Personal profile

Research Interests

Declan Nolan is a lecturer in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, with research interests in next generation engineering design and simulation tools, structural analysis and impact modelling. He received his PhD in 2013, with thesis titled “Defining Simulation Intent”. This novel approach to simulation aims to capture modelling and idealisation decisions, which can then be redeployed or tweaked to reduce manual pre-processing efforts. Prior to his current role, he spent time in industry with Michelin, Williams F1 and B/E Aerospace, gaining valuable experience within each organisation which continues to motivate his research. Having taken up his current position in 2017, his more recent research projects have centred around Finite Element modelling technologies, Novel Aircraft Structural analysis and Bio-inspired design.
