This area involves study and research in theoretical, computational, and experimental structural dynamics. Included are aeroelasticity, linear and nonlinear structural system identification, structural acoustics, and computational techniques for very-large-scale vibration analysis.
Computational facilities include numerous computer servers and workstations, and experimental facilities include actuators and sensors and several data-acquisition systems for structural system identification and control. Wind tunnel facilities are available for testing aeroelastic models.
