Dr. Anastasios Lyrintzis
Purdue University

Dr. Lyrintzis joined Purdue University in 1994 as an Associate Professor and was promoted to Professor in 2002. He served seven years on the faculties of University of Minnesota, Cornell, and Syracuse University. His research interests are computational aeroacoustics and aerodynamics. His goal is to investigate noise reduction for rotorcraft and jet flows. Dr. Lyrintzis was a member of the award-winning (NASA, AHS) Tiltrotor Aeroacoustic Code (TRAC) system developed by NASA Langley. He has written 44 journal papers and 72 conference papers. He has been awarded several external grants (including grants from NASA, Sikorsky Aircraft Company, and the Indiana 21st Century Research and Technology Fund) and has consulted with OAI. He has advised or co-advised nine Ph.D. and ten M.S. students. He has also been a member of the AIAA Aeroacoustics Technical Committee, the AHS Acoustics Committee, and the ASME Coordinating Group for CFD. He has organized several sessions and forums at AIAA, ASME, and AHS Conferences. Dr. Lyrintzis is a registered Professional Engineer, an AIAA Associate Fellow, and a Boeing Welliver Fellow. Dr. Lyrintzis has had substantial experience developing Kirchhoff/FWH codes for the last 15 years. He has pioneered the use of Kirchhoff's method in rotorcraft aeroacoustics and jet aeroacoustics and has several review articles on the method.
