Most structures in an operating environment will be subject to dynamic loads. Often this leads to unwanted vibration. Of course, in a perfect world engineers would have anticipated such issues and designed the product accordingly. In the real world, we often have to resolve vibration issues retrospectively. Thus, the purpose of this workshop was to show a range of analysis and testing techniques which can achieve in-situ vibration reduction.
The workshop was illustrated with examples from the Aerospace, Civil, Process and Automotive industries and was of interest to all engineers who encounter vibration response in pre-production design, validation of test models or even operational troubleshooting.
