Über den Autor
Tiedo Tinga holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering (Eindhoven University of Technology) on the development of a micro-mechanical model for Ni-base superalloys in gas turbine blades.
He has been working as a senior scientist at the National Aerospace Laboratory NLR in the Netherlands for almost 10 years. There he ran several research projects in the field of computational mechanics, mainly concerning life assessments of airframe and gas turbine components. Since 2007 he is an associate professor in Maintenance Engineering at the Netherlands Defence Academy and thus involved in the education of future officers for the Dutch Navy, Air force and y. He is also leading the research program on maintenance of military systems, which aims to combine scientific research to innovative maintenance concepts with practical applications within the ministry of Defence. In 2012 he has been appointed as full professor Dynamics Based Maintenance at the University of Twente. He now combines this chair with his position at the Defence Academy.
