Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Structural engineering
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Finite element method

Geert Degrande focuses on Vibration, Structural engineering, Track, Free field and Boundary element method. His Vibration study combines topics in areas such as Free surface, Finite element method, Dynamic load testing and Axle. In his research on the topic of Finite element method, Domain decomposition methods is strongly related with Discretization.

His Structural engineering research includes themes of Transfer function, Numerical analysis and Ground vibrations. His study in Track is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Subgrade, Simulation, Noise and Stiffening. He has researched Free field in several fields, including Beam and Mechanics.

His most cited work include:

  • An augmented Kalman filter for force identification in structural dynamics (190 citations)
  • The experimental validation of a numerical model for the prediction of railway induced vibrations (189 citations)
  • Ground-borne vibration due to static and dynamic axle loads of InterCity and high-speed trains (185 citations)

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

Geert Degrande mainly focuses on Vibration, Structural engineering, Finite element method, Geotechnical engineering and Free field. In his work, Line is strongly intertwined with Track, which is a subfield of Vibration. He regularly ties together related areas like Ground vibrations in his Structural engineering studies.
