Structural Dynamics

testing rotor bladesThis 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.
