Dr Richard Windslow has successfully defended his PhD thesis on "Computational Modelling of Fracture Processes in Elastomeric Seals." This project was sponsored by Schlumberger, the worlds largest oilfield services company. They have a significant interest in predicting the lifetime of a very diverse range of elastomer components. Richard was supervised by Prof. James Busfield (at QMUL) and Mark Jiskoot (at Schlumberger). Both of the examiners were very impressed by Richard's thesis and his performance during the oral examination. Richard is the third member of James' group after David Stratford Devalba and Gabriele Frediani to complete his PhD successfully in 2018.
