The AeroAcoustics Research (AAR)


The AeroAcoustics Research (AAR) group studies aeroacoustics phenomena and flow-induced noise through wind tunnel testing and computer simulations.

The AAR goal is the continued development of quieter environmentally friendly aircraft concepts, through the creation of a sustainable flow-induced noise prediction framework and innovative noise measurement platform in low- and high-speed flows. We are devoted to developing fundamental research driven by an application that protects our environment, by improving existing and forecasted issues. Many of our research projects are focused on the prediction of airflow-induced noise, noise reduction at source, drag reduction, turbulence modelling, design optimization and the development of aircraft concepts aiming at noise reduction, to minimize noise exposure in our community – you are welcome to visit our research publications page or contact Dr. Joana Rocha for more details.
