POTENTIAL ACADEMIC STAFF (PAS) Grant (1st April 2013 – 31st March 2014)
(Advanced Modelling of Steel Beams with Web Openings – ext. from my PhD’s research study)

Focus : ► Meshfree methods and Rotational Spring Analogy for material and geometric stiffness. ► Local and global buckling analysis via uncoupled planar/out-of-plane response. ► Further issues on vibration of steel beams with web openings. ► Comparison against nonlinear FEA for several typical examples of perforated beams.
