Dynamics group

Modelling

Our group's research covers a wide range of interests in the modelling, measurement and control of structural vibrations.

About

We work with industry specialists to study noise and vibration of transportation vehicles, human response to vibration, and condition monitoring of infrastructure.  

Our main research activities are:  

  • dynamic modelling  
  • high-frequency vibrations   
  • human factors research unit  
  • railway noise and vibration  
  • condition monitoring  

Our laboratories incorporate the Human Factors Research Unit (HFRU). This contains a range of equipment for vibration measurement, testing and analysis.  

Through our work with colleagues at ISVR Consulting, we contribute to a number of short courses for industry on vibration modelling, measurement and control.
