Frontiers of aeroacoustics research: theory, computation and experiment

The Philosophical Transactions A issue on “Frontiers of aeroacoustics research: theory, computation and experiment” will be available online on 14 October 2019. Aeroacoustics studies noise generated by aerodynamic flows. Founded on fluid mechanics and applied mathematics, and relying increasingly upon computational modelling, aeroacoustics has grown into a discipline with its own key ... [more]

Making a splash is all in the angle

Making a splash depends on the angle of a liquid as it hits and moves along a surface, according to a new study from Queen Mary University of London. If a droplet hits a dry solid surface fast enough it will splash and being able to predict a splash is ... [more]
