In the presentation, Prof Ouyang will introduce the basic concept of receptance and the idea of structural modifications to achieve passive vibration control. The goal is to assign frequencies, modes and nodes to real structures. Laboratory examples and real applications are used to demonstrate the use and the power of this method. All these real cases are work done by his Group of Dynamics and Control.

Biography of the Speaker:

Prof. Huajiang Ouyang received his PhD degree in Structural Engineering from Dalian University of Technology. He is now a tenured Chair Professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Liverpool, where he also heads the Group of Dynamics and Control. He is a fellow of the British Physical Society, a member of the Higher Education Academy, and also a Cheung Kong Scholar in China.
