Dr Damian Quinn graduated from Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) in 2005 with an RaeS accredited Master’s degree (First Class Honours) in Aeronautical Engineering. This was followed in 2010 by the completion of a PhD entitled “Panel Skin Sub-stiffening Concepts for Improved Structural Performance” from the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (QUB). Prior to joining the staff of QUB as a lecturer in Aircraft Structures in 2012, he undertook two industrially based Post-Doctoral research positions focusing on the analysis and design of aircraft structural components with Bombardier Aerospace and Constellium CRV (previously ALCAN CRV).
Dr Damian Quinn’s research interests include the structural analysis and design of thin-walled structures, with a strong focus on aerospace applications. His research targets both metallic applications (analysis and optimised design considering advanced alloys, novel geometric design and new manufacturing methods) and composite applications (impact modelling, structural analysis and integrated design for manufacture).
He has a keen interest in pursuing experimentally based research including material characterisation, structural detail testing and higher TRL sub-component testing. His numerical research interests are centered on the finite element modeling of thin-walled structural components across multiple scales, including the sizing of large scale aerospace components. A major element of his numerical research is FEM modelling automation and the interfacing of various design and analysis tools across multiple software platforms.
Dr Damian Quinn’s teaching activities within the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering include;
AER3004 Aircraft Structures 3
This module exposes students to advanced structural analysis methods using energy methods to determine structural deflections in frameworks and beams, and methods to determine forces in redundant structures. It also introduces students to aeroelasticity, including the various aeroelastic effects and aircraft is susceptible to and how they are accounted for in the aircraft structural design.
MEE1035 Introduction to Aerospace Engineering 1
Through a series of group based design and test exercises this module provides students with a practical hands-on experience of the activities and responsibilities of a professional engineer. They are tasked with applying their developing technical knowledge and skills to practical problems covering a range of aerospace disciplines such as aerodynamics, structural design and flight mechanics.
