Dynamic Modelling

Models are required to predict the dynamic behaviour of systems not only in acoustics and vibration but in applications including biomechanics, control simulations, damage detection, fatigue predictions, etc. These have been developed for a very wide range of systems, both linear and nonlinear, and in the time, frequency and wavenumber (space) domains.

Often the modelling is driven by the application being considered and the requirements of either simulating, predicting or validating approaches that may be experimental, numerical or other modelling techniques.   With an appropriate model, showing the relationship between the physical parameters and the response of a system, one achieves improved understanding of the underlying mechanisms.  It is then possible to consider the effects of  changes which might be possible and potential passive or active control measures.  The Group has undertaken the following activities in this field:
