Structural Mechanics Section
The Structural Mechanics Section of KU Leuven performs research in structural dynamics and building accoustics with a wide range of applications including vibrations and noise in buildings due to traffic and construction activities, vibration-based structural health monitoring, airborne and structure-borne sound transmission, vehicle-bridge interaction and wind-structure interaction. Other research topics include structural optimization, finite element model updating and dynamic force identification.
|The Structural Mechanics Section performs research on vibrations in the built environment, system identification and model updating and building accoustics.|
|Several courses are taught by prof. Degrande, prof. Lombaert, prof. Reynders and prof. François.|
|The Structural Mechanics Section frequently applies its research expertise in projects involving challenging problems in structural mechanics and building accoustics.|
