Developing mathematical theories of the physical world: Open Access research on fluid dynamics from Strathclyde

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by Strathclyde's Department of Mathematics & Statistics, where continuum mechanics and industrial mathematics is a specialism. Such research seeks to understand fluid dynamics, among many other related areas such as liquid crystals and droplet evaporation.

The Department of Mathematics & Statistics also demonstrates expertise in population modelling & epidemiology, stochastic analysis, applied analysis and scientific computing. Access world leading mathematical and statistical Open Access research!

The research carried out in the past at the University of Strathclyde into Thin-Walled Structures is briefly reviewed in this paper. Various areas of thin-walled structures are considered, including cold-formed steel structures, plates and shells, storage and pressure vessels, and piping. The research is discussed largely with reference to the PhD projects successfully completed in the University, and particularly in the Mechanical Engineering Department, but involvement in design codes, design courses, industrial research and development and collaboration with other organisations is also briefly outlined. Paper presented at the 11th Symposium on the Stability of Structures, Zakopane, Poland, September 2006.
