3-6 September 2013
Modelling and Simulations of Vibrations Generated by Moving Loads
organised by Prof. P. Koziol
Koszalin University of Technology, Poland
Session Aims and Scope
Recent development of modern transportation systems leads to new problems that need to be studied for better construction of safe transport. The detailed analysis of structures dynamic behaviour should allow the development of effective methods for prevention of surroundings against noise and vibrations generated by vehicles. The science did not answer satisfactorily for many questions regarding dynamic response of train and road systems, especially in the subject of vibration mitigation. Therefore appropriate modelling approaches, along with numerical simulations and measurements, are needed for representation of real constructions dynamic phenomena and better prediction of structures behaviour.

The session is addressed to academic scientists and industry researchers to bring together interdisciplinary ideas related to physical problems appearing in systems subjected to moving loads.

The session will cover the following topics:

  • Vibrations and noise generated by rail and road transportation
  • Ground-born vibrations
  • Environmental vibrations
  • Vibration attenuation
  • Wave propagation in dynamic systems
  • Vehicle-foundation dynamic interactions
  • Multilayered media analysis
  • Multi-body dynamics
  • Sound barriers
  • Analytical and numerical modelling of vibrations induced by moving loads
  • Stochastic and nonlinear systems
  • Approximation and estimation techniques
  • Optimization methods for vibration analysis
  • Measurements and experimental validation
