  Environmental fracture mechanics testing of dissimilar metal welds - NSIRC242 PhD Studentship
  Ms H Stedman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Dissimilar metal welds (DMWs) are used across the energy sector from traditional fossil fuel industries, through to renewables, the emerging hydrogen economy, nuclear fission and even nuclear fusion.
  Finite Elements Techniques in 3D Dynamic Fracture Mechanics
  Dr M Menshykova, Dr O Menshykov, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

New high-tech materials allow a significant increase in strength, stiffness and safety level in structures. However, failure can still occur for many other reasons, including uncertainties in the loading or environmental conditions and deficiencies in construction.
  Quantum Mechanics in Phase Space
  Dr M Everitt, Dr J Samson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference. PH/ME-Un2/2019. School. School of Science. Location. Loughborough. UK/EU Fee band. Research Band 1 Classroom Based (£4,327).
  Mechanics of soft solids undergoing large deformation
  Dr P Saxena
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Solid materials that can undergo large deformations are ubiquitous in nature and are widely used to manufacture engineering components.
  Mechanics of Advanced Materials: the response of advanced engineering and bio-materials to various types of external loading and environmental conditions - Ref: VS2UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the last two decades, Mechanics of Materials as a discipline has experienced a type of revival. The main reason for this has been a continuing introduction of new materials (or even their classes) with extraordinary microstructures, properties and performance.
  Mathematical modelling of poro-mechanics of soil
  Research Group: Bioengineering
  Prof T. Roose
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Tiina Roose. Co-supervisor William Powrie. Project description. Soil is one of the most complex and important self-assembling organo-mineral composites in the world.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 September 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.
  Non-Markovian statistical mechanics: theory and applications
  Research Group: Dynamical Systems and Statistical Physics
  Dr RJ Harris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London invite applications for a PhD project commencing in September 2020 for self-funded students.
  Experimental and numerical characterisation and modelling of viscoelastic/viscoplastic crack growth in adhesive joints
  Dr G Alfano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesive bonding is a widely used technique in the aerospace and automotive industry, whose advantages with respect to more conventional connections of structural components include the great reduction of stress concentration and weight.
  The effects of vegetation on wave hydrodynamics in coastal environments
  Prof T O'Donoghue, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabeds covered with vegetation such as seagrass protect against coastal erosion due to their ability to attenuate wave energy and demobilise suspended sediments.
  MSc by Research Programme: Regulation and mechanics in polarity
  Dr D H Murray
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  PhD vacancy (4 years) on computational mechanics of large wind turbine blades
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last years, UGent-MMS has developed the stand-alone BladeMesher software for generating finite element models of large wind turbine blades.
  Fluid mechanics of polymer melt filtration
  Dr M Wilson
Application Deadline: 2 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics is now recruiting to this fantastic PhD opportunity in partnership with Dupont Teijin Films.
  Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows
  Research Group: Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics
  Dr C Vanderwel
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Christina Vanderwel. Project description. There are two openings for PhD students to work on “Simulating urban air pollution in the lab”.
  Secondary currents in rough-bed open-channel flows and their interrelations with the primary mean flow and turbulence
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although the great significance of secondary flows for river processes has long been recognised, their origin, mechanics, effects, and interrelations with the primary mean flow and turbulence are still under debate and continue attracting close attention of hydrologists, geomorphologists, engineers, and, recently, stream ecologists.
