    The Competition

    Researchers are invited to submit a manuscript from their work on “Experimental Vibration and Acoustics” for the review process in JTAVA. The manuscript will be reviewed in a fast-track process for publication in a special section of the journal while the work participates in the competition for H. Ahmadian Prize in the following annual ISAV conference. The prize is given in honor of the late Hamid Ahmadian, Professor of Vibration Engineering at Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST), a founding member of the Iranian Society of Acoustics and Vibration (ISAV) and the founding editor-in-chief of TAVA who led the journal from its launch in 2014 until 2021. Three prizes of a total worth 400 M IRR will be given to three winners selected by the panel.


    Recipients of 2022 Prizes

    The official startup of the prize during its 1st-year run caused delays in our public announcements and procedures of receiving participants. Thereupon, the review process was not completed on any of the participant manuscripts before the deadlines considered for the prizes awarded in ISAV2022 Conf. Based on the prize regulations, the jury thus selected a pool of 22 experimental papers for the competition which were already published on TAVA within the last 3-year interval. Three prizes, including one at level II (worth 100M IRR) and two at level III (each worth 50M IRR), were awarded during a special ceremony in the closing session of ISAV2022 Conf. The recipients were:

    Level II winner

    M. Tamizifar, M. Mosayebi*, S. Ziaei-Rad, Test planning and operational modal analysis of a wind turbine tower; application to its dynamic behaviorJournal of Theoretical and Applied Vibration and Acoustics, Vol. 6, Iss. 1, 143-158 (2020).

    Level III winners

    M. Farrokhnia, F. A. Shirazi*, M. Mahnama, M. Mahjoob, Finite element model updating of a geared rotor system using particle swarm optimization for condition monitoringJournal of Theoretical and Applied Vibration and Acoustics, Vol. 5, Iss. 2, 95-114 (2019).

    A. Mokhtari, M. M. Jalili, A. Mazidi*, Experimental investigation of the gyroscopic and rotary inertia effects on the chatter boundary in a milling processJournal of Theoretical and Applied Vibration and Acoustics, Vol. 5, Iss. 2, 115-130 (2019).



    Interested researchers should submit their manuscript with the “H. Ahmadian Prize” article to enter the competition. The research work will be reviewed in a fast-track process while a panel of reviewers will also evaluate the work based on the following items:



    Theoretical development of dynamic models

    Theoretical Basis


    Analytical, semi-analytical and numerical solution methods


    Design, construction and start-up of test-rig for experimental studies

    Experimental Validations


    Tests and experimental analyses


    Results validation by laboratory experiments


    Demonstration of industrial significance for the results

    Field Tests


    Industrial implementation of principal findings


    You may submit any supplementary file supporting the start-up of a test rig, field tests, or other items which might help the evaluator panel review the work.

    To support young researchers, manuscripts whose corresponding author is within the first 20 years of their career, will receive a +10% points in evaluations. Supporting documents in this regard may be submitted as supplementary material through manuscript submission.



    Participating manuscripts should meet the following criterion:

    The authors’ list should include a minimum of one faculty member and student from Iranian universities.



    Three prizes worth 250 M, 100 M, and 50 M IRR will be given to selected winners. The results will be announced at the ISAV2023 conference.



    The manuscript must be submitted no later than 6 July 2023, about 4 months before the ISAV2023 conference. This deadline is extended to 22 August 2023.
