Ontario-based organizations taking leadership roles in CARIC projects

in News

CARIC is pleased to announce the launch of its first research project led by two Ontario organizations. The kickoff meeting of the ENV-715 project, entitled “Development and Evaluation of Noise Measurement Techniques in Low-and High-Speed Wind Tunnel” was held on February 1, 2016 in Ottawa.

The three-year project is led, on the academic side, by Joana Rocha from Carleton University and on the industry side, by Stephen Colavincenzo based at Bombardier’s Toronto facility. MDS Aero Support Corporation, Université de Sherbrooke and the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies are the other partners in this project, aimed at investigating various measurement techniques of wall-pressure fluctuations induced by turbulent flow and of noise in wind tunnel environments.

Through this research project, both Bombardier and MDS Aero Support Corporation will develop improved measurement techniques of wall-pressure fluctuations induced by turbulent flow that will contribute towards the optimization of product designs. Also involved in this project will be four graduate students who will greatly benefit from strong interactions with the industrial partners.
