Design and Evaluation of Sustainable Polymeric Composites for 3D Printing

  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
This project aims to use biodegradable filers and matrices to manufacture polymer composite 3D printing filaments. Processing will start with blending of suitable materials and then filaments will be produced to standard sizes. Read more

Composites Manufacturing via Liquid Injection Moulding - Process Modelling and Optimization

  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
Liquid injection moulding is a commonly used process for manufacturing composites parts using short fibres. However, the processing/flow behaviour of these processes are really complicated and has not been well-understood yet. Read more

Improving the mechanical properties of carbon fibre composites via inkjet printed polymer inclusions

Carbon fibre composites have been toughened, and strengthened, by using inkjet printing to deposit discrete droplets of polymer onto the pre-preg that is used to produce the final composite material. Read more

Self-Assembled MOF Composites

The PhD project will focus on the preparation of metal-organic framework (MOF) composite materials. In particular, we will study the self-assembly of crystalline MOFs into arrays using the principles of supramolecular chemistry. Read more

Graphene composites from recycling lithium-ion batteries

Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are widely commercially used in portable electronic devices, power tools, medical devices, hybrid/electric vehicles due to their relatively low weight, high energy density, high operating voltage and low discharge rate. Read more

An investigation of the Fibre-Matrix Interface of Laser Processed Composite Materials

The aim of this project, co-founded by CAV Systems, a significant UK aerospace manufacturer, is to understand and quantify the impact that laser processing has on the material, environmental and fatigue properties of a fibre-reinforced polymer composite, particularly at the fibre-matrix interface level, through extensive experimental investigation.

Confinement of Lanthanide Molecular Nanomagnets in Carbon Nanotubes

  Research Group: Chemistry
In 2025, the data storage industry is expected to be worth over $118 billion. There is a pressing need for innovative ways of storing more data whilst reducing the physical size of the storage medium. Read more

Sustainable and controlled drug delivery to fight global antimicrobial resistance (AMR) using hybrid porous nano containers

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Growing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the major global challenges and it is often linked to the use of unnecessarily high doses of orally administered antibiotics following medical surgeries and infections. Read more

PhD studentships: Computational modelling and validation of next generation hydrogen storage materials - ENG 1616

We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated and enthusiastic doctoral student at the University of Nottingham to perform computational research aimed at developing novel metal hydrides and metal complex hydrides for energy storage applications. Read more

PhD Studentship in Shear band modelling of Plastic Bonded Explosives

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of Mechanics of Materials leading to the award of a PhD degree. The post is supported by a bursary and fees (at the UK student rate) provided by our research collaborators AWE, Aldermaston, Reading RG7 4PR. Read more
