Research Group

Main organisation:DECISION & CONTROL
Lifecycle:9 May 2014  →  Today
Organisation profile:

The Flanders MakeDMMS core lab consistsof two research teams of the KU LeuvenDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, being the Noise and Vibration Research Group and the MECO research group. Together, thesegroups have a longstanding history and are internationally highly recognizedexperts in the fields of:

·        Numericalmodelling;

·        Engineeringdynamics;

·        Mechatronicanalysis and design;

·        Vibro-acousticanalysis and lightweight structure design and analysis;

·        Sensing,identification, control, optimization and monitoring of mechanical andmechatronic systems

withapplications in,amongst others, the automotive and machine buildingindustry. Expertise in these domains is valorised in various regional, national and internationalprojects and programmes.

DMMSis involved in Flanders Make in two core labs: DMMS-M and DMMS-D. With DMMS-M(M for mechatronic), we coverkey aspects for the competence cluster Decision & Control. Our researchinvolves:

·        Physicalmodel-based sensing and monitoring;

·        Systemidentification and parameter and state estimation;

·        Advanced(motion) control and motion optimization;

Signalprocessing in service to condition and health monitoring.
