Noack 教授在2022世界无人机大会做主题演讲


Noack 教授在湍流控制领域是享誉国内外的专家,请介绍下您目前的研究项目?

Professor Noack,you are well known for your achievement in turbulence control. Could you give a brief introduction for your current research project?

Noack 教授:


Any high-speed transport vehicle, like car, truck, train and airplane, spends most of its propulsion energy to overcome aerodynamic drag. This drag originates from the turbulent flow over the vehicle. 


We change this turbulent flow with small devices, called actuators and sensors, to achieve significant drag reduction and thus increase the range and reduced the energy consumption of the vehicle. 


In fact, we are a world leading team in this drag reduction technology. This technology can also be used to increase lift of airfoils, improve the energy harvesting of wind turbines, make combustion processes more effective and much more.

We have learned that you are now a supervisor for research teams. Could you share something about the current progress that your teams have achieved?

Noack 教授:

Our focus is aerodynamic optimization for green transport. Our most recent breakthrough is a smart skin drag reduction technology. A thin “dress” of AI-controlled actuators and on a rearward side of a car, drone or air taxi can significantly reduce drag and improve aerodynamic forces. 



This drag reduction technology can be customized to engineering demands. For instance, the easiest implementation has negligible weight and requires no energy for good aerodynamic effects. Currently, such flow control technology is worldwide unique. 


We have a number of other projects, e.g. artificial intelligence methods for modeling vehicle aerodynamics, landing of drones/air taxis on or in buildings under gusty wind conditions, etc.



Is there any difficulty that your team and you have come across during the process of your research? 

Noack 教授:


Turbulence control is particularly difficult because it relies on vast engineering knowledge, physical understanding and face large mathematical and hardware challenges. 


The interdisciplinary challenge of turbulence control is establishing a world-class team and collaborative network addressing a rich set of engineering, physical and mathematical problems. Engineering research implies pushing the frontiers of the possible, demonstrating performance benefits which have not been realized before.

我们团队拥有超过 30 年的学术和工业经验,与数百位国内外研究者合作,因此在该领域的创新性研究上具有独特的优势。 

We have over 30 years of academic and industrial experience with hundreds of collaborators and are thus uniquely positioned to innovate the field.

In what field will your research findings be applied to? Is there any opportunity or challenge for the development of the industry concerning about the application?

Noack 教授:


We believe that our AI-based turbulence control technology will enjoy a huge range of applications in the coming years and decades, from cars, trains, aircraft, combustion, chemical processes, thermal management, just to name a few.


In fact, first versions of our German collaborators are already applied on civil aircraft and wind turbines.

Our focus in China will be air taxis, drones and cars.


The implementation has two steps. In the first you demonstrate a performance benefit in experiment. This creates collaborative opportunities. And in the second step you address numerous constraints of the industrial partner. This is the challenging part which requires effort and patience on both sides.

In what way and to what extent has your program combined with industry and education?

Noack 教授:


Since over 20 years, I am investing in the education of future engineers and scholars of green transport.

Noack 教授出版的部分著作

我提炼和简化了一套的成功的湍流控制方法,并在中国、欧洲、美国、加拿大和澳大利亚的一流大学开设课程。我们编写了2本高引用量的Springer 教科书,3本其他书籍以及3篇领域综述文章。在哈尔滨工业大学(深圳),我专门开设了关于人工智能方法的课程。

I am distilling and simplifying the most successful turbulence control methods in courses delivered at leading Universities in China, Europe, USA, Canada and Australia. We have written 2 highly cited Springer textbooks and 3 other books and 3 review articles. At Harbin Institute of Technology, I specifically teach artificial intelligence methods in engineering. 


Artificial intelligence makes many engineering tasks much easier.

Recently, Shenzhen UAV Industry Association has hired you as the expert in the committee. In what way will bilateral cooperation be carried out in the future?

Noack 教授:


Shenzhen UAV Industry Association connects us with Chinese applicants and producers of drones and air taxis through their vast knowledge and international events.


In return, we present the aerodynamic progress on their fori. We are building a unique aerodynamic drone testing laboratory in HIT in collaboration with the association.
