Dynamics and Control

The Group integrates the interests of researchers across several engineering disciplines in the quest to extend capability in analysis and synthesis of system dynamics. It addresses challenges arising from nonlinearity, uncertainty and multi-disciplinarity in areas such as structural vibrations and performance, aeroelasticity, energy harvesting, robust and autonomous control, response of civil engineering structures to external inputs, etc. It's members deploy both novel experimental approaches and theoretical/computational methods.

Professor Mark Lowenberg, Head of Group

The Dynamics and Control Group addresses research problems relating to modelling, simulation and control of civil, mechanical and aerospace engineering systems. The research group focuses on the development of advanced analytical techniques in combination with numerical simulations and a strong element of experimental testing.


The Group’s research activities span fundamental engineering science, where new insights are developed and experimentally tested, to applied research. These activities are split as follows:
