8th International Operational Modal Analysis Conference

Activity: Attending an eventParticipating in or organising a conference


Just like in the occasion of the first two editions of the International Operational Modal Analysis Conference (IOMAC), Copenhagen again hosted the 8th IOMAC. This year’s edition of the IOMAC was held in May, from Monday 13 to Wednesday 15, during the colourful Danish spring of 2019, and was organized by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the International Group of Operational Modal Analysis with the sponsorship from Brüel & Kjær, Gfai Tech, Siemens, Structural Vibration Solutions. The local organizing committee thanks all who, directly or indirectly, contributed to the organization of the 8th IOMAC. The local organizing committee is also proud to contribute to the consolidation of Operational Modal Analysis (OMA) as alternative to the traditional Experimental Modal Analysis (EMA) in experimental structural dynamics. Since the first edition of the IOMAC conference held in Copenhagen, in 2005, OMA has experienced an enormous progress in terms of development of new reliable techniques suitable for solving a broad range of engineering problems in the real world. This achievement can be quantified by the substantial number of papers published in journals and Conferences, as well as by the publication of new books related to OMA background theory and applications. Similarly to the previous IOMAC editions, the IOMAC’19 conference covers all major aspects related to OMA by focusing on the following topics: Applications in Civil Structures, Damage Detection under Changing Operational Conditions, FEM Updating Using Operating Responses, Identification Techniques& Related Topics, Measurement Techniques and Virtual Sensing, Rotatory Machinery & OMA, Special Applications, Structural Health Monitoring, and Test and Monitoring of Wind Turbines. Apart from the considerable number of interesting papers on these topics, presented by researchers, engineers andstudents, the conference hosts two Keynote Lectures given by Professor Ph.D. Camelo Gentile and M.Sc. Svend Gade who are prestigious members of the OMA community. As in the previous editions of the IOMAC held in Denmark (2005 and 2007), Ancona, Italy (2009), Istambul, Turkey (2011), Guimaraes, Portugal (2013), Gijón, Spain (2015) and in Ingolstadt, Germany (2017), scientists, applicants, vendors, engineers and students had the opportunity to share and improve their knowledge and skills in the field of OMA. The local organizing committee wishes that IOMAC’19 enabled fruitful scientific discussions and offered the participants the opportunity to have a pleasant time in Copenhagen.
