The overall theme of my research is concerned with understanding and predicting the vibration response of complex structures that may be nonlinear and uncertain. Specific research interests include:
- Vibration of complex structures with localised non-linearities
- Sensitivity and uncertainty in complex structures
- Friction-damped turbine blades
- Turbine blade rotor / stator interaction
- Dynamics and control of oilwell drills
- Dynamic friction measurement and modelling
- Friction-induced vibration
Complex, resilient and intelligent systems
Nonlinearities in structural vibration problems are often poorly characterised. My research investigates methods for handling this uncertainty, both numerically and experimentally.
