Multidisciplinary Engineered Dynamic Systems

The Multidisciplinary Engineered Dynamic Systems research group focuses on collaborative research at the interface of engineering disciplines including dynamics, vibration, acoustics, signal processing, molecular biology, and controls. These disciplines are becoming increasingly important due to advances in nanotechnology, higher machinery speeds, demanding operational loads, compact and lightweight designs, and new engineered materials.

Experimental work that employs high-speed processors, signal processing and embedded control processor, smart sensors, and actuators is evolving rapidly. When faced with complaints about noise or unpleasant vibration, many global manufacturers turn to the Multidisciplinary Engineered Dynamic Systems research group to investigate and improve their systems' behavior.

Researchers employ experimental and simulation-based methods to turn a grating whine into a gentle hum that exists below the realm of human perception. With modern lab facilities that include anechoic and reverberation chambers, researchers are well equipped to undertake studies of components and systems in full-scale operation.
