Dr Evangelos Ntotsios is Research Fellow within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Dr Evangelos Ntotsios is currently appointed as a Research Fellow in the Dynamics Group within ISVR at the University of Southampton, working in the project MOTIV (Modelling Of Train Induced Vibrations). Prior to joining the University of Southampton, Evangelos undertook eighteen months of post-doctoral research at the Scholl of Civil and Building Engineering at Loughborough University. Evangelos received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Thessaly (Greece) in 2010 where the main focus of his work has been on system identification methods using vibration measurements.

Research project(s)

Modelling Of Train Induced Vibration (MOTIV)

MOTIV is a project funded by EPSRC and it aims to develop a better understanding about key issues regarding the generation and propagation of railway vibration, namely the non-linear behaviour of tracks’ elements and the dynamic soil-tunnel-pile interaction for a single as well as a twin tunnels. This will lead to improved models for the prediction of ground-borne vibration and noise from railways in order to reduce prediction uncertainty.
