  Better discrete-element simulations through detailed finite-element contact modelling
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Discrete Element Method (DEM) is increasingly used in industry and academia, to simulate particulate materials. DEM models individual particles, and thus requires efficient yet realistic calculation of inter-particle forces through an appropriate contact law.
  Quantum Optomechanical Ultrasound Sensing
  Prof Warwick Bowen, Dr G Harris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Summary. Quantum optomechanics explores the interaction between light and mechanical motion at a level where the quantised nature of light, or the zero-point fluctuations of motion, play a significant role.
  Analysis of damage mechanisms in composite risers and umbilicals
  Dr M Menshykova, Dr O Menshykov, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

With increasing water depth, especially in excess of 1000 m, both platform designs and the design of the risers and umbilicals begin to become highly weight-sensitive.
  Finite Elements Techniques in 3D Dynamic Fracture Mechanics
  Dr M Menshykova, Dr O Menshykov, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

New high-tech materials allow a significant increase in strength, stiffness and safety level in structures. However, failure can still occur for many other reasons, including uncertainties in the loading or environmental conditions and deficiencies in construction.
  Numerical modelling of cracked engineering materials under dynamic loading
  Dr O Menshykov, Dr M Menshykova, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Optimal Design of fibre reinforced composite pipes
  Dr O Menshykov, Dr M Menshykova, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently, the application of composite materials in oil and gas industry lacks proven test methodologies and understanding of technical and fundamental issues relevant specifically to composite materials and structures.
  A linear peristaltic pump for biological media
  Dr A Gatto, Prof T Anson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Established methods used to transport biological media such as axial, centrifugal and peristaltic pumps can cause damage to micro organisms due to shear stress, crushing and high velocity movement.
  PhD vacancy (4 years) on nondestructive testing (NDT) of composites using Guided Waves
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop robust guided waves NDT methods that can detect defects in Fiber reinforced plastic parts (focus on aerospace and automotive industry).
  Driving forward the future of magnetic materials through advanced micromagnetic simulation
  Dr J Dean
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

NOTE. This is an industrial CASE (Cooperative Awards in Science & Technology) award supported by Volkswagen (VW) and involves a three-month placement at their Research Centre in Wolfsburg, Germany.
