  Modelling of Dislocation-Microstructure Interaction at a Short Crack Tip - Ref: LG1UF2018
  Dr L Zhao
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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: Crack behaviour in a residual stress field at fillet welds in ship structures
  Mr G Wu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Welding residual stresses are complex in fillet welds used to join longitudinal stiffened plate at the bottom of ship structures that are exposed to complex cyclic loads.
  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: 25 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) – Crack Tip Constraint in Typical High Strength Steel Components in Arctic Conditions (NSIRC 183)
  Dr R Kulka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background.
  PhD Studentship in the influence of inelastic damage on the crack growth behaviour of 316H stainless steels
  Dr C Davies
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of fracture mechanics leading to the award of a PhD degree. Please check your suitability at the following web site.
  Experimental and numerical characterisation and modelling of viscoelastic/viscoplastic crack growth in adhesive joints
  Dr G Alfano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesive bonding is a widely used technique in the aerospace and automotive industry, whose advantages with respect to more conventional connections of structural components include the great reduction of stress concentration and weight.
  Thermo-Mechanical Modelling for Structural Ceramics with Johnson Matthey
  Prof S Blackburn
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fatigue fracture is one of the failure modes in engineering ceramics where crack initiates, propagates, and finally results in failure under cyclic thermal loading.
  Source mechanics of fluid driven volcanic Earthquakes
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Development of inspection techniques for non-sharp defects (NSIRC 172a)
  Dr C Nageswaran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background/Description. The science of fracture mechanics, and hence the engineering assessments based on fracture mechanics, assume a sharp crack is present.
  The Influence of Combined Oxidation and Fatigue Conditions on the Endurance of Titanium Alloys
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Prof P Prangnell, Dr J Fonseca
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

High performance titanium alloys are being increasingly used in airframes where elevated temperatures can be experienced in the engine pylons.
