crack PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 24 crack PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Numerical Modelling of Cracked Materials under Loading

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Investigation of white etching crack damage mechanism in wind turbine gearbox bearings

Modern wind turbine gearbox bearings are failing prematurely, by white structure flaking and axial cracking, which may be caused by the propagation of subsurface white etching cracks (WECs). Read more

Fully-funded PhD Studentship in Mathematics

The Mathematical Modelling of Structures, Solids and Fluids research group are offering a fully-funded studentship for an outstanding candidate to study for a PhD in Mathematics at Aberystwyth University. Read more

Modelling of Compressive Transverse Cracking on Composite Laminates

In analyses of failure in composite laminates, extended finite element analyses using Abaqus (or Ansys) might prove convenient for the prediction of transversal cracks on composite laminates subjected to compression. Read more

Failure Fundamentals: Understanding the role of Hydrogen in Jet Engine Failure

The Department of Materials at Imperial College London, as part of the new CDT in Materials 4.0, is looking for a candidate to undertake a PhD project in the field of Metallurgy, investigating failure in jet engine materials. Read more

Novel preforms for Automated Fibre Placement

Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) is an emerging technique to manufacture advanced composites for the aerospace industry. One of its main advantages is the possibility to define complex fiber paths to optimize the stiffness for a given loading scenario. Read more

Computational Mechanics of Fracture on Advanced Composite Aerospace Structures

Over the last decade there has been a significant increase in the use of composite laminates in the aerospace industry in a drive to reduce weight and as a result to reduce emissions. Read more

High temperature SEM in-situ micromechanical testing

The Department of Materials at Imperial College London is looking for a candidate to undertake a PhD project in the field of Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) for the next generation of commercial fusion reactors. Read more

Sustainable manufacturing of high-quality compound semiconductor wafers

A PhD student is sought to undertake a project jointly funded by the University of Strathclyde. The project aims to research a novel laser-based manufacturing approach and its testbed for yielding sustainable and high-volume manufacturing of high-quality next-gen semiconductor wafers. Read more
