  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).
  Nonlinear 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.
  Actin regulation of nuclear mechanics during DNA repair
  Dr C Toseland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In eukaryotic cells, the nucleus houses the genomic material and transcription machinery that allows the cell to develop and perform its role.
  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 April 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 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.
  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.
  Development of inspection techniques for non-sharp defects (NSIRC 172a)
  Dr C Nageswaran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background/Description. The science of fracture mechanics, and hence the engineering assessments based on fracture mechanics, assume a sharp crack is present.
  Penguin propulsion mechanics in underwater swimming
  Dr B Parslew, Dr K Smith, Prof W Sellers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Penguins are highly adapted for both efficient cruising and rapid manoeuvring during underwater locomotion. From a biomechanical perspective some progress has been made into understanding the fluid dynamics surrounding their morphology, including the potential role of bubbles in reducing drag.
  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.
