Rheo-Inforced composite optimisation for impact and anti-vibration applications

By means of numerical modeling my work will present the optimisation of an advanced energy absorbing material. This composite is made of viscoelastic (VES) solid and Shear thickening Fluid (STF). It will be presented the optimisation of the amount of energy that a STF-impregnated material can dissipate under impact or vibration application. The aims of the work are: 1) Develop a numerical solver for STF fluid-structure interaction (SFSI) problem; 2) Investigate the behaviour of a SFSI system; 3) Using the developed numerical solver to optimise the "Rheo-Inforced" composite.
