  Induced fracture and fluid flow in tight oil reservoirs: viscosity and temperature effects
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Swift, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Invent a novel AI-based method for osteoporotic fracture risk assessment by Localized Bone Mineral Density and Radiomics Biomarker analysis, and further improve the accuracy and sensitivity of the system.
  Prof W Lu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The number of osteoporotic fracture cases is ever increasing, and it ranks among the top-five conditions causing disability and prolonged hospital stay.
  Adapting and testing the feasibility of an enhanced community-based rehabilitation programme following hip fracture for people with dementia or cognitive impairment
  Prof N Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Proximal femoral fracture (commonly referred to as hip fracture) is a major health problem in the frail elderly [1], and 42% have cognitive impairment [2].
  Apply biomechanical finite-element analysis and computer simulation techniques into the diagnostic software for further improving the validity of the system.
  Prof W Lu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The number of osteoporotic fracture cases is ever increasing, and it ranks among the top-five conditions causing disability and prolonged hospital stay.
  Experimental and numerical characterisation and modelling of viscoelastic/viscoplastic crack growth in adhesive joints
  Dr G Alfano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesive bonding is a widely used technique in the aerospace and automotive industry, whose advantages with respect to more conventional connections of structural components include the great reduction of stress concentration and weight.
  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 (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) – Crack Tip Constraint in Typical High Strength Steel Components in Arctic Conditions (NSIRC 183)
  Dr R Kulka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background.
  Bone-metal (brittle-elastic) bond durability and fatigue derived from coupled Acoustic Emission and X-ray Computed Tomography
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Tozzi, Prof G Blunn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  PhD Studentship in the influence of inelastic damage on the crack growth behaviour of 316H stainless steels
  Dr C Davies
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of fracture mechanics leading to the award of a PhD degree. Please check your suitability at the following web site.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Joint elastic-electrical properties of clay-rich sediments with fluid-filled fractures
  Dr A Best, Dr S Sahoo, Dr L North, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Accurate characterization of shallow sub-seafloor geological reservoirs and overburden sediments is essential for geological CO2 storage, gas hydrate exploitation and monitoring of fluids and host sediment properties during gas production and CO2 storage activities.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Making Broken Bones Antimicrobial - Preventing Osteomyelitis Using a Targeted and Mineralising Liposomal Delivery System
  Dr WN Nishio Ayre, Prof J Birchall
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September/October 2019.
  Effect of Induced Plasticity on the Very High Cycle Fatigue of aluminium alloy under biaxial stress field
  Dr M Grasso, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most important task in the design process is the assessment of cyclic loading since half of the mechanical failures are due to fatigue.
  An integrated approach for damage identification in composite materials
  Dr K Baxevanakis
Application Deadline: 24 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-destructive inspection based on acoustics is today one the primary methods for the identification of damage precursors in components and structures.
  Formulation of a novel suspending medium for immobilised culture and tissue processing
  Dr L Grover
Application Deadline: 11 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone damage following blast or ballistic wounding results in the mechanic destruction and death of tissue at the site of injury. Surgeons debride away the tissue, removing any necrotic regions and this generally enables complete regeneration of the defect.
