Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Structural engineering
  • Electrical engineering
  • Mechanical engineering

His primary scientific interests are in Structural engineering, Modal, Bridge, Vibration and Structural health monitoring. His research in Structural engineering intersects with topics in Computer simulation and Identification, System identification. His study focuses on the intersection of Modal and fields such as Finite element method with connections in the field of Aerodynamics, Simulation and Interferometry.

The Bridge study combines topics in areas such as Control system and Dynamic testing. His study in the fields of Modal damping ratio under the domain of Vibration overlaps with other disciplines such as River level. His Structural health monitoring research also works with subjects such as

  • Operational Modal Analysis that connect with fields like Turbine,
  • Principal component analysis most often made with reference to Arch bridge.

His most cited work include:

  • Vibration based structural health monitoring of an arch bridge: From automated OMA to damage detection (255 citations)
  • Online automatic identification of the modal parameters of a long span arch bridge (211 citations)
  • Ambient vibration re-testing and operational modal analysis of the Humber Bridge (177 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Structural engineering, Modal, Vibration, Identification and Bridge. His work on Bridge, Modal analysis, Structural health monitoring and Finite element method is typically connected to Continuous dynamic as part of general Structural engineering study, connecting several disciplines of science. His Modal study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Operational Modal Analysis, Arch dam and System identification.

His Operational Modal Analysis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Marine engineering and Turbine. The concepts of his Vibration study are interwoven with issues in Control system and Pedestrian. His Bridge study frequently links to related topics such as Forensic engineering.

Álvaro Cunha spends much of his time researching Structural engineering, Modal, Vibration, Operational Modal Analysis and Arch dam. Álvaro Cunha has researched Structural engineering in several fields, including Vibration based and Excitation. His Modal research includes themes of Data mining, Identification and Control theory.

His Identification research incorporates themes from Dynamic testing and Focus. His work on Modal analysis as part of his general Vibration study is frequently connected to Maxima and minima, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His studies deal with areas such as Turbine, Cluster analysis, Wind power and Structural health monitoring as well as Operational Modal Analysis.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Automated modal identification and tracking: Application to an iron arch bridge (67 citations)
  • Vibration‐based damage detection in a wind turbine using 1 year of data (25 citations)
  • Continuous dynamic monitoring of an onshore wind turbine (25 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Structural engineering
  • Electrical engineering
  • Mechanical engineering

Álvaro Cunha mainly investigates Structural engineering, Modal, Context, Operational Modal Analysis and Vibration. His work deals with themes such as Train and Hydroelectricity, which intersect with Structural engineering. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sea breeze, Marine engineering and Identification in addition to Modal.

His Identification study incorporates themes from Control engineering, Suspension and Simulation. Álvaro Cunha works mostly in the field of Operational Modal Analysis, limiting it down to topics relating to Cluster analysis and, in certain cases, Parametric statistics and Automation, as a part of the same area of interest. His work on Added mass as part of general Vibration research is frequently linked to Harmonics, bridging the gap between disciplines.
