Aircraft Noise Research at the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre in Gas Turbine Noise Seminar

17:10 - 17:50
18 April 2014
Lecture Theatre Room 1019

Event details

Commercial aerospace is under continuous pressure from regulatory bodies and the general public to reduce aircraft noise, which can be a significant issue for communities located close to airports.

The reduction of aircraft noise has been achieved primarily through the development of new quiet technologies, such as the development of high bypass-ratio turbofan engines, quiet airframe designs and bypass duct liners. Rolls-Royce is the world's second largest manufacturer of aircraft engines and is also a world leader in the development of low noise aircraft engines. A significant proportion of Rolls-Royce's research on future low noise engine technologies is conducted at the University Technology Centre (UTC) in gas turbine noise at the University of Southampton. This seminar will give an overview of the research on aircraft engine noise within the UTC giving particular attention to research on the novel Advanced Open Rotor Engine currently under development.
