phenomenon. From 1997 to 2004 he worked in the Hydroacoustics group at Electric Boat Corporation and has been with Alion Science and Technology since then. He has performed analysis work for all current U.S. Navy submarine classes, the DD(X) surface ship program, and various ONR and DARPA studies. His areas of expertise include the prediction of flow induced noise, acoustic analysis of advanced turbomachinery, vortex shedding, and computational fluid dynamics.
NCAD Per Bruel Award The PER BRUEL GOLD MEDAL FOR NOISE CONTROL AND ACOUSTICS was established in honor of Dr. Per Bruel, who pioneered the development of sophisticated noise and vibration measuring and processing equipment. The medal recognizes eminent achievement and extraordinary merit in the field of noise control and acoustics, including useful applications of the principles of noise control and acoustics to the art and science of mechanical engineering.
