Piet Meijers.The Faculty 3mE / Secti<strong>on</strong> <strong>Engineering</strong> <strong>Dynamics</strong> of TUD hosted the <str<strong>on</strong>g>Symposium</str<strong>on</strong>g>.The Delft symposium featured as speakers:• prof. Daniel Rixen, Faculty of Mechanical <strong>Engineering</strong>, TUDelft, <strong>on</strong> the subject"<strong>Engineering</strong> <strong>Dynamics</strong> in Delft: joggling with science, industry andadministrati<strong>on</strong>";• prof. André de Boer, Faculty of Mechanical <strong>Engineering</strong>, University of Twente, <strong>on</strong>the subject "Optimal dynamics", focusing <strong>on</strong> acousto-elastic coupling of structuresand the accompanying generati<strong>on</strong> of noise;• prof. Henk Nijmeijer, Faculty of Mechanical <strong>Engineering</strong>, TU Eindhoven, <strong>on</strong>"<strong>Dynamics</strong> and c<strong>on</strong>trol in Eindhoven", illustrated by a variety of examples inmodeling with numerical and experimental tools; and• ir. René Liebregts, DAF Trucks in Eindhoven. <strong>on</strong> "Truck <strong>Dynamics</strong>", focusing <strong>on</strong>durability, ride comfort, handling, noise and harshness in truck operati<strong>on</strong>s..The three-hour symposium has been well attended by staff and students from throughoutthe university, and by engineers and mathematicians from other universities and industry.Here are some pictures that will help us f<strong>on</strong>dly remember this event:First, three of the four speakers, and twoof the organizers.
