Research project: Safeguarding museum objects from shock and vibration during transit

Currently Active: 

Artefacts are frequently moved within and between museums and are consequently exposed to vibration and shock during transit. Little research has been conducted into the dynamic properties of 3D objects and their potential for damage when mechanically stimulated.  This PhD project aims to quantify the effects of vibration and shock on museum objects, provide a scientifically informed framework by which objects are judged fit to travel, and investigate the applicability of advanced technologies for vibration and shock isolation.  The project is a close collaboration with The British Museum and is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
