Dr S.D. Guest Simon Guest



Introduction

Simon Guest is a Reader in Structural Mechanics, in the Structures Group of the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge. His teaching is in structural mechanics, and his research straddles the border between traditional structural mechanics, and the study of mechanisms. He is also a fellow of Trinity Hall. He is currently Head of Civil Engineering.

New Conference Proceedings

Proceedings The proceedings of the Royal Society Theo Murphy Meeting: Rigidity of periodic and symmetric structures in nature and engineering, organised and edited by Simon D. Guest, Patrick W. Fowler and Stephen C. Power, are now available.

Research

My research straddles the border between traditional structural mechanics, and the study of mechanisms; this academic area turns out to encompass many interesting technologies and provide many exciting and challenging problems. Much of my work is with the Advanced Structures Group.

The following pages describe my work in a number of areas:

Teaching

In 2016-17 I am teaching a first year course in structural mechanics, and a third year course on buckling and instability.

Publications

A list of my publications is available.
