Over £4 million to engineer a new generation of nonlinear dynamic design tools

UoB Press release issued 12 September 2012 The performance of engineering structures is controlled by how well they behave in their working environment. In many cases, such as wind or wave power generation, medical robotics, aerospace and large civil structures, nonlinear dynamic effects have a big influence on the operational performance. However, understanding and exploiting nonlinear […]
