  Modelling and Simulation of Closed Cycle Gas Turbine for Power Generation using Solar and/or Nuclear Heat Sources
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To meet the ever increasing energy demand worldwide, closed cycle gas turbine power plants have the potential to complement the conventional coal-fired power plants and the open cycle gas turbine power plants.
  An investigation into transonic flows over high pressure gas turbine blade tip
  Dr Z Saleh, Prof J Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Propulsion, in particular the gas turbine engines are a significantly important theme in the aerospace industry, any enhancement in the performance of these engines will have a great impact on the economics of the aviation sector [Stephens et al, 2007].
  Modelling Creep-Fatigue Damage and Life Prediction for Gas Turbine Rotors
  Prof W Sun
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current market conditions are such that combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants are now considering double two-shift operation, so potentially accruing upwards of 600 starts per year.
  Using Artificial Intelligence to study variations in gas turbine performance
  Research Group: Computational Engineering and Design
  Dr D Toal
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr. D.J.J. Toal. Co-supervisor Prof. A.J. Keane. Project description. Artificial Intelligence (AI) allows the rapid processing of images.
  Performance Assessment and Flexibility Study of Natural Gas-Fired Power Plants Integrated with Intensified Solvent Based Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural gas-fired (mainly combined cycle gas turbine) power plants are becoming increasingly popular due to its cleaner nature. Solvent based carbon capture is the most matured technology for commercial deployment in natural gas-fired power plants.
  Modelling of Dislocation-Microstructure Interaction at a Short Crack Tip - Ref: LG1UF2018
  Dr L Zhao
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nickel-based superalloys are particularly used in applications involving high temperatures and stresses, such as the critical gas-turbine blades and discs in aerospace and power-generation industries.
  Developing high Co-containing Ni-based Superalloys with improved oxidation behaviour for future jet-engine applications
  Research Group: Advanced Metallic Systems Centre for Doctoral Training
  Dr K Christofidou, Dr M Jackson
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ni-based superalloys are the alloys of choice for high performance, critical components used at the high temperature sections of gas turbines.
  Computer vision and robot control for performing on-wing repair of aero-engines
  Prof D Axinte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in manufacturing and On-Wing Technology, The University of Nottingham. Applicants are invited to undertake a 3 year PhD programme in partnership with industry to address key challenges in on-platform manufacturing engineering.
  Rolls-Royce sponsored PhD Scholarship – Design and Simulation of Stiffness-Adjustable Robotic Systems for Performing on-Wing Repair of Aero-Engines
  Prof D Axinte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applicants are invited to undertake a 3 year PhD programme in partnership with industry to address key challenges in on-platform manufacturing engineering.
  Modelling and Simulation of Biomass Pyrolysis and Gasification & Syngas Cleaning using Plasma and Catalytic Technologies
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass is generally viewed as a CO2 neutral energy source. Biomass pyrolysis and gasification can produce syngas. To use this syngas for gas turbine power plants, the main technical barrier is the high tar composition in such syngas.
