  Development of finite element-based computational framework for assessing the structural performance of advanced composite structures
  Dr Z Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites consisting of two-dimensional reinforcement are used in a variety of industrial applications such as aerospace, automotive, marine, rail, energy, civil structures, biomedical, and oil and gas.
  Predicting fracture risk in metastatic bone disease: A combined finite element modelling and machine learning approach
  Prof P Pankaj
Application Deadline: 18 December 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The femur (or thighbone) is a common site for the growth of tumours due to different types of cancers that originate elsewhere but spread to the bone.
  PhD vacancy (4 years) on computational mechanics of large wind turbine blades
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last years, UGent-MMS has developed the stand-alone BladeMesher software for generating finite element models of large wind turbine blades.
  Finite element analysis of energy diaphragm walls
  Dr Y Rui, Prof A Ivanovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In 2008, the UK government set an ambitious target for 2050 with an emphasis on reducing UK greenhouse gas emissions. Hence, the development of renewable energy technologies is therefore imperative to ensure the completion of this target.
  Finite element analysis of energy tunnels

  Machine Learning-based Generalized Multiscale Finite Element Method and Its Application in Reservoir Simulation
  Dr J Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The candidate should have a first class or upper second class honours degree, or a master’s degree (or equivalent qualification), in Mathematics or Computer Science.
  Finite element analysis and experiments on hybrid laser assisted high-speed machining
  Dr S Goel
Application Deadline: 15 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Depending on the specifications (type, pulse, energy and power), a Laser can either be used for efficient material removal, forming, bending, joining or for deposition.
  Modelling towed fishing gears on seabed sediment
  Prof A Ivanovic, Dr R Neilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will involve either/ both numerical and physical modelling of the contact between fishing gear components and the seabed and is part of larger research projects being carried out in collaboration with DTU Aqua (Denmark) to develop fishing gears that are more environmentally friendly, both in terms of fuel usage and bottom contact.
  Investigation of Tectonic Effects on Pipeline Stabilty
  Dr S Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pipelines make an important group of structures called lifelines, as they support conducting water, oil and gas essential for life.
  CardioSim: Experimental and Numerical Simulation of Cardiac Pathologies
  Dr C Conway
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this PhD project is develop novel experimental and computational models of cardiac pathologies. Background. High-fidelity benchtop cardiac models enable efficient medical device testing, interventional training, and procedure demonstration.
  Modelling Creep-Fatigue Damage and Life Prediction for Gas Turbine Rotors
  Prof W Sun
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current market conditions are such that combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants are now considering double two-shift operation, so potentially accruing upwards of 600 starts per year.

  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.
  New mixed methods for interface problems in continuum mechanics
  Assoc Prof R Ruiz Baier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD thesis is available to work on the design, analysis, and implementation of new mixed finite element methods for interface problems involving fluid-structure interaction in porous composite materials.
