The Dynamics Laboratory, affiliated to the Consortium for Sound and Vibration Research, is dedicated to the R&D of both fundamental and applied research in the field of structural dynamics, non-destructive evaluation and structural health monitoring. The lab is enjoying burgeoning growth since its establishment, consistently outputting high-quality publications in top-tier SCI journals and securing research grants from various sources. The lab is well-equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, enabling innovative research and development of cutting-edge technologies, represented by VXI- and PXI-based high-performance signal generation and acquisition platforms, ultrasonic scanning systems, dynamic analysis systems, laser Doppler vibrometer, etc. More recently, a compact online structural health monitoring system, in conjunction with use of an innovative sensor network technique, has been developed in the lab. Comprehensively integrating signal generation modulus, signal acquisition modulus, central controlling and past-processing modulus, the system is able to deliver quantitative evaluation of structural integrity and health status in a real-time manner, offering a practical solution to the safety and integrity management of real-world structures.
