Dr Georgiadis leads seminar at SANU Institute, Serbia

Dr Fotios Georgiadis, Senior Lecturer at the School of Engineering, University of Lincoln, was invited to conduct a seminar based around his work at SANU Institute, Serbia.

Dr Georgiadis received the invite following an earlier presentation on his work in Non-Linear Dynamics in Kharkov, Ukraine and delivered a talk on “Linear and Nonlinear Modelling / Dynamics of L-Shaped Beams – A Simple ‘Composite’ Elastic Structure”.

The research undertaken was about L-Shaped beams; a simple example of a complicated structure, and the development of full analytic models is essential in examining nonlinear dynamics which occurs under large deformations of the beams. This work will pave the way for analysing even more complicated structures such as aeroplanes and wind turbines.
