Finite element methods for modelling the deformation of polymers

The finite element method (FEM) is by now a well-established and widely accepted approach for modelling the deformation of linearly elastic materials.In this project we will explore which FEM approach and constitutive laws may be applicable for modelling polymers, which have more deformation behaviour than a simple elastic material. Our long-term goal is to be able to accurately model the deformation of polymer bioscaffolds fabricated with the novel melt-electrowriting (MEW) additive manufacturing process. …

Structural health monitoring using vibration characteristics and artificial neural networks

Structural health monitoring (SHM) has emerged as a viable technique for evaluating the performance of structures during their construction and service lives.This project will study the application of SHM during the construction of a building or a bridge.Staged construction and time varying loading and the changes in stiffness will be considered.The aim of the project will be to develop a model that can predict the distress in the structure during its construction and determine its location and severity.Vibration characteristics of …
