PhD project:

Title: Computational aeroacoustics of the exhaust flow for noise assessment and control

Short description: Quantification of the near- and far-field noise generated in a rotating detonation combustion configuration, identification of acoustic sources at operating conditions. Quantification of potential noise suppression technologies (chevrons, fluidics…).

Supervisor: Prof. Mihai Mihaescu (KTH)

Mentor: (TBD)

Planned secondments: 

UniFi (3 months): Assessment of boundary conditions and requirements with high-fidelity computational approach

 TUB (3 months): Experimental research on RDC exhaust flow and generated noise

Background: 

After having studied Mathematics and Physics in France, I completed a Master's Degree in Aerospace Engineering at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. For my research I mainly focused on Aeroacoustics and Numerical Methods, in particular due to my deep interest in the mathematical modeling of sound generation and propagation.
