Structural dynamics is an area with a wide range of applications spanning from aerospace, vehicle and machine to buildings. Within this area structures’ dynamic behavior is studied; this includes performance, comfort, life and vibrations.

The omnipresent strive of weigh reduction enhance the need for knowledge within structural dynamics to clear the designs regarding loads and dynamic behavior.

Within Structural Dynamics more often than not finite element models, setting out from knowledge within Solid Mechanics, are used. To validate that a model sufficiently represents a real structure, vibrational tests are used; for that theory from Signal Analysis.

Tuning of the model can be required due to discrepancies between test data and analytical data; this is an optimization problem. Structural Dynamics is an increasingly important area within product development.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
