Zhong-nan Wang is developing high fidelity computational fluid dynamics methods for simulations of aero-engine noise and aims to reduce the noise created by them for future aeroplanes. Using high performance computing, the fine turbulent structures that generate the sound can be numerically reproduced and visualized. In this way, sound generation mechanisms can be explored for improving scientific understandings and viable low noise designs can also be pursued for future generation aircraft engines.

Zhong-nan is at the Department of Engineering.
