Future Research

I welcome enquiries from potential PhD candidates from Home, EU and International countries who are interested in the following research areas:

  • Non-linear finite element computational mechanics modelling (creep, fatigue, damage, cyclic visco-plasticity, welding, contact and wear)
  • Material behaviour characterisation (elastic-plastic, creep, fatigue, damage, fracture) and microstructure characterization
  • Development of material behaviour models
  • High temperature performance assessment methods of materials and components
  • Room and high temperature material testing, including miniature specimen testing methods
