Effect of obesity on bone strength and implication on the risk of hip fracture

There is a clear and unmet need to address the diagnosis of hip fracture risk associated with osteoporosis. Whereas low weight is a well-documented risk factor for future bone fractures, a high body weight seems to protect against hip fracture. Read more

Creating novel testing technologies for patient specific fracture fixation devices

Applications are invited for a three year self-funded Postgraduate Research project, to be undertaken at Aston University. The successful applicant will join an established experimental group working on biomaterials for orthopaedic implants. . Read more

PhD Studentship - Reducing the Population Impact of Hip Fractures in Aberdeen

As one of the most common reasons for people requiring unscheduled hospital care in Grampian, with about 600 cases a year, hip fractures have a significant impact on the achievement of the Community Plan Stretch Target 11, healthy life expectancy. Read more

Image-based fracture mechanics of bone tissue

Bone is a highly dynamic tissue that growths and adapts during life in response to mechanical loading. However, aging and disease deteriorate bone quality, leading to higher fracture incidence. Read more

Accelerating the Design of Patient-Specific Fracture Fixation

The design and advanced manufacturing of patient-specific biomedical implants is set to revolutionise healthcare. However, the costly design framework which is currently required to create personalised 3D digital models is a huge barrier to implementation in most clinical settings. Read more

Research Studentship in ‘Deformation and fracture of TRISO fuel particles’

Research Studentship in ‘Deformation and fracture of TRISO fuel particles’. 3.5-year D.Phil. studentship. Supervisor. Prof Dong (Lilly) Liu and Prof Emilio Martinez-Paneda. Read more

Fracture of Automotive Advanced High Strength Steels

Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) are increasingly used throughout the chassis of modern cars since they provide a high strength-to-weight ratio and improved crashworthiness due to greater energy absorption capabilities. 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

Fatigue and Fracture of Fibre Composites

Aircraft manufacturers are now competing based on their aircraft’s fuel efficiency due to the high cost of aviation fuel. As a result, in recent years, these manufacturers have turned more and more to the use of lightweight composites in their designs for almost every component of their aircraft. Read more

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

Investigating plastic behaviour in immature bones

There are many differences in mechanical properties between immature and adult bones. While adult bones have been studied extensively, particularly in relation to non-healthy ageing and the risk of fracture, there has been a lack of study on immature or young bones and their mechanical properties.

Investigating functional and kinematic alterations in upper limb motion following clavicular malunions in adults using 3-D kinematic analysis and functional tasks.

Current evidence suggests displaced, mid-shaft clavicle fractures can be managed conservatively with satisfactory long-term functional outcomes, although critically other studies suggest 42% of people have residual sequalae; including deficit in shoulder strength and endurance. Read more
