The Aerospace Department at the University of Bristol is one of the largest departments in the UK and benefits greatly from from the concentration of aerospace industry in the south-west of England. The key feature of the Department’s research is its close links with the industry, including Airbus, Rolls-Royce, AgustaWestland, BAE Systems, Embraer, Vestas, etc. Some of these research links have led to the establishment of formal technology partnerships, such as the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre in Composites, the AgustaWestland Helicopters University Technology Centre in Vibration, and a composites technology partnership with Vestas Wind Systems. The result of this close relationship with industry, associated with substantial research funding from other UK and EU sources, is that the Department’s research is industrially relevant and at the leading edge of the aerospace sector as reflected by the high proportion of research found to be internationally excellent and world-leading in the 2008 UK Government Research Assessment Exercise. The department is also considered as one of the UK’s most successful groups with a strong track record of securing funding from EU H2020 and CleanSky. The Faculty of Engineering has recently (2014-2016) invested over £1.3 million in the design and build of a new state-of-the-art aeroacoustics facility. The facility is equipped with PIV, LDV and hotwire system for all necessary flow and turbulence measurements. The facility is also equipped with a far-field microphone array (25 microphones) and source location studies can be performed using UoB’s 48-channel beamforming array. The aeroacoustics group at UBristol has developed strong expertise in theoretical and experimental aeroacoustics and turbulence and is now covering a wide range of topics, such as aerofoil noise control using passive and active methods, morphing, porous materials, unsteady flow control techniques, beamforming, drag reduction techniques, etc..
