Non-uniqueness and non-smooth solutions in the mechanics of fibre-reinforced elastic materials-
In this talk we study the finite deformation plane strain problem of azimuthal shear of a circular cylindrical tube of incompressible transversely isotropic elastic material. The preferred direction associated with the transverse isotropy lies in the plane under consideration and is disposed so as to preserve the cylindrical symmetry....
The dynamic behaviour of a rotor passing through critical speed-
Dynamical systems problems in the modelling of highway traffic-
Most drivers will be familiar with stop-and-go waves in highway traffic: One is driving smoothly along the highway when for no apparent reason traffic snarls up for several minutes before flowing smoothly again.Despite a modelling history spanning over 50 years, the fundamental mechanisms which explain these and associated spatiotemporal patterns...
Using CFD to predict vortex induced vibration response of deep water marine riser pipes-
Applied dynamics of non-smooth systems-
Despite of a significant progress in deriving practical solutions for nonlinear problems with dry friction, fracture and fatigue, the fundamental understanding of their complex dynamics is far from the stage where we can harness their behaviour. This lecture will focus on modelling and experimental studies of three dynamical systems where...
Sandwich panels for water blast protection: Simulations-
Sandwich panels consisting of steel face-plates separated by a lightweight steel core of a regular cellular construction are proving to have advantages in resisting the effects of high impulse blasts in water.
Investigation of the impact of a seawall on the beach using ARGUS video images-
Early results from a research project funded by Wyre Borough Council. The aim is to assess the impact of a new seawall on the beach using ARGUS video images. Analysis so far shows that beach volume changes during the measurement period (end 2005 – end 2006) were small, and no...
