30 year anniversary of AVC Group

The Active Noise and Vibration Control (ANVC) group was established by Prof. Colin Hansen in 1987 with a grant from the Sir Ross and Sir Keith Smith fund for fundamental studies leading to a system to actively control aircraft cabin noise. The aim of the group was to undertake fundamental and applied research in active noise and vibration control and to apply the results of research to the development of commercial controllers and to the installation of practical systems in industry. Since then, the research activities of the group have expanded to encompass a wide range of research topics, and the name of the group changed to Acoustics, Vibration, and Control (AVC) Group.
