Recent Advances in Structural Analysis and Optimization for Acoustics and Vibrations
organised by Prof. M. Matos Neves
IDMEC-IST, Portugal
Session Aims and Scope
The prediction of vibration levels (or/and sound radiation) from a structure or machine as well as the transmissibility of these is an essential key to introduce features which purpose is to minimize these vibration (or/and sound) levels. Although there are many methods in the literature to predict these responses as well as to optimize them, the current research in these fields continue to contribute with improvements and new ideas to new analytical, numerical and experimental techniques. The aim of this session is to bring to presentation some of these current works in order to promote its divulgation, discussion of the proposed methods and its application.

This session focuses on recent scientific developments within vibration, acoustic, as well as in the vibroacoustic fields.

Some particular topics and applications of this organized session include, but are not limited to:

  • structural vibration
  • vibroacoustics
  • vibration response of periodic structures
  • phononics
  • rotordynamics
  • hybrid numerical/experimental testing
  • force identification
  • estimation of mechanical material properties
  • damping
  • finite element analysis
  • statistical energy analysis
  • boundary element analysis
  • wavelet analysis
  • vibration control
  • structural radiation
  • sound transmission through structures
  • fluid-structure interaction
  • applications of optimization
