  Making the link between weld process and long term in-service performance: multi-scale modelling and characterisation for low alloy steel welds in advanced nuclear reactors
  Prof M C Smith, Dr J Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-value, low-volume, safety-critical metallic components in nuclear plants almost invariably contain welds. Welding is an aggressive process that causes microstructural changes in the weld and adjacent heat affected zone, develops residual stresses and structural distortion, and changes the material properties.
  Modelling of primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC) of nickel based alloys (NBAs) in nuclear (PWR) primary coolant
  Prof M C Smith, Dr A Jivkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nickel based alloy (NBA) materials and their associated weld metals are of interest to new build and advanced nuclear reactors due to their superior structural performance when compared with traditional steel materials.
  EPSRC CDT in Nuclear Energy - GREEN (Growing skills for Reliable Economic Energy from Nuclear)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The GREEN CDT is a consortium of the five universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield, which aims to train the next generation of expert nuclear scientists and engineers.
  Advanced electron beam sources
  Dr F Iza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electron beam technology is a unique technology that enables joining dissimilar and otherwise hard to weld metals with very precise and clean welds while minimizing the heating of the material outside the working area.
  Development of inspection techniques for non-sharp defects (NSIRC 172a)
  Dr C Nageswaran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background/Description. The science of fracture mechanics, and hence the engineering assessments based on fracture mechanics, assume a sharp crack is present.
  PhD Studentship: Crack behaviour in a residual stress field at fillet welds in ship structures
  Mr G Wu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Welding residual stresses are complex in fillet welds used to join longitudinal stiffened plate at the bottom of ship structures that are exposed to complex cyclic loads.

The GREEN CDT is a consortium of the five universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield, which aims to train the next generation of expert nuclear scientists and engineers.
  Artificial Intelligence Methods - Automated Defect Recognition of Ultrasonic Data in NDT
  Prof P Wilcox, Prof B Drinkwater
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence (AI) in non-destructive evaluation (NDE) techniques leading to the award of an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) degree.
