Education and Research Service

Machine Dynamics



What it is

To study the dynamic response of mechanical systems for the development of new solutions for heavy-duty applications.


Services provided:



-       Ability to get dynamic responses of real mechanical systems, where there are often pronounced nonlinearities such as the clearance between parts.

-       Depending on the objectives, responses may represent trajectories, speeds, accelerations, forces, stresses or strains.

-       A careful analysis of the responses paves the way for further improvements in existent equipments or for the development of new devices.



-       Teaching courses at MSc and PhD level.

-       Promoting short courses for the industry.
