David Ewins

Professor David Ewins FREng FRS


Elected: 2006


David Ewins has made distinguished contributions to the general field of vibration engineering and, in particular, in modal analysis and in the dynamics of rotational machinery. He has been particularly successful in analysing vibrations in gas turbine blades and has made major contributions to their design, referring to the application of these subjects in practice as the ‘art’ of modal analysis. He has been Director of the Rolls-Royce centre at Imperial College since its conception, which has been a springboard for applying these activities on a large scale.
