AuthorsNadarajah, Nithurshan*Nadarajah, Nithurshan*
In 2009, Nithurshan Nadaraj started studying an undergraduate course at Monash, in the field of Mechanical Engineering. The following four years he built the fundamentals of this field. Currently he is working on the use of Lamb waves for SHM purposes.

Dr Francis Rose is currently an Emeritus Research Leader in the Air Vehicles Division of DSTO, following his previous appointment as Chief Scientist at the Platform Sciences Laboratory, DSTO. He has contributed seminal work on crack bridging which now forms the basis for the design of bonded repairs to aircraft structures (known as the Rose model). His theory of transformation toughening in partially stabilised zirconia provided new insights into the trade-off between strength and toughness in this new class of high-toughness ceramics, for which he has received international acclaim. He has also contributed a comprehensive analysis of laser-generated ultrasound that has become a standard reference in the emerging field of laser ultrasonics, as well as an elegant theoretical model for eddy-current detection of cracks in thin sheets, and a novel approach to detecting multiple, but individually small, cracks, both of which have been confirmed experimentally. In 1995, he initiated and led a comprehensive research program in support of the structural integrity management of the RAAF F-111 fleet to a planned withdrawal date of 2020, with Australia as the sole operator of this aircraft type in the world. In 2008, he was awarded the prestigious A. G. M. Michell medal by the Institution of Engineers, Australia, for his research and professional contributions to Applied Mechanics.
