  Sensitivity of crack growth behavior to corrosive environment
  Prof M Brochu, Prof J Mauzeroll
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
The project, "Sensitivity of crack growth behavior to corrosive environment" is part of project FATCO 2019. "Fatigue and corrosion-fatigue behavior of 13Cr-4Ni steels and additively manufactured alloys for application to large-size components such as hydraulic turbines and machinery.".
  Modelling of Dislocation-Microstructure Interaction at a Short Crack Tip - Ref: LG1UF2018
  Dr L Zhao
Applications accepted all year round
Nickel-based superalloys are particularly used in applications involving high temperatures and stresses, such as the critical gas-turbine blades and discs in aerospace and power-generation industries.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) Local detection of hydrogen in steels using neutron diffraction imaging
  Dr K Govender, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Course Description. Background. Steels used in offshore flowlines, pipelines and risers are susceptible to corrosion fatigue in the presence of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and moisture present in oil and gas production fluids.
  Effect of hydrogen release on intergranular crack propagation mechanisms
  Prof M Brochu, Prof J Mauzeroll
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019
The project, "Effect of hydrogen release on intergranular crack propagation mechanisms" is part of project FATCO 2019. "Fatigue and corrosion-fatigue behavior of 13Cr-4Ni steels and additively manufactured alloys for application to large-size components such as hydraulic turbines and machinery.".
  Investigating fatigue damage mechanisms in welds and in additively manufactured parts by cross-referencing 3D defect distributions from CT scans, stress conditions and actual crack path
  Prof M Brochu, Prof R Tovo
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
This project takes part partially in both Canada and Italy!. The project, "Investigating fatigue damage mechanisms in welds and in additively manufactured parts by cross-referencing 3D defect distributions from CT scans, stress conditions and actual crack path" is part of project FATCO 2019.
  Mechanistic Studies of Fatigue in Austenitic Stainless Steels in a Pressurised Water Reactor Primary Coolant
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr F Scenini, Dr J Fonseca, Prof G Burke
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
Introduction. This project represents an exciting opportunity to work closely with Rolls-Royce in an active international research area and the Materials Performance Centre (MPC).
  Automated crack detection using image processing
  Dr P Murray, Dr G West
Applications accepted all year round
The accurate detection and quantification of cracks and defects in structures such as. bridges, tunnels, roads and offshore pipelines is important to allow owners and operators of these high value assets to understand and quantify their condition.
  Modelling environmentally assisted cracking in Ni-based superalloys
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr J Fonseca
Application Deadline: 15 September 2019
Ni-based superalloys in aircraft engines are routinely subjected to temperatures in the range of 650-700oC during operating conditions.
  Integrating with Renewable Energy Sources: Low Pressure Steam Turbine Last Stage Blade Durability
  Research Group: Engineering Materials
  Prof P.A. Reed
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
The increased deployment of renewable energy sources requires integration with conventional power plant to back-fill the inevitable dips in supply.
