  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Local detection of hydrogen in steels using neutron diffraction imaging (NSIRC 177)
  Dr K Govender
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Steels used in offshore flowlines, pipelines and risers are susceptible to corrosion fatigue in the presence of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and moisture present in oil and gas production fluids.
  Exploring the processes of nucleation and growth in the oxidation of zirconium alloy fuel rods
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr C Race
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pellets of uranium oxide fissile fuel in pressurised water reactors are contained within tubes of zirconium alloy - the fuel clad.
  PhD Studentship NSIRC 229 – Prediction of Step Wise Cracking due to Hydrogen attack in steel vessels using finite element stress analysis and acoustic emission.
  Dr S Soua
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is currently a lot of activity in the UK in selecting the materials from which key components in new designs of small fusion reactors will be fabricated.
  An artificially intelligent camera imaging algorithm for monitoring multiscale damage.
  Dr J Chen
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Technology, and will be supervised by Dr Jiye Chen.
  Mesoscopic modelling of Polymer Nano-composites
  Dr A Parnell, Dr B Chakrabarti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The statistical theory of transport in polymer networks and gels, which are examples of mesoscale porous structures holds many challenges, including connections between structures across length scales, their associated mechanics, and role of thermal fluctuations.
  Modelling the effect of the electric double layer on electron transfer kinetics
  Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electron transfer between molecules in solution and a surface (e.g., a metallic electrode or semiconducting substrate) occurs in a wide variety of important areas, including catalysis, corrosion, electrodeposition, photochemistry, etc.
  Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for subsea applications
  Dr T Thevar, Dr K Nakkeeran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is a widely used technique to obtain the elemental constituents of a sample. The process uses a short pulse of focused laser light to evaporate a minute volume of a target substance by highly localized heating to temperatures greater than 5000 K.
  Marine risers: experimental damage detection, monitoring and numerical modelling using digital twins
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr D Van der A, Prof E Pavlovskaia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine risers are critical components of any offshore oil and gas production operations linking subsea field developments with production and drilling equipment atop fixed or floating facilities.
  Behaviour of stainless steel reinforced concrete structures in fire
  Dr K Cashell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Premature deterioration and failure of concrete buildings and infrastructure due to corrosion of the reinforcement is a severe challenge facing the structural engineering community from a technical perspective and the wider public from a convenience and economic point of view.
  Functional nickel coatings obtained by electrodeposition and electroless deposition.
  Prof A Cobley
Application Deadline: 30 March 2020

Funding Type
