Dr. Julian Winkler’s current research interest at Boston University focuses on the direct numerical simulation (DNS) of airfoil noise in collaboration with Prof. S. Grace (Boston University), Prof. S. Moreau (Université de Sherbrooke, Canada), and Dr. R. Sandberg (University of Southampton, UK). Dr. Winkler’s previous research at the University of Siegen, Germany, included low-speed fan design and simulation, small aeroacoustic wind-tunnel design, airfoil unsteady flow and noise measurements, airfoil noise prediction using large-eddy simulation (LES), and the investigation of turbomachinery noise reduction using a technique called trailing-edge blowing. Prior to his research interests in aeroacoustics, Dr. Winkler has worked on two-phase flow void fraction modeling in microchannels for compact heat transfer devices (Georgia Institute of Technology), combustion process simulations in Diesel engines (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University), sustainable energy utilization concepts and projects for developing countries (University of Portsmouth, UK), and reverse logistics in environmental economics (University of Siegen, Germany).
