New group member Majid Moeinifard

Majid Moeinifard received his Master degree in Mechanical engineering in March 2016 under the supervision of Professor Gholamhossein Liaghat at Tarbiat Modares University (TMU), Iran. His project was carried out on mechanical behavior of grid-stiffened composite cylindrical shells under low velocity axial impact.

He has an experimental background in mechanical testing under quasi-static and dynamic loading conditions, manufacturing composite shells and plates, and crashworthiness analysis.

From December 2016 he is employed as a PhD student in Polymer Technology group, to be working on the project: “Predictive modelling of mechanical anisotropy in oriented semi-crystalline polymers directly from morphological characteristics”.
