Personal profile

Research profile

Ines Lopez Arteaga is a Full Professor at the Dynamics and Control group of the Mechanical Engineering Department and Chair of Acoustic and Noise Control at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Ines’ research focuses on optimal vibro-acoustic design of complex systems. Excessive noise levels affect the economic and technological development of Western countries in many ways. In 2020, noise pollution will be the main environmental problem in the Netherlands, surpassing air pollution as the main cause of environment-related health problems. Overexposure to noise can lead to, for example, heart attacks, high blood pressure or poor learning performance.


Acoustic disturbances can cause failure of complex systems such as turbines and limit the performance of high-tech precision machinery. Optimal vibro-acoustic design of complex systems implies three main steps, which are covered in Ines’ research: characterization of vibro-acoustic sources, vibro-acoustic modeling and developing noise and vibration reduction measures.

Academic background

Ines Lopez Arteaga received her PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Navarra, San Sebastian, Spain. Until January 2001 she mainly worked on noise and vibration reduction in railway applications as a researcher at CEIT research institute, Spain. After this, she joined DAF Trucks in The Netherlands on noise analysis of cabin interiors using Statistical Energy Analysis, source localization using Near-field Acoustic Holography and later at INNAS BV (reduction of pressure pulsations from pumps). In 2002 she joined TU/e where she continued to work on Near-field Acoustic Holography and started the research on tyre/road noise at the group Dynamics and Control.

From 2011 to 2014 Ines was visiting professor on vibro-acoustics of land transportation systems at the Marcus Wallenberg Laboratory for Sound and Vibration Research (MWL), KTH Royal Institute of Technology, where she was appointed full-professor in 2014. Ines has published a large number of papers in refereed journals and refereed conference proceedings and is subject editor for the Journal of Sound and Vibration.
