The Group for Nonlinear Dynamics and Oscillations has a wide range of interest in the mechanical and mathematical modelling of dynamical and oscillatory systems. This also includes the use and development of quantitative and qualitative methods to study their behavior and associated phenomena. The focus is on nonlinear systems, where the nonlinearity can be material, or stem from physical configurations or excitations. The activities cover the whole spectrum, from fundamental theoretical and applied studies in structural engineering to the problems arising in living organisms, such as, for example, the dynamics of cell microtubules, DNA, neurons and vocal cords.
Besides theoretical investigation, another area of work includes environmental and workplace noise monitoring and control as well as vibrodiagnostics of machines and structures. Very successful cooperation with local industry has been developed in this respect.
