Engineering Simulation Techniques: Outstanding Project Award 2021/2022

Awarded by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers
(IMechE) and NAFEMS

C​ongratulations to our winners of 2021/2022 Award

Engineering Simulation Techniques: Outstanding Project Award 2019/2020

£1,000 1st Prize
Aimee Bridges from Queen’s University Belfast
“Assessing the Effects of Seawater Aging on Marine Structures Subjected to Impact Loading

£500 2nd Prize
Thomas Chiu from University of Manchester
“Buckling Analysis of Defective Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Using Finite Element Analysis”

In recognition of the importance of the University Sector to the advancement of numerical simulation, and to encourage undergraduate students to work in these fields, the IMechE and NAFEMS have established a new student competition! The award is aimed at those studying an undergraduate degree that is accredited by the IMechE, and who are completing a project that involves the use of engineering simulation techniques such as finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics or multi-body dynamics, boundary element method, programming software, spreadsheets etc..

Please note that this initiative is jointly organised by the STMG- Structural Technology and Materials Group of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers - and the NAFEMS UK Steering Committee.


How to participate


With over 115,000 members in 140 countries, the IMechE have been at the heart of the UK mechanical engineering profession since 1847.

Throughout the constantly evolving work of mechanical engineers, one institution has been at the heart of the world’s most important and dynamic industries since its formation in 1847. Today, working hard to support their 115,000 members, the Institution is the market leader among professional engineering bodies. It is a go-ahead organization with global reach that truly represents and reflects the profession: encouraging professional registration and long-term career development.
