RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research area is Aeroacoustics – specifically in the development and validation of models of high-frequency wall jet noise, with a view to noise reduction and attenuation. In particular I am interested in



  • Fundamental characterization of the effect of various flow parameters on the associated acoustic emission

  • Development of improved models for predicting the Turbulent Mixing Noise (TMN) emitted by Coanda wall jets

  • Development of improved models for predicting the Shock-Associated Noise (SAN) emitted by turbulent Coanda wall jets, and relating this to the shock cell structure within the Coanda jet

  • Application of existing, and development of new Coanda models to rocket launch vibroacoustics. Specifically, modelling the Coanda wall jet behavior in the J-duct flame trench which diverts the rocket exhaust plume from the launch pad.
