Projects per year
Mr Stephen Connolly is a 2nd year PhD student in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, supervised by Professor Donald Mackenzie and Dr Yevgen Gorash. His thesis, titled: Isothermal material models for rubber-like materials, focuses on developing experimental and numerical methods for the simulation of rubber and rubber-like materials. His current work primarily concerns the implementation of principal stretch based hyperelastic material models used in simulating quasi-static behaviour.
Teaching assistant for 16429 - Computer Aided Engineering Design. A 4th year Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering class revolved around the finite element software ANSYS Workbench.
