Research summary

Prof. Lowenberg is a member of the Dept. of Aerospace Engineering and Head of the Dynamics and Control Research Group. His principal research interest is nonlinear flight dynamics in general, including related wind tunnel experimentation, and in the use of bifurcation analysis to study nonlinear systems in particular. This work was instrumental in initiating bifurcation-based flight dynamics studies in the UK, following a number of research contracts with the then Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA). These led DERA to invest in both in-house bifurcation analysis capability and other external contracts aimed at refining the techniques and software for flight ...
