Wave scattering

Jon Trevelyan is a Professor in the Mechanics group at the School of Engineering, Durham University. His research work is in computational mechanics, based mostly around the Boundary Element Method (BEM) and its applications in stress analysis, mechanical design and wave problems. He is a chartered mechanical engineer with international experience in the Computer Aided Engineering software industry.


B.Sc. in Civil Engineering, University of Bristol, 1980.

Ph.D. in Civil Engineering, University of Bristol, 1984. The assessment of the dynamic properties of concrete arch dams using transfer function techniques.

From 1985 to 1996, Jon worked at the Computational Mechanics Group, on the commercial BEM software BEASY. For the period 1987 to 1995, he was Vice President of Computational Mechanics, Inc., Billerica, Massachusetts, and responsible for all North American operations of the group.

After a year as a senior lecturer at the University of Brighton, Jon joined the academic staff at Durham in 1996.
