aeroacoustics

[‚er·ō·ə′küs·tiks]
(acoustics)
The science of aerodynamically generated sounds, encompassing the study of how such sounds are produced, how they propagate through various media (including propagation through ducts carrying fluid flows), how they interact with obstacles or barriers or wave-bearing surfaces, how they radiate away, how they can be managed or controlled, and how they are measured or predicted.

NASA's Langley Research Centre plans to issue a contract to Boeing to perform noise studies of open rotor engine configurations on several types of airframes in a company-owned low-speed aeroacoustics facility.
Rick Gaeta, an aeroacoustics specialist, says work so far has allowed "us to separate acoustics issues into their component parts, and that in turn helps us to attack these problems.
Achieving a perfect balance of sound on the exhaust system, the air intake and engine as well as the car's aeroacoustics, Porsche's development engineers have succeeded in giving the Panamera a harmonious, characteristic sound pattern all round, bringing together seemingly contradictory requirements.
Washington, Jan 24 (ANI): In a new study, aeroacoustics researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) are investigating a stealth technology that could help control noise from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which may help the aircraft to evade enemies.
Content includes information on mechanics of materials and structures, aerodynamics and fluid mechanics, dynamics and control, aeroacoustics, propulsion and combustion, avionics and systems, flight simulation, and unmanned air vehicles.
Abstract: The objective of the research described in this paper was to develop numerical simulations and to compare the results with laboratory experiments in new, promising zones of aeroacoustics, considered fruitful for the environmental technologies, particularly related to aerodynamic noise suppression.
