Seminar - Noise Research at the University of Southampton by Dr. David Angland
Date: 28 October 2015 (Wednesday)
Time: 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Venue: EF305, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
The Airbus Noise Technology Centre at the University of Southampton was established by Airbus in January 2008. The mission of the Centre is to help combat the pressing environmental issue of aircraft noise by identifying quiet solutions for future airliners. Although individual aircraft noise is decreasing, the number of aircraft are increasing. There are two main ways of reducing aircraft noise, at source and via changes in operational methods. In this talk, current research on understanding and reducing aircraft noise at source will be presented as well as tools being developed to help reduce airframe noise in the future.
David Angland graduated from Cranfield University, UK in 2002 with an MSc in Aerodynamics and a PhD from the University of Southampton, UK (2008). He has been a lecturer in aeroacoustics and aerodynamics at the University of Southampton since 2013. He works in the Airbus Noise Technology Centre (ANTC) based at the University of Southampton. His PhD thesis involved the experimental and computational investigation of flap side-edge noise and its reduction with the use of a porous side-edge. Post-doctoral work involved the use of blowing flow control to reduce bluff body noise. Current research interests are airframe noise, counter rotating open rotor noise, phased microphone array methods, plasma flow control and blowing flow control.
