Dr Zafer Kazancι, from the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, has been awarded an Industrial Fellowship by the Royal Academy of Engineering.
Commenting on his award, Dr Kazancι said: "I am greatly honoured to have been awarded Royal Academy of Engineering Industrial Fellowship, which will help me to build a long-term collaboration with Bombardier in an exciting area.
"The focus will be on the materials modelling and numerical simulation of low-velocity impact response onto a composite sandwich aircraft panel utilising auxetic cores, but the principles herein can be applied to all composite sandwich panels used in other industries.
"I would like to thank the Academy, Queen's University Belfast, Advanced Composites Research Group (ACRG) and Bombardier for giving me this fantastic opportunity to work together."
