  Effect of hydrogen on crack tip plasticity in reactor steels
  Prof EA Patterson, Dr M Patel
Applications accepted all year round
The presence of hydrogen is known to accelerate the growth of fatigue cracks in steels. Prior work has suggested that hydrogen disrupts the formation of dislocations at the microscale and causes a localisation of plastic flow ahead of the crack tip at the mesoscale.
  New DIC-Based Material Test Standards: Design and Validation
  Prof F Pierron
Application Deadline: 11 April 2019
Within the past ten years, the availability of digital imaging hardware and powerful image processing algorithms has led to the wide diffusion of strain mapping techniques like Digital Image Correlation (DIC).
  Multi-scale modelling of bone fracture - Ref: SL1UF2018
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round
Bone fracture affects millions of people’s life worldwide. In UK alone, there are approximately more than 850,000 new fractures each year, and the estimated annual cost for bone fracture related treatment reached more than £2 billion.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
  Fracture problems in microstructured materials - Ref: KB2UF2018
  Dr K Baxevanakis
Applications accepted all year round
Fracture in science and technology is understood as the total or partial separation of an originally intact body or structure. This phenomenon may have destructive effects on structures and lead to catastrophic failures, with high economic consequences or, in the worst case, loss of lives.
  Addressing unmet clinical needs in the repair and rehabilitation of non-union fractures - Ref: SL3UF2018
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round
A non-union is a broken bone that fails to heal. These result from both civilian and military injuries and lead to pain, suffering and loss of dignity.
  An integrated approach for damage identification in composite materials - Ref: KB3UF2018
  Dr K Baxevanakis
Applications accepted all year round
Non-destructive inspection based on acoustics is today one the primary methods for the identification of damage precursors in components and structures.
  Performance aspects in the development of the smart prosthetic lower limb - Ref: SL2UF2018
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round
Restoration of human functional activity has been a drive for many centuries dating back to early Egyptian and Greek civilizations.
  PhD Studentship in the field of temperature and strain rate effect on mechanical properties of chocolate
  Dr M Charalambides
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of temperature and strain rate effect on mechanical properties of chocolate, leading to the award of a PhD degree.
  Multiscale modeling of deformation twinning in Mg alloys - Ref: KB1UF2018
  Dr K Baxevanakis
Applications accepted all year round
The low density, specific strength, stiffness, castability, machinability, weldability and damping, as well as corrosion of magnesium (Mg) alloys, have resulted in a renaissance of Mg research.
