Understanding and Reducing Installed Jet Noise

Jet noise can be significantly amplified when placed close to a solid surface. This scenario occurs when a jet engine is installed near an aircraft wing. The pursuit of higher propulsion efficiency is achieved as ever by enlarging the engine bypass ratio, leading to an increasing engine diameter. The engine becomes even closer to the wing, leading to significant interactions between them and hence noise amplification. This talk will be focused on providing insight into the noise sources of closely installed jets based on high-fidelity eddy-resolving simulation and its associated data-driven analysis, from canonical to industrially relevant cases. Control strategies are further explored based on understanding noise sources to better reduce noise at the source.


Speaker Bio:

Dr Zhong-Nan Wang is currently a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the University of Birmingham. Prior to it, he worked as a research associate at the University of Cambridge. Dr Wang has a general interest in developing high-fidelity CFD and its associated data-driven methods to predict, understand and control turbulence-generated noise. He has extensive experience in developing and using high-fidelity CFD to study jet and fan noise, and was awarded the best scientific award of ARCHER for his numerical research on installed jet noise. His research has been supported by EPSRC, EU H2020 and ATI in collaboration with industry partners.


Zoom: The webinar will be held using the Zoom platform. Joining instructions will be emailed to as part of the registration ticket.
