Personal profile

Personal Statement

Yevgen Gorash is Research Fellow in the Weir Advanced Research Centre (WARC) - research group which works on a range of collaborative projects with Weir Group, a leading manufacturer of equipment for mining, oil and gas and power industries.

His area of expertise and responsibly includes FE-analysis of structural integrity using advanced approaches within non-linear Mechanics of Materials. Objects of analysis and design optimisation are usually products produced by various divisions and companies of the Weir Group located all over the world.

Managerial responsibilities within WARC and department include implementation of research and knowledge exchange projects, coordination with industrial partners, support of early career researchers and supervision of PhD students.

Expertise & Capabilities

  • CAD (SolidWorks, PTC Creo) and CAE (ANSYS, ABAQUS, SolidWorks Simulation/Motion/Flow, PTC Creo Simulate)
  • Nonlinear material models (Plasticity and Viscoplasticity, Creep, Fatigue, Hyperelasticity, Unified material models)
  • Finite Element Analysis; Continuum Damage Mechanics; Creep or/and Fatigue residual life assessment; Limit / shakedown and ratchetting analyses

Teaching Interests

Teaching assistance with labs on class 16429 – Computer-Aided Engineering Design (CAED) for 4th year students of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering.

Research Interests

Current research interests comprise study and modelling of non-linear material behaviour: Plasticity and Viscoplasticity, Creep, Fatigue, Hyperelasticity, Unified material models. These non-linear material effects are applied to the residual life assessments of engineering structures subject to severe loading conditions using FEA and concepts of Continuum Damage Mechanics.
