Abstract:
AVRG is a mechanical engineering research group at VUB. The central goal of AVRG is to conduct fundamental and applied research in the broad field of smart process monitoring, with a special emphasis on Experimental and Operational Modal Analysis, Frequency-Domain Identification of Multivariable Systems and Non-Destructive Damage Assessment.

The research efforts revolves around the following three research domains: Monitoring of Offshore Wind Energy Systems, Condition Monitoring of Rotating Machines and Metal Additive Manufacturing (also known as 3D printing). In the topic of monitoring offshore wind energy AVRG has a longstanding involvement in the Offshore Wind Infrastracture (OWI)-lab. The group has led several research projects, on all Belgian offshore wind farms, with the aim to reduce the cost of offshore wind energy. Both by developing tools for condition monitoring of the machinery and by trying to better understand the challenges of building wind turbines in the offshore environment. The group has developed a track-record in performing both long-term and instantaneous dynamic measurements on offshore wind turbines and vessels.
