  Tapered microstructure fibre and its application for bio-chemical sensing (SF19/EE/MPEE/WU)
  Dr Q Wu, Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently there is an increasing demand for human health monitoring due to the development of the society. This requires to monitor a larger number of analytes, and hence it is crucial to develop an efficient and cost effective detection method.
  Microstructure and defect formation in metal additive manufacturing
  Research Group: Imaging and Characterisation
  Dr W Mirihanage
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive manufacturing (AM) is a futuristic technology for rapid production of net-shaped or near-net-shaped components without the design constraints of traditional manufacturing routes.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 September 2020

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.
  Characterising the microstructure of composite explosives by mining X-ray CT scan datasets PhD
  Dr C Stennett, Dr R Vrcelj
Application Deadline: 12 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cook-off response of explosives of the same type varies quite markedly, even though current characterisation techniques (such as X-ray CT scanning) seem to show them to have the same properties.
  Microstructure control in metal additive manufacturing
  Research Group: Imaging and Characterisation
  Dr W Mirihanage
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal additive manufacturing (AM) is rapidly emerged as a viable alternative to subtractive manufacturing. Among various AM techniques.
  Controlling Microstructure of Metal and Polymer Aerogels via Advanced Templating Approaches
  Dr R Menzel
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aerogels are highly-porous, nanostructured materials with great potential in advanced technologies including energy generation, (electro)catalysis, and sensing.
  Mapping the radiation tolerance and local mechanics of nuclear Reactor Pressure Vessel steels
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr E Jimenez-Melero, Prof G Burke
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to evaluate the impact of the local microstructure on the radiation damage and mechanical performance of neutron-irradiated Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPV) steels at relevant reactor conditions and in the bulk microstructure, with sufficient spatial resolution and chemical sensitivity to identify local changes in chemistry, phases, microstructure and plasticity/hardening.
  Improving design against fatigue
  Dr H Basoalto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fatigue life prediction in the aerospace components relies on fracture mechanics for relatively long cracks (>1mm). Nevertheless, most of the fatigue life is spent while the crack is relatively short (.
