Digital twins of power converters connected to Network Rail’s AC traction power supply

This PhD project will be undertaken in association with Network Rail. The number of power converters connected to the rail traction power network is expected to increase significantly over the next few years to integrated renewable power sources, storage devices, and electric vehicle charging stations.

Modelling strategies for rail network predictability, human performance and chaotic behaviour appraisal

This project is part of the . Centre for Doctoral Training in Geospatial Systems. . The successful candidate will be co-supervised by academics from within the School of Engineering at Newcastle University and work alongside our external partner . Read more

Environmental fatigue life investigation of Automated Fibre Placement Process (AFPP) for Composite Mast PhD

This PhD studentship is funded by Network Rail, the owner and infrastructure manager of most of the railway network in Great Britain, and Furrer+Frey, presently an international leading and innovative, mid-size supplier of overhead contact lines. Read more

Multi-sensing deterioration monitoring of railway bridges

Rail infrastructure deteriorates with time due to material fatigue, overloading, ground movement and environmental effects. This might affect the serviceability and structural integrity of rail assets, such as bridges, causing major socio-economic disruptions and occasionally life loss. Read more

Sprayed self-healing cement composites for repair

OVERVIEW. The School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering has seen 100% of its research impact rated as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, underlining the wide-ranging positive impacts that our research has on the world (REF, 2021). Read more

Advanced Fatigue Analysis of Metallic Railway Bridges

In the UK and several other countries, large parts of the railway infrastructure were built in the late 19th/early 20th century. Metallic railway bridges are key elements in these networks and need to stay safe and functional for as long as possible. Read more

Engineering Doctorate (EngD): New exhaust gas clean up systems for the combustion of new, low carbon fuels in heavy duty engines

As a company, Eminox’s global strategy is to develop exhaust after-treatment systems (EATS) for on-road, non-road mobile machinery (NRMM), rail, marine and power generation internal combustion engines (ICE) that will eventually adopt Carbon-Free Alternative Fuels such as NH. Read more

Self-powered health monitoring of railway infrastructure Industrially sponsored by NetworkRail

The ambition of the project is to produce a self-charging sensor that monitor the structural health of a railway points and report changes to the health of the points in real time. Read more
