Vibration Dynamics and Control of Vehicle and Rotor Systems

This issue is now closed for submissions.


Vibration dynamics of mechanical systems facilitate the fundamental understanding of oscillation phenomena. It provides adequate dynamic design theories and powerful analytical and computational methods for the development of vehicles, rotors, ships, aircrafts, and satellites, as well as many other mechanical systems. Various vibration control strategies have been proposed and developed by different scientific communities to reduce the negative effects of mechanical vibrations or noise for specific scenarios, improving quality as well as dynamic performance. Vibration dynamics and control promote a deep insight into underlying behaviour and enable problem solutions and proper system design, thus playing an important role in the development of modern and innovative mechanical systems.

Numerical simulations of vibration dynamics and control of vehicle and rotor systems may provide rough evaluations of their performance before they are actually processed in factories, thus helping to improve their design at a low cost. Refined dynamic models of vehicle and rotor systems lead to much more precise computational results, but at the expense of a much longer computational time. This lowers computational efficiency for design optimisation. Meanwhile, sensors and actuators in the area of dynamics control of vehicle and rotor systems still cannot meet engineering requirements because of inability, low reliability, or lack of practical control strategies.

The Special Issue aims to systematically reveal the state of the art of vibration dynamics and control of vehicle and rotor systems and their impact on the development of modern science and technology. Original research and review articles related to new advances and current state of vibration dynamics and control with respect to theoretical, computational, and design techniques are welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Advanced modelling theories for vibration dynamics analysis
  • Innovative efficient numerical algorithms for vibration dynamics analysis
  • Novel sensitivity analysis and design optimisation methods
  • New highly reliable sensors and actuators
  • Robust active, semi-active, and passive vibration control strategies
  • Practical applications of vibration dynamics and control to vehicle and rotor systems
