Development of resilient batteries : 3D tomography of electrode cracking mechanisms, and methods for mitigation

This EPSRC studentship is an exciting opportunity to work with the NanoLAB group at The University of Sheffield, the Faraday Institution FutureCAT project and industrial partners to determine the evolution/degradation of batteries in 3D using advanced tomographic methodologies. Read more

Numerical modelling of cracked engineering materials under dynamic loading

It is common knowledge that all existing structural materials contain various inter- and intra-component cracks and crack-like defects which appear in materials during fabrication or in-service. Read more

Automated Solar Cells Crack Detection using AI techniques

  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
The accurate detection and quantification of cracks and defects in structures such as solar cells are essential to allow owners and operators of these high-value assets to understand and quantify their condition. Read more

(CDT Advanced Metallic Systems) A Digital Twin of abnormally coarse grain structures in critical titanium forgings for military aircraft applications

  Research Group: Advanced Metallic Systems CDT
This project is based at the University of Manchester and is sponsored by DSTL and seeks candidates with a 2.1 or 1st class degree in a STEM discipline, particularly Applied Mathematics, Materials Science, Physics or Mechanical Engineering with an interest in computational modelling. 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

(CDT Advanced Metallic Systems) Titanium cold dwell fatigue loading - effect of stress concentrations

  Research Group: Advanced Metallic Systems CDT
This project is based at the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester, and is sponsored by Airbus. We are seeking a UK national with a 2.1 or 1st class degree in a STEM discipline. Read more

(CDT Advanced Metallic Systems) Environmentally Assisted Cracking of High Strength Al Alloys – transition from initiation to sustainable cracking

  Research Group: Advanced Metallic Systems CDT
This project is based at the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester, and is sponsored by Airbus. We are seeking a UK national with a 2.1 or 1st class degree in a STEM discipline. 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

Distinct Element Modelling of masonry structures

A large number of residential and historical structures in the UK and around the world are made of masonry. Due to the low tensile strength and brittle response of these materials, as well as their deterioration (due to aging), masonry structures are particularly vulnerable to natural and man-made hazards. Read more

Understanding the type, distribution and mechanical properties of interfaces in geological systems

Funding and Deadline. To be eligible for support, applicants must be “UK Residents” as defined by the EPSRC1. The studentship is for 3.5 years starting in October 2022 and will provide full coverage of standard tuition fees and an annual tax-free stipend of approximately £17,609. 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
