Active Control of Aircraft Noise: Concept to Reality
The 2005 Scientific Workshop was held on November 10 and 11 at KTH in Stockholm and was devoted to "Active Control of Aircraft Noise: Concept to Reality".
70 people representing 17 countries attended the workshop, which featured 3 keynote speeches (including one from the US) and 17 contributed papers. The programme was divided into four sessions: Interior noise, Airframe Noise, Jet Noise and Fan noise.
The workshop was concluded by a panel session addressing Airframe Noise, Jet Noise and Fan Noise the following issues :
- Will concepts ever be a reality?
- Breakthroughs needed?
- Physical understanding, actuators, sensors, control systems?
- Flow control?
- Steady or unsteady?
- Structural actuators?
- Acoustic actuators?
- Active control or adaptive ”passive control”?
