DYNAMO’s mission is to meet the needs of industry with respect to innovation aimed at improving the quality of its products and the operation of its machines and processes by combining applied research and industrial development activities. It relies on the implementation of innovative practices providing commercial benefits from research and on the transfer of technology to industry, taking into account environmental, social and economic dimensions and is considered a Canadian leader in dynamics. DYNAMO’s applied research is centered on three fields of mechanics: machinery dynamics, structural dynamics and process dynamics. The team’s areas of expertise include process simulation; structural health detection; and vibration, noise and mechanical fatigue control.


General Objective

Meet the needs of industry to improve the operation of machinery and processes in regard to the dynamics of machinery, structural and process dynamics. The process simulation, the detection of structural health and wear, and reduced vibration, noise and mechanical fatigue are among the areas of expertise Dynamo.

Its specific objectives are:

  • To study the dynamics of machinery (hydraulic turbines, robotic, gears, bearings, etc.)

  • To study the manufacturing process dynamics (New process, welding residual stress, etc.)

  • To study the problems related to noise and vibration machinery, mechanisms and structures (structural health monitoring, maintenance, etc.)
