Advances in Aeroacoustics

2010-06-01
The importance of aeroacoustics for the aerospace industry cannot be underestimated. It is vital in terms of traveler comfort, environmental perception and industry expansion. This special edition of the International Journal of Aeroacoustics contains 12 papers originally presented at the Noise & Turbulence: Perspectives Past & Present Symposium (2009: University of Southampton). The symposium was held in honor of Professor Geoffrey M. Lilley, a multi-faceted educator and researcher. Selected are the papers specific to aeroacoustics covering aerodynamic noise theory, airframe noise, flow control, and experimental jet noise studies. Topics include a brief biography of Lilley, the relation between the generalized acoustic analogy and Lilley's contributions to aeronautics, solving the Lilley equation with quadrupole and dipole jet noise sources, hot jets and sources of jet noise, wave packet modules for large-scale mixing noise, and plasma actuators for noise control.

Factory Man

2009-02-16
Factory Man is about James Harbour and the epic struggle of the U.S. auto industry to catch up to Japan in quality and productivity. Harbour is a former manufacturing executive who, partly by chance, became the first U.S. expert to study Toyota's operations in Japan. Harbour's consulting firm, Harbour & Associates has gained worldwide recognition for its annual public studies of factory productivity. The Harbour Report is the essential annual scorecard of who is winning the productivity race in the U.S. In 1981, Harbour reported that Toyota could offer a small car for sale in the U.S. at a production cost of $1,500-$1,700 less than the Detroit automakers at that time, a cost advantage of about 30 percent. The impact on Detroit was atomic, and launched the painful, historic effort by the Big Three to catch up, which continues today. James Harbour's story, blunt and accessible, includes a detailed description of how Detroit went astray, beginning right after World War II.
