Professor of Adaptive Systems

Background

The University of Southampton

Steve Elliott graduated with joint honours in physics and electronics from the University of London in 1976 and in 1979 was awarded a Ph.D. from the University of Surrey for a thesis on musical acoustics.

After a short period as a research fellow working on acoustic intensity measurement and then as a temporary lecturer at the University of Surrey, he was appointed lecturer at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) at the University of Southampton, UK, in 1982, under the Science and Engineering Research Council (SERC) “Special Replacement Scheme”. He was made senior lecturer at ISVR in 1988 and Professor of Adaptive Systems in 1994.

He served as Director of the ISVR from 2005 to 2010.

He has authored three books, published over 200 papers in refereed journals, and produced over 500 conference papers and other reports, mainly in the areas of active sound and vibration control, personal audio systems and cochlear mechanics.

Professor Elliott is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America, the IEE and IoA.

He was made a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2009.

Research

Research Interests

Professor Elliott's research interests have been mainly concerned with the connections between the physical world and digital signal processing.

The research was originally related to the active control of sound and vibration. This work has resulted in the demonstration of active control in cars, helicopters and propeller aircraft and the authorship of the books "Active Control of Sound" with P.A. Nelson, "Active Control of Vibration" with C.R. Fuller and P.A. Nelson and, most recently, "Signal Processing for Active Control".

The active control research has traditionally involved the reduction of unwanted noise, most recently on luxury yachts as below, but has recently developed to the reproduction of sound signals, such as music, in specific regions of space, so that, for example, the driver of a car can listen to Radio 4, while a child in the back of the car can listen to a Disney DVD.

He is also involved in working on the growing body of work on modelling the mechanics of the cochlea and the functioning of cochlear implants, as below. This is important not only for communication and speech processing systems, but also in order to help understand the causes of hearing impairment and how they might be overcome.

Hybrid active and passive structural noise control

In this project the feasibility of using active and passive means of vibration control in aerospace structures is investigated. In particular, attention has been focused on controlling vibration transmission through light weight satellite structures at medium frequencies. The structure under test is a 4.5 meter long satellite boom consisting of 10 identical bays with equilateral triangular cross sections. This structure is typical of those that might be used in space telescopes, space stations or synthetic aperture radar systems. Such a structure is typically used to support sensitive instruments in precise alignments spaced tens of metres apart. While a great deal of work has been done on this problem at low frequencies, relatively little has been achieved to date at medium frequencies (here taken to be between 150 Hz and 250 Hz). Nonetheless, this is of importance to new space missions.
