Research Group: Dynamics Group

Currently Active: 

The Dynamics Group has a wide range of interests in the modelling, measurement and control of structural vibrations, vibroacoustic response and biodynamics. Our activities cover the whole spectrum, from fundamental theoretical studies, through the development of numerical tools and experimental measurement techniques. We have fostered close collaborations with industry, which underpin our research in applications such as noise and vibration of transportation vehicles (rail, road, aerospace), human response to vibration, and condition monitoring of infrastructure.

Our laboratories, which incorporate the renowned Human Factors Research Unit (HFRU), contain an extensive range of equipment for vibration measurement, testing and analysis. We work closely with colleagues in ISVR Consulting and contribute to a number of short courses for industry concerning vibration modelling, measurement and control.
