tribology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 16 tribology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

PhD Studentship in Molecular Simulations of Food Biotribology

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of Molecular Simulations of Food Biotribology, leading to the award of a PhD degree.  The post is supported by a bursary and fees (at the UK student rate) provided by the Mechanical Engineering Department, and it is open to ‘home’ students.

Elastic wave propagation

We have built our world out of steel, concrete, and other stiff solids. How well these structures endure depends on the tension and strains they are under, which are closely related to the material’s elastic behaviour. Read more

An investigation on the tribochemical surface interactions of molten salt reactors

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
Materials challenges have always been critical for delivering low-carbon energy towards the UK’s goal to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Read more

CFD modelling of seals for high-pressure, low-carbon storage technologies

Are you passionate about pushing the boundaries of engineering and accelerating decarbonization and the transition to a carbon neutral energy system through groundbreaking research? Join the Department of Mechanical Engineering’s Thermofluids Group at the University of Sheffield for a PhD focused on the computational modelling of mechanical seals funded by John Crane Ltd.

Durability of Seals for High Pressure H2 Storage

We have a vacancy for an enthusiastic and self-motivated PhD student for a PhD project in the Leonardo Centre at the University of Sheffield funded by the John Crane Ltd. Read more

PhD studentships in Engineering

We offer PhDs in Engineering (MPhil/PhD) across seven research themes. Communication & Information Engineering; Computational Engineering; Data-Centric Engineering; Design & Mechatronics; Energy & Power Systems; Manufacturing, Materials & Systems; and Signals & Control. Read more

Predictive molecular models of high-performance elastomers in demanding environments

High-performance elastomers enable some of the most sophisticated modern technology. They are designed to operate in the often-punishing environments such as those encountered in aerospace industries. Read more

Water lubricated compressor bearings

Supervisory Team:  Robert Wood, Julian Wharton and Ahmed Kovacevic (City, Uni of London). Project description. Compressors consume energy, but their use in mechanical vapour recompression (MVR) and heat pumps will continue to play an important role that contributes towards Carbon Neutrality in society.
