The principle aim of the symposium is to highlight and integrate
the various techniques employed in dealing with complex dynamic
problems encountered in various industries. This will lead to the
formation of an international forum for leading researchers in all
aspects of multi-body dynamics to gather and exchange their
valuable experiences.

The symposium is co-sponsored by The Institute of Measurement
and Control, The Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institute
of Electrical Engineers as well as Mechanical Dynamics
International. The Organising and the International Advisory
Committees are drawn from various cross-sections of leading academic
researchers and industrial practionnaires. High quality research and
development work will be discussed and disseminated to all interested
parties through refereed contributions that will be published in the
form of proceedings by the Mechanical Engineering Publications
(The Institution of Mechanical Engineers).

The scope of the symposium is suitably wide to encompass a
range of applications of multi-body dynamics,condition monitoring,
modelling and simulation techniques. It will cover applications
in automotive,aerospace, machine tool, turbo-machinery and
other machinery industries. It would broadly include the following:

Vehicle Dynamics:
Ride and Handling analysis (rail and road vehicles): suspension and
steering systems,braking performance,tyre/road interactions and NVH
analysis. Body design including: structural dynamics and

Power Train Dynamics:
power train design, monitoring and analysis including: concept engines,
engines and sub-systems, NVH and vibration isolation, engine tribology,
transmission design, NVH and tribological issues, CVT systems, driveline
components: Cardan joints, splines, torque tubes, differential.

Aerospace Dynamics:
Aircraft/aerospace systems including elasto-aerodynamics of wings, solar
panels, stabilising booms. Mechanism design for ailerons, flaps, spoilers,
rudders, elevators, landing gears. Aero-engines: vibration monitoring and
analysis of rotors, bearings, blades. Micro-gravity effects in spacecrafts,
Gyrodynamics. Tribological issues in bearings and transmissions.

Rotor Dynamics:
Vibrations of shaft and bearing systems, long rotors, machine tool spindles,
turbo-machinery and blading systems, rotors with mounted members,
out-of-balance vibrations. Contact dynamics problems in lubricated and dry
contacts, variable compliance, vibrations in bearings, rotor/stator rubbing

Tool/work interactions; chatter and stick-slip problems, cutting dynamics.
Real time condition monitoring, spectral and cepstral analyses.

Numerical Methods:
Lagrangian dynamics, Eulerian dynamics, Brownian dynamics,
Modal analysis, FRF analysis, finite difference, finite element and
boundary integral element methods,variable step-size “stiff”
integration algorithms, sparse matrix technology, state-space
analysis, linear quadratic Gaussian compensation.
