suitable for the radiation of acoustic pressure from deformable, solid or porous, surfaces in arbitrary motion are theoretically/numerically developed. These will first be applied to a translating wing subject to unsteady bending and torsion. The influence of surface deformation on the evaluated perturbation fields will be assessed for different amplitude and frequency values of the bending and torsion modes. Subsequently, pressure will be radiated from a deformable porous sphere to validate the formulations for this type of surface.
