University and MIRA Advanced Structural Dynamics Evaluation Centre launches

The University and MIRA have launched the £2.5million Advanced Structural Dynamics Evaluation Centre (ASDEC) on – the UK’s first commercial robotised 3D scanning laser vibration measurement and modal analysis centre.

Offering a full structural dynamics service covering vibration testing, modal analysis processing and CAE correlation, ASDEC is designed to support the advanced testing and analysis requirements of customers across all industries. 

The project has been led by Professor Sarah Hainsworth from the Department of Engineering and Anjuu Trevedi of the Enterprise and Business Development Office.  

Using industry leading technologies from companies such as Polytec and LMS, plus staff with more than 40 combined years of direct structural dynamics testing and development experience, and all backed up by the academic experts at the University, ASDEC has the capability to deliver the next level of structural dynamics expertise to its customers. 

The Centre has been developed by the University and funded by grants from the Government’s Regional Growth Fund and the European Regional Development Fund.
