Planned Activities for 2011:
In 2011, the TCSA is planning to sponsor the same five symposia that were held in 2010, as well as a new symposium topic of Acoustic Propagation in Porous Media that is being organized by Liang Wu Cai and Sue Sung. The other five symposia are
General Structural Vibration and Acoustics will be organized by Steve A. Hambric and Liang Wu Cai, Phononic Materials and Acoustic Meta‐Materials will be organized by Liang Wu Cai and Mahmould I. Hussein, Numerical Methods in Vibrations and Acoustics will be organized by Lonny Thompson and Rui M. Botelho, Noise, Vibration, and Reliability in Vehicle Systems (in lieu of Noise, Vibration, Fatigue and Atmospheric Propagation) will be organized by Xu Wang from RMIT University Australia and Sue Sung, and, Smart/Functionally Graded Materials for Applications in Vibrations and Noise will be organized by Sue Sung and Liang Wu Cai. The TCSA welcomes ASME Members and colleagues to contribute papers to these symposia 2011 another successful year for the NCAD.
Dr. Sung received her BS degree in Civil Engineering from National Taiwan University. She received MS and PhD degrees in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from Purdue University. After graduation from Purdue, Sue worked at General Motors Research & Development Center in Warren, Michigan until her retirement in 2008. At GM R&D Center, she conducted research to develop structural‐acoustic finite element methods for vehicle noise and vibration design for which received the GM Campell and McCuen Awards for research innovation
and product applications.
Dr. Sung is an ASME
Technical Sub‐Committee Committee.
Fellow and has authored numerous technical one of the founding members of ASME NCAD is also a member of ASME Design Technical
Aero/Hydro Acoustics Committee Chair: Kristin Cody, firstname.lastname@example.org
The goal of the Technical Committee on Aero/Hydro Acoustics is to increase the understanding of mechanisms related to both sound and vibrations that are produced, and propagated, in air, water, or both (e.g. multi‐phase flows). This covers a wide range of sources and applications that are of interest to the academic community as well as industry. Specific interests include source mechanisms, flow over internal and external features, turbomachinery noise, flow tones and fluid instabilities, measurement and analysis techniques, fluid‐structure interaction, and mitigation methods. Computational, analytical, and experimental methods are all welcome. Accomplishments from 2010:
The Technical Committee on Aero/Hydro Acoustics had a good presence at the IMECE. Dr. Charlie Zheng of Kansas State University presented a workshop on sonic booms and its effect on the
