New Data released in Transonic Aerodynamics
In wind-tunnel testing, transition fixing is primarily employed to provide a boundary layer that is more representative of the full-scale condition (usually fully turbulent on a swept wing) when a test is conducted at a lower Reynolds number. In transonic wind-tunnel testing there may be particular requirements for appropri... Read more...More Product Announcements from IHS ESDU

An important application of Statistical Energy Analysis is the prediction of the noise in a space, such as an aircraft interior, where the noise is caused by structural vibration. The aircraft interior is treated as an acoustic space, or enclosure, in which there are fluctuations in fluid pressure. The modal density of the acoustic spaces is required in SEA estimations.
