Tailoring the Thermomechanical Properties of High Performance Aerospace & Automotive Composite Materials

Interested in high performance, lightweight composite materials? Take advantage of the fact that companies in the aerospace and automotive sectors are currently looking for good materials scientists and engineers with a composites PhD!. Read more

Fracture of Automotive Advanced High Strength Steels

Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) are increasingly used throughout the chassis of modern cars since they provide a high strength-to-weight ratio and improved crashworthiness due to greater energy absorption capabilities. Read more

Giving new life to scrap metals by advanced manufacturing

Light weight alloys such as aluminum and magnesium are increasingly used in the automotive and aerospace industries. There is a need for recycling scrap material such as swarf from machining and other processes. Read more

The Development of New Models for the Prediction of Vehicle Brake Judder Under Transient Conditions

  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
The increasing provision of regenerative braking on road vehicles will enable the friction brakes to be downsized, with an associated weight and cost saving, but their performance (torque generated, fade resistance, durability, pedal feel and resistance to the development of judder) must meet established user standards. Read more

Characterisation and Modelling of Catalysts for Euro 7 Application

The global effort to improve air quality and the associated implementation of emission regulations have been major driving factors for the development and adoption of new after-treatment technologies for automotive vehicles. Read more

PhD Studentship Opportunity: Scalability of high-power per weight halide perovskites photovoltaics

  Research Group: Advanced Technology Institute
The UK strategy for a Net Zero economy by 2050 and the growing electrification of automotive and aircrafts is fuelling investments in the low carbon economy, predicted to be £170 billion per year by 2030. Read more

Robotic and Cyber-Physical Materials

Robotic or Cyber-Physical materials use embedded sensing, actuation and control to realise novel and improved performance over conventional or passive materials [1]. Read more

High energy orbital oscillations induced in an artificial gravity system

This PhD project aims to better understand and control the high energy orbital oscillations from a given resonator placed within a rotational environment that is subjected to high levels of centripetal acceleration manifesting as artificial gravity. Read more

Welding and joining of advanced dissimilar lightweight alloys

  Research Group: Advanced Automotive Analytics Research Institute
The automotive industry’s interest in the use of lightweight materials has significantly increased in recent years due to an enhanced demand for fuel efficiency and clean green technologies that improve environmental conditions. Read more
