Yueping Guo

Visiting Professor

Dr. Guo was educated in Tsinghua University in Beijing, majored in Fluid Mechanics, and did his Ph.D. on Aeroacoustics in Cambridge University in England. Dr. Guo has been known in the aeroacoustics community for his research in a variety of subjects, ranging from his Ph.D. study on ocean waves and oceanic noise, to his post-doctoral research on bubbles and rain drops, to his contributions to structural acoustics for underwater vehicles when he worked in MIT as a research professor, and to his state-of-the-art theory on airframe noise prediction when he worked in Boeing as a Technical Fellow. His current research focuses on aircraft noise, covering aircraft noise prediction, advanced measurement technology, unsteady flow simulation, noise reduction, aircraft system noise, aeroacoustic loads, and advanced concepts and technologies. His theory for airframe noise prediction has been used world-wide by various industries, research organizations and academia. Dr. Guo is a leading figure in acoustic technology for advanced aircraft, with significant contributions in the assessment of system noise and the development of noise reduction concepts for advanced platforms such as the Hybrid-Wing-Body (HWB) aircraft, open rotor propulsion, and in general, advanced engine/airframe integration. Dr. Guo is currently the president of NEAT Consulting, a technology consulting company, based in California, USA (www.neat-consulting.com ).
