Professor Paul Weaver

Expertise

My expertise lies in design and analysis of lightweight structures, particularly those constructed from composite materials. I have designed lightweight carbon fibre bicycle frames and have design methods for buckling analysis used by NASA, Agusta-Westland Helicopters, Airbus UK and Vestas (wind turbines). Stability and stiffness critical structures are my forte.
