Laboratory of Vibrodiagnostics and Nonlinear Dynamics

Department:   Department D 3 - Dynamics and Vibration
Head:   Ing. Luděk Pešek, CSc.

The Laboratory of Vibrodiagnostics and Nonlinear Dynamics is primarily engaged in the methods of monitoring vibrations and dynamic loading of machine elements during rotation, the vibrodiagnostics of rotating machines, the vibroacoustic properties of mechanical systems, and numerical simulations of the vibrations of nonlinear systems. Dynamic behaviour with thermo-mechanical coupling is modelled for damping elements made of thermoviscoelastic materials. The stability of motion, the regions of chaotic and irregular motions, and the nonlinear interaction of oscillating dynamical systems with a source of vibration energy and external electromechanical systems, are primarily under study in the numerical simulation of nonlinear mechanical systems.
