Congratulations to Dr. Alex Carr on Defending his Ph.D.

My graduate student, Alex Carr, defended his dissertation on sonic boom through the turbulent atmosphere. Title: SONIC BOOM PROPAGATION IN THE TURBULENT ATMOSPHERIC BOUNDARY LAYER Abstract: Sonic boom waveforms measured at ground level exhibit variability due to scattering and diffraction caused by the presence of turbulence in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL). Sonic boom propagation …

Congratulations to Dr. Jianhui Cheng on Defending her Ph.D.

I’m pleased to see my student Dr. Jianhui Cheng defend her Ph.D. successfully at University of Florida. Title: THE APPLICATION OF INSTABILITY WAVE THEORY ON ACOUSTIC RADIATION WITHIN OFF-DESIGN SUPERSONIC JETS AND ON TWO-POINT STATISTICS WITHIN HIGH-SPEED FLOW OVER SHARP AND BLUNT CONES WITH PLASMA ACTUATION Abstract: The intense noise generated by large-scale turbulent structures …
