Dr David Angland is Lecturer in Aeroacoustics and Aerodynamics within Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton.

While primarily my background is in experimental aerodynamics, I also have experience in CFD/CAA.  Most of my current work is on aeroacoustics, working closely with colleagues in the Airbus Noise Technology Centre.

My first degree was in aeronautical engineering at the University of Limerick.  I then studied for my MSc at Cranfield University, under the supervision of Prof John L Stollery.  My thesis was entitled "Fin/Body Interaction at Hypersonic Speeds" and involved experiements at Cranfield University's Gun Tunnel facility at Mach numbers of up to 8.2. 

I came to the University of Southampton in 2003 to study for my PhD "Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics of Flap Side-Edges", under the supervision of Prof Xin Zhang.  My research focused on low speed flows and aeroacoustics and involved experiments in the low speed R J Mitchell wind tunnel.  I stayed at the University as a post-doctoral researcher looking at assessing and developing blowing flow control methods for landing gear noise reduction.  Firstly the methods were demonstrated on bluff bodies, both for isolated components and for components in interaction.  Finally the flow control treatments were applied to a 1/4th scale A340 landing gear model.  The experiments took place in the 2.1 m x 1.5 m wind tunnel and the DARP facility, both at the University. 

I was promoted to a lectureship in 2012, teaching SESA1015 Flight Operations and Mechanics of Flight.
