We are engineers at heart. A shared passion for structural engineering brought us together at Delft University of Technology. Over the years we have worked together in academic and industrial projects in the field of sound and vibration engineering, with a focus on Dynamic Substructuring and Transfer Path Analysis. Due to the sheer beauty of the methods and its potential for next generation product development, we are driven to make these methods available for every engineer in the most accessible manner.
VIBES.technology is a new company founded in the Netherlands in 2015 with a mission to enable Experimental Dynamic Substructuring and modern TPA techniques for the engineering community. Our vision is that every engineer should be able to do these complex analyses “first time right”. To make that possible, we develop intuitive and user-friendly applications that make the analysis accessible. Our toolbox for Matlab is a great example: even though it is aimed at engineers with Matlab experience, it significantly reduces the time and expertise required to make an excellent analysis of sound & vibration levels.
We also provide engineering services and training to get you up to speed or help you improve the implementation of these methods. Get in touch to know how we can help!
The financials are covered by Daniël, who worked as an M&A consultant at Ernst & Young before co-founding VIBES. Daniel holds a mechanical engineering MSc degree from the TU Delft.
Dennis has over 15 years of experience in the field of experimental modeling and acts as an advisor to the VIBES team. Dennis holds a PhD degree from the TU Delft where he did a lot of research on experimental modeling, transfer path analysis and other relevant topics.
Eric takes care of all commercial activities of VIBES. Prior to co-founding VIBES Eric worked as a control engineer at Ampelmann. Eric holds a mechanical engineering MSc degree from the TU Delft and co-authored several papers in the domain of experimental modeling.
Products & Strategy
Maarten is responsible for the (new) product development and the product roadmap. Prior to co-founding VIBES, Maarten worked as a strategy consultant at Bain & Company and founded an app development company. Maarten holds a mechanical engineering MSc degree from the TU Delft.
Maarten holds a PhD degree from the TU Delft on dynamic substructuring and as such is responsible for the technology within VIBES. Maarten co-founded VIBES when he came back to Delft from BMW in Munich, where he did his PhD research.
Project Engineer & Developer
Mathieu works both as a project engineer and as a software developer. Mathieu joined VIBES while graduating for his MSc thesis in the field of Dynamics and his work was awarded with the DeMichele Scholarship Award at the International Modal Analysis Conference 2017 in California.
