Prof Paul Fromme profile picture
  • Professor of Mechanics
  • Dept of Mechanical Engineering
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

Dr Paul Fromme joined the Department as a Lecturer in 2003. He had worked as a postdoctoral Research Associate at Imperial College London after completing his PhD at ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

Research Summary

Paul Fromme's research interests lie in the application of ultrasonic waves for nondestructive testing and structural integrity monitoring. The main focus of his research has been the experimental, numerical, and analytical study of the propagation and scattering characteristics of guided waves in plates. In collaboration with an aerospace company, he studied the interaction of guided waves with fatigue cracks at fastener holes in aircraft fuselages. In collaboration with other UK universities, he investigated the possibility of applying guided waves, array, and distributed sensors technology for the permanent structural integrity monitoring of oil and rail industry structures. Paul Fromme is currently working on further applications of ultrasound, including bio-medical testing and signal processing.

Teaching Summary

Paul Fromme is the module coordinator for the MSc module on Vibrations and Acoustics. He lectures MSc students on Advanced Vibrations. and first-year students on Applied Mechanics.
