Dynamics and Vibrations
In the area of dynamics and vibrations, close interaction with industry, and particularly the automotive, rotorcraft, and wind energy industries, has been nurtured worldwide for many years through collaborative contracts or projects and consulting agreements. Most of research efforts are at the intersection of academic exploration and applied practical research, with the objective to understand and optimize the behavior of complex, multidisciplinary mechanical systems. Mathematical analysis, advanced computational modeling, and experiments are developed to generate the necessary insight. The laboratories in this group have assembled specialized experimental facilities that are unique worldwide.
