Personal profile

Personal Statement

Mr Stephen Connolly is a 3rd year PhD student in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, supervised by Professor Donald Mackenzie and Dr Yevgen Gorash. His thesis, 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 constitutitve models used in simulating isothermal, path-independent, and quasi-static behaviour. This is a tie-in to another ongoing study into the implications of constitutive model selection in experimental parameter identification methods.
