Staff Profile:Professor George Jeronimidis

Professor George Jeronimidis
Job Title:
Sessional Lecturer
Retired from all University Responsibilities.
Areas of Interest:
Current research interests cover biomimetics ("The abstraction of good design from nature"), plant and animal biomechanics, smart materials and structures, mechanics of composite materials, design of composite structures and the application of biomimetic concepts to architecture. Biomimetic projects include developments of smart textiles, muscle-type actuators, integral strain sensors, impact-energy absorbing materials, natural fibre-based composites, development of cellular materials from renewable starch sources, bio-inspired air-flow sensors. Composite-related projects include the design of smart, self-regulating composite wind turbine blades, friendly suspension systems for road and rail transport which minimize damage to infrastructure, design and development of composite flywheels for "hybrid" urban mass transport systems. These research activities have been funded by research councils, European Union, industry, government departments in the UK and the US.
