PhD Studentship: Fan Noise Due to Turbulent Boundary Layer Ingestion

University of Southampton - Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics, Faculty of Engineering and the Environment

A PhD studentship is now available in the area of fan broadband noise due to turbulent boundary layer ingestion. The studentship provides a unique opportunity to work on a relevant engineering problem with Airbus. For modern Ultra High Bypass Ratio (UHBR) turbofan engines, the likelihood of the fan ingesting part of the turbulent boundary layer is increased. The outcome of this PhD will be an analytical model that can predict this noise source. This PhD studentship will also involve generating experimental data in the new Anechoic Wind Tunnel at the University of Southampton to refine models for the anisotropic turbulence in the boundary layer.

The PhD studentship will provide a good opportunity to work with one of the largest aerospace companies in the world, and explore relevant problems in the aerospace industry.
