Structural Dynamics Laboratory for Verification and Validation

The Structural Dynamics Laboratory for Verification and Validation (LVV) is a major new acoustics and vibration testing facility funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the University of Sheffield. It is a world-leading research facility for the testing of large engineering structures under realistic environmental and dynamic conditions, helping to validate the computer simulation models used in the engineering design process. The facility provides a unique research offering to both academia and industry. Capitalising upon the University's globally recognised expertise in this field, the LVV facilitates the development of V&V technology for models of components and full structures under representative operating conditions.
