UoS DRG 2nd Research Workshop in Structural Dynamics

LVV Events

This event took place 3 weeks ago

In March 2017, the Dynamics Research Group (DRG) in the University of Sheffield hosted a two-day research meeting: a one-day celebration of our 25+ year relationship with Los Alamos National Laboratory in the US, and a day based around population-based Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) in support of K Worden’s EPSRC Fellowship. The meeting proved very successful, so we are happy to announce a second workshop to be held this year; a three-day workshop to be held between the 18th and 20th November 2019.

The new workshop will be themed around the EPSRC Fellowships of K Worden and EJ Cross, with one day associated with each project. A third day will focus on verification and validation/digital twin work, and will incorporate full-scale structural test demos at the newly–operational Laboratory for Verification and Validation (LVV). Each day will be comprised of keynote lectures by international authorities, detailed research presentations, and ample space for discussions. The days will be:

·      Day 1: Population-based SHM: Focussed on new methods in SHM based around state-of-the-art methods in machine learning, graphs and complex network theory.

·      Day 2: Grey-box modelling for structural dynamics: A day focussing on how to incorporate physics and data-based learning into models.

·      Day 3: Verification and Validation: V&V and Digital Twins. Large scale demos in the LVV.

Attendance is by invitation only.

Where can I find the workshop?

On Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th November the workshop will be held at the ‘Inox Dine’ facility. Situated in the heart of Sheffield, Inox Dine is only a 2 minute walk from the University of Sheffield tram stop and a 5 minute taxi ride from the railway station. Inox Dine is located within the University of Sheffield Students’ Union Building on Level 5. Enter through the West Entrance of the Students’ Union Building, see below for Google Map. Students’ Union Building, Durham Road, Sheffield, S10 2TG. On Wednesday 20th November the workshop will be held off campus at the Laboratory for Verification & Validation (www.lvv.ac.uk). A coach will be provided from the Student’s Union building leaving at 9am. The coach will return guests back to the Student’s Union building at around 4pm. Lunch and refreshments will be supplied to guests on all days.
