railway PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 19 railway PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Analysis and Mitigation of Railway Noise, Vibration and Wheel/Rail Roughness

Supervisory Team: Dr Wenjing Sun, Professor David Thompson. PhD Supervisor: Wenjing Sun. Project description. An exciting PhD opportunity is available at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton focusing on the noise and vibration of railways. Read more

Bridging the Gap Between Theory and Practice: Investigating the Barriers to Achieving Projected Energy Savings in Railway Systems

A plethora of energy saving devices and technology have been proposed for railway systems to help save energy. These systems employ technology to either to use an alternative fuel, or to harness existing energy, or to store excess energy in batteries, or to use another chemical gradient. Read more

Investigation of Railway Studs and Squats

The research seeks to develop a generalised validated mathematical model for rail studs, and in particular to examine how this mechanism differs from that for rail squats. Read more

Noise Control of Railway Slab Track

Supervisory Team: Professor David Thompson, Dr Wenjing Sun . Project Description. An exciting PhD opportunity is available at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton in conjunction with Alstom on the control of noise from railway slab track. Read more

Digital twin railway network

Research at Sheffield has been developing models of the railway network from a range of perspectives including smart-grid energy consumption, passenger satisfaction, and integration of rail with wider city and regional transport networks. Read more

Transition to high performance railway overhead power lines

Recently undertaken research at Sheffield has identified opportunities to reduce the cost and improve the reliability of rail electrification systems through improvements to materials and design of the pantograph to overhead line contact. Read more

Fully-Funded Research Study @ The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Guangzhou) | Unified HKUST, Complementary Campuses

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Guangzhou), which was established in June 2022, is a cooperatively-run higher education institution between the Chinese mainland and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Read more

PhDs in Mechanical Engineering in resilient railways, sponsored by Network Rail

The research addresses the broad areas of infrastructure resilience and design in the face of climate change and the implications for disruption management. Read more

Separation and characterisation of wear flakes generated in rail-wheel interactions.

This project provides a new research activity within rail research at The University of Sheffield, and the resulting techniques will provide a method which can be utilised to drive forward other projects within the group, relating to wear mechanisms and material development. Read more

Biocoal research for use in heritage steam railways

The UK has over 200 heritage railway lines in operation. Traditionally these have run on coal, preferably Welsh steam coal, a form of bituminous coal known for its good calorific values, low sulphur content and semi smokeless properties. Read more
