Research Description

My research focuses on predicting the high-frequency noise - particularly Turbulent Mixing Noise and Shock Associated Noise (SAN) - emitted by turbulent Coanda wall jets. Recently my research has been focused on rocket launch noise, which can cause high levels of unexpected vibration (vibroacoustics) leading to potentially catastrophic damage to the payload and cargo module. My current work focusses on the application of the Parker-Sochacki Method to the prediction of SAN within rocket exhaust jets.
