  Numerical modelling of cracked engineering materials under dynamic loading
  Dr O Menshykov, Prof I Guz, Dr M Menshykova
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Ice streams: present-to-palaeo - QUADRAT
  Prof B Rea, Dr A Newton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Ice streams are the arteries which drain large quantities of ice from the interior of ice sheets to the ice margin. From both palaeo and present they are known to display dynamical behaviour in relation to ice flow velocity.
  Industry funded PhD studentship on fracture behaviour in high performance tyres
  Dr J Busfield
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The ideal candidate would have an interest in understanding the design and behaviour of materials used to manufacture high performance tyres operating in harsh environments.
  Fracture Behaviour of the Cross Laminated Timber
  Prof E Patterson, Prof W-C Wang
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
This four-year PhD project is focused on the investigation of the fracture behaviour associated with grain orientation and its effect on crack propagation of the cross laminated timber (CLT).
  New DIC-Based Material Test Standards: Design and Validation
  Research Group: Materials and Surface Engineering
  Prof F Pierron
Application Deadline: 1 March 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.
  Coupled thermo-fluid-mechanics of thermally stressed granite for Hot Dry Rock geothermal reservoir applications
  Prof A Goetz, Dr P Benson, Prof I Sass
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Professor Annette Goetz, Dr Philip Benson and Professor Ingo Sass (TU Darmstadt).
  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.
