Purpose

  • To provide the international focal point for structural dynamics testing best practice.
  • To embrace both large industry and SMEs with a culture of testing alongside analysis.
  • To seek actively to integrate testing and simulation for dynamicists.
  • To promote the Dynamics and Testing Working Group as the central body of knowledge for dynamic testing and analysis and simulation.
  • To seek to raise funding through research bodies, government and the European Union.
  • To produce working documents to add to the publication profile of NAFEMS.

One Year Objectives

  • To establish the DTA as the central body of knowledge for dynamic testing and analysis and simulation.
  • To form a meaningful partnership and organisation with a broader dynamics remit.
  • To establish a presence with the Research Councils and Government funding agencies that dynamics is at the core of structural design.
  • To establish links beyond dynamics.

Five Year Objectives

  • To provide the international focal point for UK and European dynamics testing best practice.
  • To embrace both large industry and SMEs with a culture of testing rather than analysis in isolation.
  • To establish dynamic testing as core discipline for engineering design (testing an intrinsic part of design).
  • To promote dynamic testing for post-production certification and trouble-shooting.
  • To facilitate the reliable and effective use of dynamic testing.
