Main research topics in the Vibrations Department
The Vibrations Department is divided into the following main areas of research:
Structural Health Monitoring & Acoustics
The aim of dynamic condition analysis in civil engineering is a non-destructive, quick and reliable determination of the current state of a vibrating structure. To this end, automated methods for damage detection, localisation and quantification are being developed and applied to real structures.
In the field of acoustics, research on mathematical models for sound propagation and sound mitigation concepts is carried out.
Coupled Dynamic Systems
From a scientific point of view, the development of efficient parameterized simulation models for complex structures under acceptable calculation times is a special challenge. In the working group, both probabilistic and deterministic models for coupled dynamic systems, such as, for example, supporting structures for offshore wind turbines, are being developed, verified and validated by measuring data.
