Introducing Wilde’s Newest Technical Team Member…
February 13th, 2017
Wilde continues to attract highly talented engineers who can offer the best skills and expertise to our clients. We’re pleased to introduce our newest member of the team, Anthony Xenakis.
Anthony Xenakis completed his undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens. In his dissertation, he had the chance to work on CFD simulations of bioengineering flows mainly in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms. A number of publications came out of this, plus follow-on research focusing on the study of failure mechanisms of aneurysm bypass grafts.
Anthony then went on to complete his PhD in Environmental Engineering at the University of Manchester. In his thesis, he developed a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (a particle-based CFD method) approach to study multiphase flows which includes phases with non-Newtonian behaviour. The main focus of his studies was environmental applications such as landslide-generated tsunamis.
In addition to his academic experience, Anthony has had the opportunity to apply his simulation engineering expertise to various commercial projects, including the product development of prototype wind-turbines and the study of ventilation systems for operation theatres.
As a new member of the Design Simulation team in Wilde Analysis, Anthony will have the opportunity to work on both CFD and FEA projects for some of the UK’s leading engineering companies. Currently he is working on a CFD project for the Oil and Gas industry.
