TsAGI Specialists participate in the conference “Environmental acoustics”
26 May 2017
Experts of the Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute named after professor N.E. Zhukovsky (TsAGI, part of the National Research Center “Institute named after N.E. Zhukovsky”) participated in the Second All-Russian Conference of Young Scientists and Specialists “Environmental acoustics,” which was held in May. The event took place on in the Bauman Moscow State Technical University.
The conference was dedicated to the discussion of a wide range of issues related to acoustic contamination of the environment and protection against noise impact on people. The experts of the Aeroacoustics and Ecology Division for TsAGI Aircraft presented the results of their studies. Among the participants of the conference were young scientists of the Institute who made presentations on different aspects of modern aeroacoustics. In particular, the efficiency of the “Cabaret” program was discussed. This program is intended for the enhancement of basic aims of acoustics with regard to studying the diffraction effect on a sharp edge. The results of test conducted on units “interferometer with flow,” which are used for studying soundproof structures in flow conditions with the help of semiactive electro-acoustic systems, were also discussed. One of the speakers analyzed some aspects of noise zoning of the areas near airports. Also presented were the results of works performed in cooperation with the colleagues from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and Perm National Research Polytechnic University. Among those works — studies on disturbance of steady flow in a ring vortex, as well as on shearing instability of a cylinder placed in restricted circulation flow with constant vorticity.
The Second All-Russian Conference of Young Scientists and Specialists “Environmental acoustics” has been held since 2016 and is aimed at acquainting the participants with modern achievements of acoustics while providing them with a deeper understanding of acoustics issues with the help of discussions and debates.
