Dynamics and Control research group

Test setup in ACT LaboratoryThe dynamics and control research activity at the University of Bristol is concerned with research problems relating to modelling, simulation and control of civil, mechanical and aerospace engineering systems. The research group ethos involves the development of advanced analytical techniques in combination with numerical simulations with a particular focus on experimental testing.

As part of the University research theme of Dynamics Engineering, the Bristol Laboratory for Advanced Dynamics Engineering (BLADE) facilities provide state-of-the-art research and there are strong links with industry including a University Technology Centre with AgustaWestland.
