  3. 3. The University Aeronautics and computational engineering Aircraft noiseof Southampton With expertise in fundamental and applied aeronautics research, Our Institute for Sound and Vibration Research is a recognisedoffers world-class we have repeatedly demonstrated value through our close centre of excellence and it hosts research technology centres forresearch expertise collaborations with industry. The Rolls-Royce Technology Centre Rolls Royce and Airbus. Areas of expertise include:and consultancy for Computational Engineering is an example of a highly productive industrial relationship. Key expertise include: - Gas turbine noise prediction and modellingservices to the - Airframe aerodynamics and aero-acousticsaerospace sector. - Flight simulation through the Microsoft Institute for High - Anechoic chamber noise testing Performance Computing - Psychoacoustics and trade-offs - Multi-disciplinary design optimisationWe provide the - Aerodynamics, turbulence and flow experimentation and modellingideas, solutions - Autonomous air vehicle design and build - Wind tunnels and flight simulation test facilitiesand talent tomeets the needsof aviation, spaceand defence in the21st century. Airports, ATM & operations Electrical power systems & electronics Through multi-disciplinary collaboration we provide business We have a broad portfolio of capabilities across electricalCome and discuss analysis, modelling and optimisation expertise. This enables us to power systems, electronics and sensing. We develop market-your challenges deliver value for our partners in many areas including: leading technology through fundamental modelling, practical experimentation and product development. Example researchand ambitions - Statistical analysis of air traffic delay at airports themes include:with our team of - Movement scheduling to optimise runway capacity - Forecasting demand and spares stock-holding policy - Applied Electromagnetismexperts. - Modelling retail impact of airport check-in procedures - High Voltage Engineering - Price and carbon cost modelling - Nanomaterials and Dielectrics - Robotics and Control - Superconductivity - Micro Electronic Mechanisms (MEMS) Equipment health management & prognostics Human factors We combine electrical systems, sensing, computational and We cover many aspects of Human Factors and our facilities materials technologies to enable the reliable monitoring and have been pioneering research for over 40 years. ISVR’s Human prediction of component health and failure. Examples of work Factors Research Unit and theTransport Research Group cover include: such areas as: - Health monitoring of new generation aircraft bearings - Subjective responses - Microfluidic devices for structural health monitoring and integrity - Biodynamic responses - Health effects - Motion sickness - Cockpit Ergonomics - Human responses to combined noise and vibration Image courtesy of Rolls-Royce
