My main research interests are in modelling dynamic systems, in non-linear dynamics and vibration and in the application of these areas along with design to solve industrial problems. These have been applied to a wide variety of systems, including non-linear rotor systems, impacting systems, geotechnical systems and aspects of a non-linear rotordynamics/wear problem. I also have an interest in applying dynamics and design to biomedical problems.
My main research is currently focussed on the next stage of the underwater cutting project.
Novel Underwater Cutting System (Phase 2). ITF project, bid submitted to BP, Shell and Conoco Philips, £477,693 (Principal investigator).
In Europe, the majority of oil and gas production (OGP) comes from mature offshore facilities that are approaching the end of their lifespan. The current low oil price is prompting decisions about the decommissioning of...
More than 40 years since oil first flowed from the Forties oil field, many North Sea fields are coming to the end of their productive lives. This means that platforms must be decommissioned and dismantled, the wells...
