XIX International Symposium on Dynamic Problems of Mechanics

Panel – Dynamics: past, present and Future

DINAME 2023 will be the first edition of this symposium to feature a Panel Session. In this high-profile session, a panel of four specialists and prestigious researchers will get together to discuss the topic “Dynamics: past, present and future”. Prof. Domingos Rade (ITA) will mediate the session. The audience will be welcome to contribute with their questions and points of view.

Professor Marian Wiercigroch FRSE

Professor Marian Wiercigroch educated in Poland, US and UK holds a prestigious Sixth Century Chair in Applied Dynamics and he is a founding director of the Centre for Applied Dynamics Research at the University of Aberdeen.

His area of research is theoretical and experimental nonlinear dynamics, which he applies to various engineering problems. Wiercigroch has published extensively (over 400 journal and conference papers) and sits on a dozen editorial boards of peer review journals. He is the Editor-In-Chief of International Journal of Mechanical Sciences and a frequent keynote and plenary speaker at major international conferences.

He is the inventor of new patented drilling technology called Resonance Enhanced Drilling and the Founder and Chief Technology Officer of a spinoff company iVDynamics Ltd.  He has established in Aberdeen unique experimental laboratories allowing to investigate complex nonlinear dynamic interactions in mechanical systems with the focus on energy generation.

He has received many awards and distinctions including a Senior Fulbright Scholarship (1994), Fellowship of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (2009), DSc honoris causa by the Lodz University of Technology (2013), Distinguished Professorships at the Perm National Research Polytechnic University (2017), Balseiro Institute (2018) and Yanshan University (2021), a Scottish Champion of Knowledge Exchange (2020) and has been a panelist of the Research Excellence Framework (2014, 2021) assessing quality of research in the UK.

Marcelo A. Savi

Marcelo A. Savi is Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and Professor at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (COPPE – Department of Mechanical Engineering) being the Head of the Center for Nonlinear Mechanics. He has published over 500 journal and conference papers, 5 books and about 15 book chapters. Awards and distinctions were received including: UFRJ solemn tribute to the most influential researchers in the world (Top 2%) based on PLOS Biology publication; COPPE Award Giulio Massarani of the Academic Merit; CNPq Researcher level 1A; Scientist of Rio de Janeiro. He is actively involved as advisor of graduate and undergraduate students, summing more than 150 works. He has administrative experience as head of department, graduate coordinator, and university committees. He serves as Associate Editor of some journals, where it is important to highlight: International Journal of Mechanical Sciences (2018-present); ASME – Journal of Computational and Nonlinear Dynamics (2019-present); Journal of Vibration and Control (2017-present); Metals (2021-present); Mathematical Problems in Engineering (2018-present); Journal of the Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering (2006-2016); Journal of Applied Mathematics (2012-2014); and Open Journal of Acoustics (2007-2013). He is member of academic societies including ASME, ABCM and SBF. Research interests are related to nonlinear mechanics where it should be highlighted smart material and structures; nonlinear dynamics, chaos and control; biomechanics and ecology.

J. Roberto F. Arruda

Roberto F. Arruda holds a Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Campinas and a Doctor degree from the University of Paris VI (1979). He is currently Full Professor with the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Campinas. He was a Visiting Scholar with INSA Lyon in 1986, with Virginia Tech in 1991, with KU Leuven in 1996, with the Acoustics Laboratory of Le Mans in 2004, and with other French institutions since then (ECL, ENSIM, UPMC, ECM/LMA).  He has been the Scientific Director of the Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering (2009-2013). He is currently a senior advisor to the Scientific Director of the São Paulo State research funding agency (FAPESP), Associate Editor of Acta Acustica, and member of scientific boards of conferences (ISMA, NOVEM, ICEDyn). He has given Keynote lectures in national and international conferences (ICSV, ISMA, ICEDyn). He is a member of the Brazilian National Academy of Engineering (ANE). His research involves structural dynamics, identification and active control, and, more recently, engineered periodic structures (elastic metamaterials).
