Fracture assessment of large-scale structural components through the selection of matching small-scale laboratory specimens

You will join the internationally recognised researchers in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. This fracture mechanics-oriented research project will be focused on the crack-tip constraint effect. Read more

PhD in Computational Fracture Mechanics: Methods, Programming and Simulation

The aim of this PhD programme is to develop efficient numerical strategies for the prediction and assessment of fracture. Our group has got success in the development of new numerical strategies, e.g. 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

Fracture by design of confined architected materials

This research project aims to address pressing fundamental challenges in structural bonding and thereby propose innovative solutions to foster sustainable practices in construction and infrastructure, renewable energy sector, and automotive industry, etc. Read more

Computational modelling of cement-implant and cement-bone fracture in Unicondylar Knee Replacements (UKR)

Loosening is one of the major causes of implant failures, resulting in a lower success rate of joint replacement surgery. However, research conducted on the fracture of the polymer bone cement which holds the implant in place has not been extensive. Read more

Analysis of delamination in cross-ply laminates: energy release rates and cohesive zone modelling

Identification of delamination is at the forefront of damage and fracture mechanics of composite laminates. In this project, predictive modelling and simulation will be carried out to assess delamination in cross-ply carbon fiber epoxy laminates. 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

Investigation of the mechanical behaviour of newly formed bone

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3-year full-time or 6-year part time PhD project. The PhD will be based in the School of Mechanical and Design Engineering and will be supervised by. Read more
