System Dynamics Control and Modeling and Simulation

This cluster investigates fundamental theories and computational methodologies that are used in (computer aided) analysis of multi-body systems. The research is based on analytical formulation of dynamics equations for multi-body systems as well as the utilization of numerical algorithms to simulate such systems. Computational mechanics is of high value for the purposes of performance evaluation, sensitivity studies, control system design and model based monitoring. Modeling and simulation of electrohydraulic systems is also considered one of the research directions of this cluster. The research topics in this cluster include:

  • Vibration Control
  • Multi body Dynamics
  • Plane and Spatial Mechanisms, Synthesis and Analysis
  • Kineto-Elasto-Dynamics (KED)
  • Modeling and Simulation (& Multi-scale Simulation) of Mechanical Systems
  • Multi-scale materials modeling in polycrystalline materials
  • Modeling and simulation of metal forming processes
  • Modeling of mechanical /mechatronics systems 
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Fluid Structure Interaction
  • Fluid Power and Fluid Machinery
