    In this paper we present a review of some fluid mechanical phenomena involved in bilabial plosive sound production. As a basis for further discussion, firstly an in vivo experimental set-up is described. The order of magnitude of some important geometrical and fluid dynamical quantities is presented. Different theoretical flow models are then discussed and evaluated using in vitro measurements on a replica of the lips and using numerical simulations.
