Plenary Lecture

 Some progress in the acoustic design of aircraft engine


Xiaofeng Sun is professor of Aerospace Engineering at the Beihang University, and in 2000, Prof. Sun was elected as a distinguished professor of the Chang Jiang Scholars Program. He received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from BUAA in 1988, his M.S. (1985) and B.S. (1982) in Mechanical Engineering from the Shanghai Jiao Tong University. His principal fields of interest include unsteady flows in turbomachinery, vortex dynamics, and aeroacoustics. The work includes experimental, theoretical, and computational investigations into vortex sound interactions, flow stabilities in compressors, control of blade flutter, and acoustic design of aeroengine nacelles as well as various strategies for fan and compressor noise reduction. He has published two books and more than 100 technical papers in the fields of aeroacoustics and unsteady flow of turbomachinery. He was the recipient of the National Science Funds for Distinguished Young Scholars in 1999. He is now a member of the International Advisory Committee of the Gas Turbine Society of Japan, and a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of AIAA Journal of Propulsion and Power. Currently, he is the Editor-in-Chief of Chinese Journal of Aeronautics, and from 2016, he serves as the board director of Aero Engine Corporation of China (AECC).
