Vibration mitigation is a key issue in civil, mechanical and aerospace engineering. A significant research effort is now focusing on developing new principles, materials and devices to overcome current limitations. Scope of the Mini-Symposium is to gather contributions on innovative concepts as: 

  • Locally resonant acoustic metamaterials
  • New damping materials (carbon nanotube composites, shape memory alloys, metal particles, photorheological fluids)
  • Surface damping treatments for structural components
  • Tuned resonant masses, inerter-based absorbers, tuned liquid column dampers
  • Viscoelastic damping devices with fractional law 

Contributions may include (but are not restricted to) applications in the following fields: 

  • Vibration mitigation of structural, mechanical and aerospace components
  • Seismic isolation
  • Vibration/oscillation mitigation in offshore wind turbines
