” Failure analysis into root fillet region of spline ” 

The judging panel commented:

” A very well written and presented report and interesting topic. The comparison of the different methods raises some interesting concepts which were discussed very well. Some further exploration on the impacts of the mesh refinement requirements and some convergence studies would have been a good addition. Overall a very good topic and thesis with great relevance to the power transmission sector. ”
