Dynamics & Vibration


Dynamics and vibrations are integral parts of understanding many physical systems and technologies – everything from MEMS sensors and devices to air and space structures to the development of novel materials.  

We use advanced computation and measurement techniques to create accurate dynamic models, then apply those models to a broad range of problems in dynamics (e.g. system identification, sensing and damage detection, acoustic signal processing). Our researchers to tackle both applied and fundamental problems in linear and nonlinear dynamics.
