Aerodynamic noise

  • M. J. Fisher (a1) and M. V. Lowson (a2)


A symposium on aerodynamic noise was held at Loughborough University from 14 to 17 September 1970 under the sponsorship of the Royal Aeronautical Society and the British Acoustical Society. The objective of the meeting was to focus attention on unsolved theoretical and experimental problems which will require attention over the next few years. Areas which were covered included jet noise, nonlinear acoustics, rotor noise, and diffraction theory. The symposium was successful in bringing together several new themes in aerodynamic noise research. The most significant of these were the existence of a degree of order in turbulent jet flows, and the dominant effect of inflow conditions on rotor noise radiation. In addition an improved and unified basis for jet noise theory seems to be evolving.
