On December 1, 2011, the FlowAirS project began as part of the 7th Research and Development Framework Program. This project is a European research training network that aims to train high-level researchers and develop new methods of reducing flow noise in aeraular ducts in the transport, construction and energy sectors.
This project is led by European university laboratories, including the Acoustic Laboratory of the University of Maine which is piloting the project, and industrialists such asAudi, Airbus, Bombardier, Scania, LMS,... A total of 11 theses over a period of three years and 5 one-year studies carried out by post-docs are programmed.
Research topics of particular interest to CETIATinclude fan broadband noise generation, flow noise generated by speakers silencers, and driving noise reduction techniques using next-generation absorbent materials, including metamaterials.
As a partner, CETIAT will be able to temporarily welcome PhD students working on this project.
