Rainer Groh is a Research Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in the Department of Aerospace Engineering. After graduating with a MEng in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Bath in 2011, Rainer completed his PhD at the Centre for Doctoral Training of the Bristol Composites Institute in 2015. While the research of his PhD thesis focused on modelling 3D stress fields in highly heterogenous and variable-stiffness composite laminates, his current research lies in the stability and bifurcation analysis of slender engineering and biological structures. Specifically, his work couples nonlinear finite element methods with numerical continuation algorithms to uncover and ...
