Anisotropic flow provides important constraints on the initial conditions and the transport properties of the medium created in heavy-ion collisions. The flow coefficients of higher order harmonics are sensitive to viscous damping [1] and might hinder so-called "acoustic peaks" in flow harmonic power spectrum in analogy to Cosmic Microwave Background in cosmology experiments [2].
We present flow harmonic power spectra in various centrality ranges in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV. The results will be compared to viscous hydrodynamic model calculations.
