The Engineering Nonlinearity team are managing the legacy and impact of the new nonlinear dynamic design tools developed, including:

Engineering Nonlinearity was a £4.2M EPSRC-sponsored programme grant, running from September 2012 – September 2017, involving the Universities of Sheffield, Bristol, Cambridge, Southampton and Swansea, and led by the University of Sheffield. This collaborative research team created new nonlinear dynamic design tools for engineering structures.
