Current research at Bristol has developed the use of state of the art Acoustic Emission monitoring to identify individual damage events and to detect damage thresholds.
Results support the hypotheses of load cycle mix interaction and transient wear-in of damage states and provide a wealth of information to understand the fatigue damage accumulation process.
Dr Farrow has a BSc in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Southampton University and a PhD in Aircraft Design from the College of Aeronautics, Cranfield Institute of Technology. His industrial experience includes work in the Structures & Technology group at British Aerospace Filton on fatigue analysis of Airbus Aircraft and vibration analysis of ESA satellite structures.
Later, at the College of Aeronautics, Dr Farrow investigated the fatigue of carbon fibre composite materials of Harrier aircraft for RAE Farnborough. Currently, as lecturer in Aircraft Structural Design and Director of Structures & Materials teaching his responsibilities include courses in aircraft structures, materials, design and manufacture ...
