This lecture priliminary deals with transient processes with a special focus on aeroelastics and aeroacoustics of turbomachinery and gas turbines. For the design and safe operation of aircraft engines several effects like flutter, forced response and the sound generation and propagation are relevant. Within the scope of this lecture these topics were discussed extensively. Firstly, the main physically phenomena and theoretical basics of the together interacting topics structure, airflow, sound waves and Vibro-Acoustics are discussed. Secondly, the theoretical explained physics are shown by selected experimental examples. The lecture is intended for students, who have interest in work with promising multidisciplinary challenges.
