Turbomachinery Noise Radiation through the Engine Exhaust (TURNEX)

Research is needed to develop innovative concepts and enabling technologies to reduce aeroengine noise at source. Turbomachinery noise radiating from the bypass and core nozzles is becoming the dominant noise source on modern aircraft, but, while recent EU research programmes have made significant progress in reducing both the generation of turbbmachinery noise and the radiation of noise from the intake, little work has been conducted on reducing the radiation of turbomachinery noise from exhaust nozzles. TURNEX will address this shortfall by delivering improved understanding and validated design methods, and by evaluating a number of low-noise nozzle configurations aimed at a source noise reduction of 2-3dB.To achieve that goal, TURNEX will exploit the noise technology and methodology acquired in EC-funded projects and national programmes. TURNEX has four focussed objectives: 1. To test experimentally at model scale innovative noise reduction concepts and conventional engine exhaust configurations utilising novel simulated turbomachinery noise sources and innovativemeasurement techniques. 2. To improve computational prediction methods for turbomachinery noise radiation through the engine exhaust and to validate these methods with the experimental data. 3. To conduct a parametric study of real geometry/flow effects and noise reduction concepts as applied to current and future aircraft configurations. 4. To assess technically the relative merits of different approaches to testing fan rigs in European noise facilities. The consortium consists of two leading airframe manufacturers, three leading engine manufacturers, an SME that specialises in computational aeroacoustics software, three leading research centres and three leading universities from France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, Turkey and the UK. This mix of partners forms the basis for delivering the ambitious project objectives.

Recent developments in nanoscale electronics allow current wireless technologies to function in nanoscale environments. Especially due to their incredible electrical and electromagnetic properties, carbon nanotubes are promising physical phenomenon that are used for the realization of a nanoscale communication paradigm. This provides a very large set of new promising applications such as collaborative disease detection with communicating in-vivo nanosensor nodes and distributed chemical attack detection wit...
Leveraging MOOCs with personalization and adaptation
Çelik, İlknur; Gürbüz, Tarkan (null; 2014-05-01)
The advancements in technology are accelerating the development and diffusion of new innovative e-learning solutions. The e-learning industry is growing and offering new opportunities for both formal and informal learning. Open Educational Resources (OER) movement has gained considerable attention recently as an attempt to provide digital materials that can be used, and repurposed for teaching and learning. OER are becoming very popular learning materials including full courses, textbooks, modules, syllabi,...
Sustainability-oriented innovation system analyses of Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Turkey and Singapore
Kılkış, Şiir (2016-09-01)
The coherency of research, development, and innovation processes are vital in promoting a more resource efficient society. Sustainability-oriented innovation systems define specific kinds of innovation systems, i.e. those that are directed to the aims of sustainable development. This paper develops an integrated method with four layers of analysis to evaluate the priorities and performances of such systems. The method is applied to a sample of emerging and innovation based economies, namely Brazil, Russia, ...
Virtual Environments for Learning: The Design Model
Tokel, Saniye Tuğba (2007-06-28)
In this presentation, we will describe a project recently funded by the National Science Foundation to develop Virtual Environments for Learning (VELs) for middle school science. VELs are designed to engage students in student-directed inquiry within the context of a complex task. All resources students need to address the task, including virtual scientific tools and scaled versions of information technologies, are contained within the environment. Design guidelines with examples drawn from two VELs will be...
Computer aided noise prediction in heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems
Güngör, Faruk Emre; Çalışkan, Mehmet; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2003)
This thesis aims at preparing a user-friendly software tool for the prediction and analysis of the noise generated in Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems elaborating the standardized prediction formulae and data coming from the research studies. For the analysis portion of the software, different types of indoor noise criteria are introduced and implemented in the software to ease the investigation of the level and the quality of the sound perceived by the occupant in a room through suc...
