Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The exploitation of lightweight composite materials represent a vital element in the future efficiency and sustainability of the transportation sector.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Understanding and enhancing the mechanical performance of bioinspired dental composite
  Dr T Sui, Dr M Oldfield
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

Driven by the rising ageing population in the UK who suffer from oral disease and need dental treatment, there has been a growing demand for reliable dental restorative products (e.g.
  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the elementary building blocks of living organisms. The correct functioning of living organisms is therefore conditioned to the ability of living cells to withstand forces and deformations and to promptly adapt to their mechanical environment.
  Life enhancement of aerospace structures using laser surface modification
  Prof M Fitzpatrick
Application Deadline: 24 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate the application of laser shock peening to aerospace alloys, combining experimental and modelling approaches to optimise the application of the technique to trial components for current development programmes.
  PhD Studentship in the field of temperature and strain rate effect on mechanical properties of chocolate
  Dr M Charalambides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  CNT/cement nanocomposite materials for structural applications for buildings
  Prof M Limbachiya, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with remarkable mechanical and electrical properties have been used for enhancement of mechanical properties of polymer matrix materials but its capability for enhancement of cement based materials has not been widely explored yet.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  A novel technique for handling missing data for structural health monitoring of HIC / SOHIC
  Dr S Soua, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC) / Stress Oriented Hydrogen Induced Cracking (SOHIC) is the process of hydrogen forming metals becoming brittle as a result of the diffusion mechanisms of hydrogen into the microstructure of steel structures.
  Understanding bone mass using collageneases and aggrecanases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone is not only essential for locomotion, support and protection but crucial for many aspects of animal and human health. Specifically, bone is a calcium/phosphorous reservoir, is integral to glucose metabolism, houses the hematopoietic system and cross-talks with renal and reproductive systems.
  High-performance smart ceramic coatings on light alloys
  Dr B Mingo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The vision set out by the UK government is that by the year 2050 almost every car and van should be Ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV).
