New FWF stand-alone project for Dr. Philip LEDERER

Dr. Philip LEDERER was granted an FWF stand-alone project for his proposal on High-Fidelity and Efficient Direct Aeroacoustic Simulations (FWF grant P35931).

The goal of the project High-Fidelity and Efficient Direct Aeroacoustic Simulations (DREAM) is to develop a deeper understanding of the causes and effects of aeroacoustic phenomena, thus the propagation of sound waves, which are generated by aerodynamic effects. Examples are given by the flow around the wing of an airplane, the flow around buildings or bridges by the wind, or the generation of a sound with an organ.

The complex correlations between sound waves (specified by pressure and density variations), flow velocity and temperature are described by the compressible Navier-Stokes equations (NSE). Since an exact solution of the NSE is often not given, we aim to propose a novel Finite-Element scheme within the Finite-Element software NGSolve.

Philip Lederer received his PhD in 2019 at the TU Wien. After a subsequent postdoc at the Aalto University in Finland 2021/2022 he will return to the TU Wien as the PI of the above FWF stand-alone project DREAM, which will be carried out in close cooperation with the research group of Prof. Antonio Huerta from the Universitat Polit├Ęcnica de Catalunya, Spain (UPC).

The Institute of Analysis and Scientific Computing congratulates Philip on securing this grant. We are pleased to welcome you back at TU Wien!
