Project description, objectives and results:
AeroTraNet 2 is a Marie Curie Action of the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme. It trains 9 Early Stage Researchers and 2 Experienced Researchers in front-line, integrated, industry relevant research in unsteady aerodynamics and noise for the next generation of environmentally friendly wide-body civil aircraft. AeroTraNet 2 clusters the complementary expertise of 5 established European academic institutes (University of Leicester , University of Greenwich, University of Roma TRE, Von Karman Institute, Institut de Mechanique des fluides de Toulouse),  2 European multi-national companies (AIRBUS, ALSTOM), 1 Small and Medium Enterprise (Cerfacs), and one national research (CNR INSEAN) centre to offer structured, flexible, well-integrated, doctoral and post-doctoral training programme for the new generation of aerodynamics and noise specialists. CNR INSEAN addresses the common objective of modelling shock cell noise in a wide-body aircraft engine configuration from AIRBUS by the development of advanced laser-based measurement techniques for aeroacoustic analysis in a transonic jet.
