Biography

Dr. David Tanner received his degree (BA, BAI) in Mechanical / Manufacturing Engineering from Trinity College, Dublin in 1995. He then moved to the University of Limerick, where he completed his PhD entitled 'Measurement and finite element prediction of residual stresses in aluminium alloy 7010 forgings' with Dr JS Robinson. After a one year post-doc at the University of Limerick, he worked from 1999 to 2001 with Alcan International research laboratories in Banbury, UK, on prediction and testing of the performance of aluminium joints for applications in the Jaguar XJ8.David returned to the University of Limerick in 2001 to work on a transmission electron microscopy (TEM) based project investigating welding technology of power plant steels (SmartWeld). He managed the TEM facility at the Materials and Surface Science Institute (MSSI) prior to obtaining a position as lecturer in Manufacturing Process Technology in September 2005 in the Manufacturing & Operations Engineering Department. David is now a member of the Bernal Institute and continues to undertake research in the areas of TEM and finite element analysis of metal working processes. He is currently Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs in the Faculty of Science and Engineering and continues to work on industrially relevant research projects in the areas of investment casting and additive manufacturing processes.

Research Interests

1) Finite element analysis of nebuliser devices to aid manufacture and design;
2) Optimization of production processes for contact lens manufacture;
3) Improvement of investment casting processing for sustainable biomedical device manufacture;
4) Development of blown powder additive manufacturing technology for jet engine repair;
5) Development of high power laser ablation process for polycrystalline diamond polishing;
6) Residual stress determination and prediction methods.
