Program Summary

The Structural Dynamics and Acoustic Systems Laboratory (SDASL) focuses on research related to analytical and experimental problems in the areas of structural and acoustic systems. The main thrust of the SDASL is to develop, employ and improve techniques to solve these problems using analytical approaches that are verified through experimental techniques.

The SDASL is well equipped to conduct structural dynamic, acoustical, modal analysis, and control system experiments and modeling and is one of the strongest research laboratories working on acoustics and vibrations in the eastern part of the United States. This lab is directly under the supervision of the principal investigators Murat Inalpolat and Christopher Niezrecki.
