The School of Engineering at Trinity College ranks in the top 1% of global rankings for citations of published research work. The school has a long history of engagement in European research, in particular in the aircraft noise problem. Through TCD the knowledge and expertise of over 30 years of European research into aircraft noise can be brought to bear on the design, manufacture and analysis in the AERIALIST project increasing the potential of the design to meet long term objectives set for European aviation. The AERIALIST project will comprise team members from the Fluids, Vibration & Acoustics (FVA) and Manufacturing Technology & Systems (MTS) Research Groups from the School of Engineering. The FVA group has been conducting research for over 30 years on modelling and analysis of flow/structure interaction including aero-acoustics and vibro-acoustics. The group has developed specialised signal processing methods for unsteady measurements of flow parameters in wind tunnels and the use of these together with microphone array measurements enables aero-acoustic source mechanisms to be identified for both experimental and numerical data. The group has developed a number of in house codes relating to propeller, jet and landing gear noise problems through participation in completed EU projects. The group is associated with the X-Noise Thematic network as the Irish national contact point and have participated in all the framework programmes with aircraft noise projects including ARITIC, ALLEGRA, WENEMOR, TEENI, COJEN, JEAN, HISAC, NACRE, SILENCER, ROSAS, ENABLE, APIAN, BRAIN, ASANCA and SNAAP. The research interests of the MTS group include grinding, forming, high speed machining and joining, and the processing and characterisation of polymers and polymer-matrix composites. As well as these core themes, the group undertakes research in the areas of micro-manufacturing including micro-form-rolling, micro-feature characterisation of grinding tools, process monitoring in micro machining and polymer-clay nanocomposite development. Active areas are also Cold Spray, Additive Manufacturing – 3D printing and solidification modelling of complex alloys to include TiAl. Applications span automotive, aerospace, construction, biodegradable packaging and plastics recycling through to ICT and biomedical technologies.
