Controlling noise from gas turbines – PhD opportunity at UTS (Sydney)

Posted on Jan 10, 2019 in Job Opportunities in Acoustics

The Centre for Audio, Acoustics and Vibration (CAAV) at UTS (Sydney) was formed in 2017 and now has nine full time academic staff. The Centre is based at Tech Lab, which is a brand new research led facility that is close to the airport in Sydney. Tech Lab hosts brand new state-of-the-art acoustics experimental facilities that includes an anechoic chamber, semi-anechoic chamber, reverberation room and sound transmission loss suite. These new facilities will support new research projects in acoustics, including this current project.

The PhD project will involve working closely with an international manufacturer of Gas Turbine exhaust systems. The project will develop an understanding of the acoustic performance of the panels used in the gas turbines. This will include the use of the acoustics facilities to measure the panel properties, as well as a comparison with mathematical models. The project will develop new techniques and technologies that are suitable for use in gas turbine systems, and work closely with our sponsoring company to ensure these results are applicable to real world problem.

The successful candidate will work in a thriving acoustics research group at a brand new facility dedicated to industry driven research. This will include the chance to collaborate with researchers in other areas at Tech Lab, as well as undergo research training and development.
