Dr Stefan Güttel, Professor Nick Higham, and Professor Françoise Tisseur have been awarded a new 30-month project with Arup, a multidisciplinary engineering firm operating in all areas of built environment.

This Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP), funded by Arup and Innovate UK, aims to embed new matrix eigenvalue solvers into Arup’s next generation software for structural engineering simulation.

The Numerical Linear Algebra  (NLA) group team will be working with Dr Stephen Hendry and Dr Ramaseshan Kannan of Arup, along with a KTP Associate, for which the position is advertised here.

The project builds on a long history of collaboration between Arup and the NLA Group, which has  previously led to the development of “model stability analysis” in Arup’s flagship structural engineering simulation package, Oasys GSA (see the paper What is Your Structural Model Not Telling You?).
