Hydrodynamic Performance of Billfish Skin Surface Roughness: Towards Drag-Reducing Engineering Surfaces

Biological surfaces often exhibit roughness features across a wide range of scales, serving a multitude of functions from protective armour through to controlling heat and mass transfer rates at the surface of the organism. Read more

Mechanics of soft solids and structures under large deformation

Background. Solid materials that can undergo large deformations are ubiquitous in nature and are widely used to manufacture engineering components, devices and structures. Read more

Non-contact transient optical coherence elastography for non-invasive quantitation of mechanical properties of skin

There are many skin disorders where changes in skin quality can produce much morbidity. This includes the diseases of skin sclerosis (thickening/scarring/inelasticity) such as Systemic Sclerosis (SSc), and the diseases of skin thinning (eg keloid scar formation where there is hypertrophy with reduced strength).

Frequency analysis and design of nonlinear systems: theories, methods and their applications

This project is concerned with the development of the theories and methods for the frequency analysis and design of nonlinear systems and the application of these theories and methods in an wide range of science and engineering areas. Read more

Optimal Design of Nacre-like materials

Natural living materials, such as nacre or seashells, are biological and hierarchical composite materials, They are made of very strong and stiff nano-sized single crystal mineral plates embedded in a very soft and ductile protein matrix material. They have excellent mechanical properties in strength, stiffness and fracture toughness. .
