Research

by Zopeown last modified 2015-06-28 18:51

Dr. Kim's research areas are in acoustics and vibrations.  Recent research focuses include research on the human exposure to impulsive noise, human exposure to vibratory motions and advanced signal processing. Past research examples include vibration of shells and plates, buckling and post buckling of plates, structure-noise interaction problems, machine design and analysis, and modeling and identification of damping in dynamic systems.  He is a member of UC-SDRL, which is a world-renowned vibration and modal analysis laboratory under the Mechanical Engineering Program at UC and UC-CAE Lab, a newly formed research center for computer aided numerical design engineering.
