Team Lead Aeroelastic System Identification
DLR - German Aerospace Centre
Dr. Yves Govers joined the German Aerospace Center in 2005. He is currently deputy head of the structural dynamics and system identification department at the institute of aeroelasticity in Göttingen. Throughout his career he led several test campaigns such as the helicopter shake test on Airbus H145 and the aircraft ground vibration test on Airbus A350-900, A320 Neo or the world record plane Solar Impulse. Govers and his team are currently working on real time system identification methods for flight testing to support flight flutter tests and for the development of demonstrators exploring flutter suppression techniques.
