Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Friction welding of dissimilar alloys is of great interest in many industrial sectors, including Oil and gas, aerospace, automotive, railway and marine industries. During welding, the thermally affected zone (HAZ) and thermo-mechanically affected zone (TMAZ) are developed. In this study, the influence of the microstructure within the TMAZ and TAZ on corrosion resistance will be assessed using electron microscopy and accelerated testing. Surface protective means will be developed for the generation of corrosion resistant surfaces on the weld through further modification of the microstructure.


Funding Notes:

Funding will cover tuition fees and annual maintenance payments of at least the Research Council minimum (currently £13,590) for eligible UK and EU applicants. EU nationals must have lived in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the programme to be eligible for a full award (fees and stipend). EU nationals who have lived elsewhere in the EU for the 3 years prior to the start of the programme would be eligible for a fees-only award.

Applicants should have or expect to achieve a First Class or 2.1 degree in a physical science or similar.
