The research field of Structural Dynamics combines numerical simulations, laboratory experiments and site measurements on existing structures. This also include development, and application, of new methods and techniques for numerical simulation of dynamic response. 

Safety and reliability are important factors for all application areas, and one main goal of the research is to generate data that may be used to improve the design of bridges and railways and help extend the technology to solve the challenging problems of the future.
