Event details

The Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) is pleased to announce that the Eleventh International Conference on Recent Advances in Structural Dynamics will be held at the University of Pisa, Italy, on 1-3 July 2013. The first conference of the series was held in 1980. This conference is devoted to theoretical, numerical and experimental developments in structural dynamics and their application to all types of structures and dynamical systems. The conference will reflect the state-of-the-art of structural dynamics and dynamical systems in science and engineering practice and is an opportunity to exchange scientific, technical and experimental ideas. There will be five keynote lectures and parallel technical sessions. All submitted papers will be peer reviewed

Submission of abstracts – deadline extended to October 15th


Objectives of the Conference

The Conference aims to bring together researchers and practising engineers from different branches of engineering to discuss recent advances in theoretical and experimental techniques for solving problems in structural dynamics and dynamical systems.

Who should attend

Research workers and engineers involved in any area of structural dynamics and dynamical systems. 

Conference themes

Papers are invited in any area of structural dynamics and dynamical systems. Session titles are as follows: 

  • Active vibration control and smart structures
  • Analytical modelling
  • Civil Engineering structures
  • Earthquake engineering
  • Energy harvesting
  • Experimental methods
  • Fluid- structure interaction
  • Human structure interaction
  • Modal analysis and structural modification
  • Nonlinear vibrations
  • Numerical techniques
  • Dynamics of offshore structures
  • Stochastic dynamics and random vibrations
  • Structural health monitoring
  • System identification and inverse problems
  • Uncertain dynamical systems
  • Vibro-acoustics
  • Vibration control
  • Workshop (structural response and life prediction for reuseable hypersonic platform)

Special Technical Session

A highlight of RASD 2013 will be a special session on aero-structures for reusable hypersonic platforms, following by a moderated discussion on relevant unsolved technical challenges. See 'Useful Downloads' for PDF document.
