At UNSW, our expertise in engineering systems includes acoustics, noise generated by flow, vibration, condition monitoring and wear. We perform fundamental and applied research to create novel solutions for industry and society.
Our specialties include:
The Flow Noise Group is dedicated to the study of flow-induced noise and its control. Flow-induced noise occurs wherever there is unsteady fluid flow and must be controlled to reduce environmental noise pollution. Our knowledge and skills help quieten technologies such as jets, wind turbines, drones and propellers.
The Acoustics and Vibration Group uses analytical and numerical methods to study the interaction between sound waves and structures. We consider multidisciplinary problems that include acoustics, vibration, fluid flow, fluid-structure interaction and metamaterials.
NSW Tribology and Machine Condition Monitoring Group has extensive experience in condition monitoring of mechanical systems and components. We develop innovative solutions for tracking and predicting the evolution of wear and fatigue in machine components.
