My name is Leandro Castelucci and - as Italian as my name sounds - I am from Brazil. I graduated in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of São Paulo in 2017, when I started my internship at EMBRAER (aircraft maintenance). Following the end of my contract, I started my Master Thesis in Aircraft Propulsion and Aeroacoustics. This sparkled my interest for science and research, mainly in Acoustics, which has a huge gap as for today. 
One of my internships (in 2015) was on AIRBUS D.S. - Friedrichshafen, Germany - where I've worked on hardware development for the Fluid Science department of the ISS. This opportunity showed me a glimpse of not only the Aerospace industry, but also the life in Europe. The opportunity of doing a PhD in this amazing place drove me to come back and work now on the extension of my research in Brazil.

Here in the UT I am a member of the Department of Thermal and Fluid Engineering (TFE), on the Engineering Fluid Dynamics group. My research is focused on Propeller noise and Performance, P ropeller and general Acoustics and the effects of complex integrations of propulsion-airframe on noise and performance (for future generation aircraft).

Courses academic year 2023/2024

Courses in the current academic year are added at the moment they are finalised in the Osiris system. Therefore it is possible that the list is not yet complete for the whole academic year.

Enabling Optimized D isruptiv e airframe-propulsion integration concepts

ENODISE is an enabler project aimed at reducing aircraft gaseous and noise emissions by improving the integration of the propulsion system with the airframe. Complex aerodynamic and acoustic engine-airframe interactions are involved, which must be better understood to yield the expected gains. ENODISE will investigate the main propulsion-airframe integration issues at low TRL and build a solid basis of knowledge and methods based on simplified but representative configurations, permitting to assess a variety of integration concepts.
