Bibliography

I am a Research Associate in School of Engineering since 2013. I did a BEng and MSc in Mechanical Engineering – the University of Baghdad – Iraq in 2003. Then I did a PhD in Ultrasonics in School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow in 2012. My PhD thesis was entitled “Design and analysis of ultrasonic horns operating in longitudinal and torsional vibration” http://theses.gla.ac.uk/3851/

Research interest

My research interests are focused on developing the design of mechanical products/structures using advanced finite element analysis approach. This includes quasi-static and dynamic nonlinear analyses under various loading conditions including impact loading and using various material behaviour models.

In addition, I am interested in vibration analysis where I did my PhD in power Ultrasonics to develop a novel design approach that effectively combines two modes of vibration, namely longitudinal (L) and torsional (T) modes, in ultrasonic transducers to produce a combined LT response that proven to enhance the performance of many ultrasonic applications such as ultrasonic drilling and ultrasonic welding.

Current research

Currently, I work as a research associate in Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) project to develop an effective and cost-efficient design of rockfall catch-fence systems in railways for QTS Group Ltd., a railway infrastructure services contractor. The project includes reviewing the current designs and develop a new model based on finite element analysis, investigating the possibility to enhance energy absorption capacity and dynamic response of the systems, and conducting of experimental impact tests to validate the developed model.
