This volume consists of papers originally presented at a Symposium in November 2009 at the University of Southampton, in honour of the life and work of Professor Geoffrey Lilley. Selected for this volume are the papers specific to aeroacoustics, covering aerodynamic noise theory, airframe noise, flow control, and experimental jet noise studies.
The International Journal of Aeroacoustics will publish developments in all areas of fundamental and applied aeroacoustics. Fundamental topics include advances in understanding aeroacoustics phenomena; applied topics include all aspects of civil and military aircraft, automobile and high speed train aeroacoustics, and the impact of acoustics on structures.Subtopics include, among others, jet mixing noise; screech tones; broadband shock associated noise and methods for suppression; the near-ground acoustic environment of Short Take-Off and Vertical Landing (STOVL) aircraft; weapons bay aeroacoustics, cavity acoustics, closed-loop feedback control of aeroacoustic phenomena; computational aeroacoustics including high fidelity numerical simulations, and analytical acoustics.
Currently, the literature on flow control is spread over several journals - AIAA Journal, Journal of Aircraft, ASME/JSME Journal of Fluids Engineering, Physics of Fluids, Experiments in Fluids, Int. J. of Heat and Fluid Flow Gas Turbine Engineering, Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Combustion Science and Technology, SAE, etc. It is the objective of this International Journal of Flow Control to provide a forum for publication of articles covering all of the above areas in one place and is hoped that this will increase the cross-pollination of ideas on flow control into the various sub-disciplines.

Computational Aeroacoustics (CAA) deals with the simulation of sound generated by unsteady flows and is a rapidly growing area due to advances in computational power and the significant projected growth in global transportation. With the era of widespread supersonic flight and the proliferation of general aviation aircraft on future horizons, the noise generated by aircraft is of great concern for communities near airports, for passengers in the aircrafts cabin, and for the structural integrity of the airframe.
This journal covers the innovative developments of aerospace technologies. Including: new shock wave assisted applications in the area of medicine; drug delivery systems; bio-technology; manufacturing industry; space solar power systems; energy storage systems; fuels cells; use of supercomputers; development of transdisciplinary computational techniques; and cryogenic applications.
The occurrence of thermo-acoustic instabilities, popularly known as combustion instabilities, has been a plaguing problem in the development of combustors for rockets, jet engines, power generating gas turbines and process or domestic heaters. Significant advances in understanding and controlling combustion instability is critical for pushing the operating envelope of the existing installations, and in avoiding delays and cost overruns in development programmes. The International Journal of Spray and Combustion Dynamics will publish developments covering fundamental and applied research in combustion and spray dynamics. Fundamental topics include advances in understanding unsteady combustion, combustion instability and noise, and flame-acoustic interaction and its active and passive control. Applied topics include all aspects of combustion instabilities in solid and liquid rocket motors and gas turbine combustors, combustion noise, pulse detonation engines, active control of combustion instabilities and active control of sprays. As well as original contributions, state of the art reviews and surveys will be published.
The demand for small unmanned air vehicles, commonly termed micro air vehicles, is rapidly increasing. Driven by applications ranging from civil search-and-rescue missions to military surveillance missions, there is a rising level of interest and investment in better vehicle designs, and miniaturized components are enabling many rapid advances. The role of the International Journal of Micro Air Vehicle Research is to provide the scientific and engineering community with a resource dedicated to publishing high-quality technical articles summarizing both fundamental and applied research in this field.

Jet Aeroacoustics is a growing area, a function of the significant projected growth in global air transportation. With the era of widespread supersonic flight and the proliferation of general aviation aircraft on future horizons, the noise generated by the high speed flow from aircraft engine exhaust is of great concern for communities near airports, for passengers in the aircrafts cabin, and for the structural integrity of the airframe. The book includes developments in the area of jet aeroacoustics theory, computations and experiments. Topics include: jet noise theories, simulation methodologies, predicting noise from complex geometries, design of jet noise facilities and jet noise measurements.
