Use of Advanced Robotics to augment Railway Maintenance and Operations

Reference number. SCEBE-20-023-CHSF. Background. It is recognised that advanced robotics will have an increasingly important part to play in the competitive future of Railway Maintenance and operations, and this work builds on the previous successful published work at GCU. Read more

Study of stray current induced corrosion in railway construction

Railway electrification represents an important carbon strategy in the UK. It is estimated that an electric train consumes at least 20% less power (per passenger per mile) compared to a diesel-powered train. 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

EngD in Real time optical monitoring to understand railway rail wear and its dependence on steel metallurgy

  Research Group: Advanced Metallic Systems Centre for Doctoral Training
This project sits within the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Advanced Metallic Systems - a distinct research centre formed by a partnership between the Universities of Sheffield and Manchester and the I-Form Advanced Manufacturing Centre, Dublin. 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

NECESSARY (Net zEro CEments for Soil Stabilisation via wAste RecoverY)

This is an exciting opportunity to work on an industrial PhD research project at Ulster University with the UK’s leading specialist in ‘deep soil mixing’ (DSM) ground improvement, Deep Soil Mixing Ltd. Read more

Experimental Validation of Variable Acceleration Rayleigh-Taylor Instability

Turbulence remains the greatest unsolved problem in classical physics. One of the most fundamental examples of turbulence is that driven by the Rayleigh-Taylor instability at interfaces between fluids with differing density. Read more

Research opportunities in the Department of History

The Department of History at the University of York is one of the largest History graduate schools in the country. We offer world-class research opportunities to a vibrant international community of students. Read more

Design and Development of a Focusing Radar Antenna for Transport Infrastructure Subsurface Investigation

This project will develop and apply a novel focusing radar antenna to our pioneering rotational ground penetrating radar system which has been used to collect datasets of historic railway tunnel subsurface topography and is currently being used to investigate inland waterway locks.  . Read more

A Unified framework for early anomalies detection

Civilized nations compete to provide the safest possible settings for their populations. For the sake of citizen security, most modern metropolitan areas have installed extensive networks of surveillance cameras in public parks, streets, airports, and railway-stations. Read more
