Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am Dr Stephen Connolly and I am a Teaching Associate within the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

During my PhD, I studied the numerical prediction of the hyperelastic behaviour of rubber-like materials. This focused on parameter identification of hyperelastic constitutive models and the implementation of these constitutive models within the Finite Element Method. This work led to two journal publications as well as the opportunity to present at several international conferences. Though the work I enjoyed the most throughout my PhD was as a part-time Teaching Associate for several undergraduate classes.

My current teaching is mainly in the area of mechanics of materials and engineering analysis. This year I am involved in 16363, 16429, and ME315.

My other responsibilities include supervising individual projects for Graduate Apprenticeship (GA), 4th year, and MSc, and the 5th year MEng group projects.
