Fluids, Acoustics & Vibration

The Fluids, Acoustics & Vibration group conducts research on modelling and analysis of flow/structure interactions, vibro-acoustic and aeroacoustic problems. The research activities of the group cover a wide range of interdependent disciplines in which specific expertise has been developed and used to generate innovative solutions to complex engineering problems.

21st CEAS-ASC Workshop


Aeroacoustics Research in Europe – 2017 Highlights

One of the yearly activities of the Aeroacoustics Specialists Committee of the Confederation of European Aerospace Societies (CEAS-ASC) is to summarise significant R&D activities in Aeroacoustics in Europe in a report which is usually published as an article in the Journal of Sound and Vibration (JSV). As a member of the ASC, Prof. Dr. Lars Enghardt will be the editor of the highlights for 2017. If you would like to submit a contribution to be considered for publication as a highlight, please do so here...
