Areas of expertise

Background

Dr Yasaee received his MEng degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2008 at Imperial College. He obtained his PhD from the Aerospace Department at University of Bristol in 2012, investigating the management of delamination damage in composite materials using discrete interleaving technologies.
He then joined Rolls-Royce Composites University Technology Centre (UTC) as a Research Associate where his research was focussed on the experimental characterisation of through thickness reinforced (TTR) composites under quasi-static and dynamic impact loading. In 2016, Dr Yasaee joined Cranfield University as a Lecturer in Lightweight Structures.

Current activities

Dr Yasaee's current research interests include developing hierarchical damage tolerant composite structures and designing lightweight functionally graded structures for improved damage resistant. He has extensive expertise in developing novel experimental techniques and analysis to characterise fracture and failure of composite materials at both quasi-static and dynamic impact conditions.
