 Professeur David J EWINS

University of Bristol - Faculty of Engineering - Department of Aerospace Engineering

David J Ewins

« Future Directions in Experimental Structural Dynamics »






David Ewins studied Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College and then undertook PhD research at Cambridge University, sponsored by Rolls-Royce.  He was appointed Professor of Vibration Engineering at Imperial in 1983 and set up the Centre of Vibration Engineering in 1990 with support from Rolls-Royce and was the founding Director of the Vibration UTC in 1990.  He has held Visiting Professor appointments in France, Switzerland, USA and Singapore, where he was Temasek Professor from 1999 to 2002.  He served as Pro Rector (International Relations) at Imperial College from 2001 until 2005.  Professor Ewins was appointed as Director of the Bristol Laboratory for Advanced Dynamics Engineering (BLADE) at Bristol University in July 2007.

His research interests span a wide range of structural dynamics topics, and include efforts to bring about an integration of the experimental, mechanical and theoretical methods that represent the whole spectrum of essential technologies.

Currently, there is a focus on the appropriate representation of joints on interfaces in the dynamic analysis of real engineering structures and he is Chair of the new ASME Research Committee established to co-ordinate international efforts in this area. His industrial application areas are primarily aerospace and defence with longstanding collaboration with Rolls-Royce, AgustaWestland and the Ministry of Defence. He is Chairman of the EU CleanSky Scientific and Technological Advisory Board (STAB) and a member of Rolls-Royce MSAB and others.

He is a Fellow of the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Indian Academy of Engineers and the Society for Experimental Mechanics.


Professeur Jean-claude GOLINVAL

Université de Liège - Département d'aérospatiale et mécanique  /  LTAS - Vibrations et identification des structures, Belgique

Pr JC Golinval

« On the Use of Principal Component Analysis for Parameter Identification and Damage Detection in Structures »






Jean-Claude Golinval graduated in Mechanical Engineering in 1980 and received his Ph.D. in 1989 from the University of Liege (Belgium). He was appointed Professor of Vibration Engineering at the University of Liege in 1991 where he set up the laboratory of Vibrations and Identification of Structures (LTAS-VIS).

His field of expertise lies in the theoretical and experimental modal analysis of structures and rotating machines. His current research interests are structural vibrations, identification of linear and nonlinear structures, structural damage detection and model updating.

 From 1997 until 2001, he coordinated the European COST Action F3 in « Structural Dynamics » (European Co-operation in the Field of Scientific and Technical Research). The topics of this Action were model updating, structural health monitoring and damage detection, and identification of nonlinear mechanical systems. He also coordinated a one-week training course in 2009 at the University of Liege in the framework of the SICON Marie Curie Action on Vibration Testing, Identification of Linear and Nonlinear Systems.   He served as Head of the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Liege from 2006 until 2009.   Since 1991, he authored and co-authored more than two hundred scientific publications in international journals and conference proceedings.

He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the Society of Experimental Mechanics (SEM). From 2005 until 2011, he was Associate Editor of the “Journal of Vibration and Acoustics and the Design Engineering Division” of the ASME.


Professeur Nuno MAIA

Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal

Pr N Maia

« Sur l'identification de l'endommagement structurel à partir des essais vibratoires »




Nuno Manuel Mendes Maia obtained his bachelor's and master's degrees (1978 and 1985, respectively) in mechanical engineering from Instituto Superior Tecnico (IST), University of Lisbon. He received his PhD in mechanical vibrations (1989) from Imperial College, University of London, UK. He had his habilitation in mechanical engineering (2001) from Instituto Superior Tecnico, University of Lisbon. Prof. Maia has authored and co-authored two textbooks and more than a hundred and fifty scientific publications in international journals and conference proceedings on the subject of modal analysis and structural dynamics.
He is an associate editor of the Shock and Vibration Journal, a member of the Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM), a member of the International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration (IIAV), and of the Portuguese Society of Acoustics (SPA), where he is responsible for the area of vibrations.
He has participated and coordinated various national and international research projects in the area of modal analysis and structural vibrations and has been responsible for the organization of the International Conference on Structural Engineering Dynamics (ICEDyn), since 2002.
His current research interests are modal analysis and modal testing, updating of finite element models, coupling and structural modification, damage detection in structures, modeling of damping, transmissibility in multiple degree-of-freedom systems, and force identification.
