1. Predicting the sound field from aeroacoustic sources on moving vehicles : Towards an improved urban environment
Sammanfattning : In a society where environmental noise is becoming a major health and economical concern, sound emissions are an increasingly critical design factor for vehicle manufacturers. With about a quarter of the European population living close to roads with heavy traffic, traffic noise in urban landscapes has to be addressed first. LÄS MER
2. Sound propagation from sustainable ground vehicles : from aeroacoustic sources to urban noise
Sammanfattning : Transportation is the main source of environmental noise in Europe, with an estimated 125 million people affected by excessive noise levels from road traffic, causing a burden of noise related diseases and having a substantial economic impact on society. In order to reduce exposure to high levels of traffic noise, two approaches are the topic of extensive research: preventing sound from propagating from roads and railways using for example noise barriers, and reducing the sources of noise themselves.

3. A Wave Expansion Method for Aeroacoustic Propagation
Sammanfattning : Although it is possible to directly solve an entire flow-acoustics problem in one computation, this approach remains prohibitively large in terms of the computational resource required for most practical applications. Aeroacoustic problems are therefore usually split into two parts; one consisting of the source computation and one of the source propagation. LÄS MER
4. Aeroacoustic Prediction for Vertical Axis Wind Turbines
Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the aerodynamic and aeroacoustic prediction of vertical axis wind turbines, using computational fluid dynamics simulations. Noise pollution from wind turbines is one of the disadvantages of wind energy, calling for strategies to reduce noise levels. LÄS MER
5. Numerical Methods for Aeroacoustic Analysis of Turbomachines
Sammanfattning : Numerical simulations are important tools for developing new aircraft that can meet future needs. When numerical simulations are used to compute aircraft noise, a two-step procedure is often employed. In the first step, the noise sources are determined using, e.g. LÄS MER
