The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in March 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Glass and glass-ceramic materials play pivotal roles in science and technology, where attributes such as their strength, transparency and mouldability lead to applications that range from lasers to cover glass.
This project is funded by the UK’s Ministry of Defence and involves Rolls Royce and the University of Birmingham. It is a PhD studentship that is focused on developing new materials that both possess specific electromagnetic properties and are also capable of withstanding high temperatures.
The School of Engineering & Physical Sciences at Heriot-Watt University is now advertising fully funded Doctoral Training Partnerships and James Watt Scholarships in the School of Engineering & Physical Sciences for 2019.
In the last two decades, Mechanics of Materials as a discipline has experienced a type of revival. The main reason for this has been a continuing introduction of new materials (or even their classes) with extraordinary microstructures, properties and performance.
The long eighteenth century was a transformative period for the Arts in Britain. During the century, schools, theories and institutions emerged that encouraged the British to conceive of the various Arts as defined by difference (rather than similarity) from each other.
The proposed research aims to develop Ultra High Capacity Tensiometers (UHCT) that can measure soil suctions in the range of 7-10MPa with the intent of overcoming existing limitations with high capacity tensiometers (HCT).
Nanomaterials are now in our everyday life in many different fields, from automobile, medicine, electronics and more. Nevertheless, there are still classes of materials, whose potential needs to be developed.
