  Design and productionisation of aerodynamic bearings using foil and hybrid air bearing technology for high speed turbo-machinery applications
  Prof S Spence
Application Deadline: 27 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is funded by EPSRC and Westwind Ltd, which is the world’s leading specialist air bearing designer and manufacturer.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in The effect of non-neutral winds on wind power aerodynamics
  Dr M Placidi, Dr P Hancock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Renewable sources provided 29.3% of the electricity generated in the UK in 2017, with offshore wind turbines producing some 21% of that, and registering an increased capacity of 27% during the same year [1]; these trends are predicted to grow in line with 2030 and 2050 targets [2].
  Ice accretion on wind turbine blades
  Dr Y Lin, Prof J Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The abundant wind resource in cold and high altitude regions in the world is attractive for the increasing demand for renewable wind power production.
  Modelling Aircraft Fatigue Load Spectra and the Effect of Novel Aircraft Designs
  Dr A Murphy, Dr M Geron
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is funded through a prestigious EPSRC iCASE award and will be carried out within a large research team (including academics, PhDs and Post-Doctoral researchers) who conduct exciting and innovative research in collaboration with Rolls-Royce.
  Integrated Aero/Hydro/Structural Analysis and Multi-objective Optimisation of Floating Wind Turbines
  Dr A Maheri, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Floating wind energy is potentially a highly scalable future energy source. Almost 80% of the Europe wind resources are in waters with +60 m depth, where floating offshore wind turbines are deemed to be the natural solutions.
  Stochastic response characterisation and reliability driven optimisation of floating wind turbines
  Dr S Sriramula, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the wind turbine installations move to deep-water environments, there is an increasing focus on the design considerations for floating wind turbines (FWTs).
  Variable Pitch Fan Reverse Thrust Performance; Engine Operability and Design Studies
  Prof V Pachidis
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship within the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in Aero Systems Design, Integration & Performance at Cranfield University.
  Dynamics and Control of Flapping Wing Micro Air Vehicles Inspired by Monarch Butterflies
  Prof T Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Flight Dynamics and Control Laboratory (http://fdcl.seas.gwu.edu) at The George Washington University, Washington DC, USA is looking for a doctoral candidate in robotics and control.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Optical Fibre Sensing for Offshore Renewable Energy (Fraunhofer)
  Dr W N MacPherson, Dr Brian Sellar
Application Deadline: 30 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project not available to non UK/EU applicants. Project Description. Distributed optical fibre sensing is a topic of great industrial relevance.
  An investigation into transonic flows over high pressure gas turbine blade tip
  Dr Z Saleh, Prof J Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Propulsion, in particular the gas turbine engines are a significantly important theme in the aerospace industry, any enhancement in the performance of these engines will have a great impact on the economics of the aviation sector [Stephens et al, 2007].
