Computing the noise produced during snap through effect

I am trying to find the noise produced when a arch shaped structure snaps from one configuration to the next when loaded with a vertical boundary load. I was trying to link the structural mechanics with the acoustics and trying to probe for the solution at the boundary for the pressure but that didn't give me the result. Is there a specific way to solve this problem?

I also thought about monitoring the strain energy through the deformation process and the difference in the strain energy being the energy transferred to the surrounding fluid. I am not sure if that is the correct approach

It would be very helpful if you could come back in this regard.

Thanking you in advance

Regards, Vishaal
