AACE-AFM-141: Noise reduction through low-order modelling of turbulent fluids


Project Description

Aircraft noise is one of the most important impacts that air traffic has on our environment. The noise at take-off and landing is largely due to the turbulent wake of the landing gear. This project involves developing new methods to predict and eliminate this noise. The work will involve extending recent developments in the low-order modelling turbulent boundary layers to complex geometries such as landing gear. It will also involve designing and optimising noise mitigation strategies within this new framework. The end result will be a new methodology for the design and control of noise for a wide range of applications.

Prospective applicants should have a first class honours degree in an Engineering subject, Applied Mathematics, Physics or similar discipline and must be able to demonstrate a strong mathematical aptitude. Programming experience (C++, python, Matlab etc) would be a strong advantage.

If you wish to discuss any details of the project informally, please contact Dr A Sharma, Aerodynamics & Flight Mechanics, Email: .
