  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.
  Value-Driven Design Techniques for More-Electric-Aircraft: Multi-Stage Development Programmes
  Dr P Hollingsworth, Dr N Bojdo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of modern aircraft engines is inherently a multi-stage process with two distinct customers. In the first stage of the development programme the engine manufacturer has ‘buy’ their way onto the airframe.
  Improving our understanding of ice cloud microphysics using new aircraft and multi-wavelength radar measurements
  Dr C Westbrook, Dr T Stein, Dr S Mason
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice particles in clouds play an important role for both weather and climate prediction. Half of all precipitation globally is initiated through the formation of ice, while the radiative impact of ice clouds is very important because of their widespread coverage.
  Aircraft Electrification
  Research Group: Energy Systems
  Dr J Marco, Dr A Barai
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT OVERVIEW. This fully funded PhD studentship represents a unique opportunity to undertake advanced characterisation, control system design and modelling research in close partnership with Vertical Aerospace (http://www.vertical-aerospace.com).
  Evaluating the Met Office CASIM cloud microphysics model using research aircraft and polarimetric radars
  Dr J Crosier, Dr P Connolly
Application Deadline: 7 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accurate measurement of the ice particle size distribution (PSD) is a key requirement for numerical simulations of clouds. Knowledge of how the ice PSD changes during cloud evolution from ice nucleation to precipitation will enable an improved understanding of the cloud microphysical processes.
  USW DTA Energy Studentship: Optimised drive topologies for energy efficient electric aircraft platform
  Dr R Navaratne
Application Deadline: 18 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

USW is part of the Doctoral Training Alliance (DTA) in Energy, a University Alliance initiative which aims to deliver a new approach to postgraduate research opportunities.
  Global supply chain and resource management for aircraft fleets in uncertain environments
  Research Group: Operational Research
  Dr S Coniglio, Prof J Fliege
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We want to develop novel mathematical models and optimisation algorithms for joint supply chain and resource management in an uncertain environment.
  Diamond Magnetometry in Cars and Aircraft
  Dr G Morley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The sensing of weak magnetic fields has important applications in geo-surveying, navigation, and medicine. To measure them requires that we use the most sensitive detection techniques, however, to be commercially viable this must be done at an affordable cost.
  Enhancement of electrical conductivity of carbon fibre composite for resisting lightening strike on aircrafts
  Dr H Hadavinia, Prof T Zhang, Prof D Wertheim, Dr A Curley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the structure of new advanced civil aircrafts the main fuselage structures are being redesigned to use carbon fibre-reinforced composites (CFRP) mainly due to their lightweight, high specific stiffness and strength.
  Stability of fluid flows over deformed and moving surfaces
  Dr C Davies
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will use a mixture of mathematical analysis and novel numerical simulation methods to investigate some fundamental features of disturbance wave development in fluid boundary-layer flows.
