Tackling falls and fracture in Parkinson’s

Half of all women, and 20% of men, aged over 50 years will sustain a fracture in their remaining lifetime. However, people with Parkinson’s disease (PwP) are particularly predisposed towards excess fall and fracture risk and subsequent hospital admission. Read more

Effect of obesity on bone strength and implication on the risk of hip fracture

There is a clear and unmet need to address the diagnosis of hip fracture risk associated with osteoporosis. Whereas low weight is a well-documented risk factor for future bone fractures, a high body weight seems to protect against hip fracture. Read more

Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics based Mechanical Design Optimisation

The aim of this PhD project is to experimentally and numerically investigate the fatigue and fracture behaviour of heavy industrial equipment working in challenging environments. Read more

Fracture assessment of large-scale structural components through the selection of matching small-scale laboratory specimens

You will join the internationally recognised researchers in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. This fracture mechanics-oriented research project will be focused on the crack-tip constraint effect. Read more

Computational modelling of cement-implant and cement-bone fracture in Unicondylar Knee Replacements (UKR)

Loosening is one of the major causes of implant failures, resulting in a lower success rate of joint replacement surgery. However, research conducted on the fracture of the polymer bone cement which holds the implant in place has not been extensive. Read more

PhD in Computational Fracture Mechanics: Methods, Programming and Simulation

The aim of this PhD programme is to develop efficient numerical strategies for the prediction and assessment of fracture. Our group has got success in the development of new numerical strategies, e.g. Read more

Simulating Composite Fracture by the Extended Finite Element Method

In this project, three-dimensional analyses of fracture in composite laminates will be conducted. The aim is to investigate if the XFEM is capable to reproduce fracture in composites with a sufficient degree of accurateness in terms of energy release rates and stress intensity factors. Read more

Fracture of Automotive Advanced High Strength Steels

Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) are increasingly used throughout the chassis of modern cars since they provide a high strength-to-weight ratio and improved crashworthiness due to greater energy absorption capabilities. Read more

Computational Mechanics of Fracture on Advanced Composite Aerospace Structures

Over the last decade there has been a significant increase in the use of composite laminates in the aerospace industry in a drive to reduce weight and as a result to reduce emissions. Read more

Instrumenting Surgical Tools for Intraoperative Assessment of Bone Mechanical Properties

Commercial partner: . Stryker. , Cork, Ireland. Bones are complex organs and their ability to withstand mechanical forces depends on a complex interplay of structural, architectural, and material properties. Read more
