Centre for Applied Dynamic Research (CADR)

Research Facilities: Centre

    Description

    Centre for Applied Dynamic Research (CADR) is a multi-disciplinary research group founded in 2003 with a strong focus on application theory of dynamical systems to science and engineering. The aim of the Centre is to facilitate and enhance interactions within the University and to increase interactions between the University and other academic institutions, industry, and national laboratories, through international partnerships, collaborations and alliances increase the visibility of the University as a focal point for academic excellence.

    The main strength of Centre is a harmonious blend of theoretical and the experimentally rich research in a broad spectrum of dynamics including smooth and non-smooth dynamical systems, elastic stability, parametric and nonlinear oscillations, chaos control, classical and quantum relativity, bifurcations, transients and crisis, vibro-impact dynamics, vibration control, nonlinear time series analysis, synchronization, mechanics of supercoiling of DNA, neural networks and neural dynamics, molecular dynamic simulation, percussion drilling, drill-string dynamics, underwater acoustics, spacio-temporal systems, condition monitoring and renewable energy.

    CADR with its average membership of 25 researchers over the years has won research funding over £10M, developed a suite of experimental facilities, published extensively in the area of applied dynamics, has organised many international conferences and hosted over 150 long and short term academic visitors
