Lennard Constantine Burrill was appointed in 1945 professor of naval engineering at Queens College of Durham University, Newcastle upon Tyne. He thus followed his former teacher Sir Westcott S. Abell (1877-1961), who had retired from this chair in 1941. Burrill had begun his professional career in 1929 at the Wallsend Shipyard, acting as a personal assistant to the naval architect. He was concerned with the ship design, ship resistance and propulsion and also associated with investigations concerning vibration, steering, rolling and the general behavior of ships at sea. In 1940, Burrill was transferred to a company as an assistant naval architect. In Birkenhead, he was responsible for the propeller blades, and it was there where he introduced new methods and devices for the complete machining and refined measurement of propeller blades.
\
Burrill's scientific works include a paper on the calculation of marine propellers in 1944, for which he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Institution. The 1943 paper received a similar award for a notable contribution. Another paper on ship vibration was presented to the Transactions of the Northeast Coast Institution of Engineers and Shipbuilders in 1935, for which Burrill was presented the Shipbuilding Gold Medal. This work later formed the basis of Burrill's thesis for the degree of M.Sc. Burrill was a Council Member of the Northeast Coast Institution of Engineers and Shipbuilders, later he was the vice-president of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects.
