  Modelling Gas Turbine Blade Degradation in a High Fidelity Digital Twin
  Dr J Sumner, Dr N Simms
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sponsored by EPSRC and Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery, this studentship will provide a bursary of up to £18,000 (tax free) plus fees* for four years.
  Modelling and Simulation of Closed Cycle Gas Turbine for Power Generation using Solar and/or Nuclear Heat Sources
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To meet the ever increasing energy demand worldwide, closed cycle gas turbine power plants have the potential to complement the conventional coal-fired power plants and the open cycle gas turbine power plants.
  An investigation into transonic flows over high pressure gas turbine blade tip
  Dr Z Saleh, Prof J Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Propulsion, in particular the gas turbine engines are a significantly important theme in the aerospace industry, any enhancement in the performance of these engines will have a great impact on the economics of the aviation sector [Stephens et al, 2007].
  Modelling Creep-Fatigue Damage and Life Prediction for Gas Turbine Rotors
  Prof W Sun
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current market conditions are such that combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants are now considering double two-shift operation, so potentially accruing upwards of 600 starts per year.
  Development of a gas turbine engine as a range extender
  Prof K Jiang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Birmingham has a worldwide reputation in developing microengines. We are currently looking for a student to a radical microturbine engine as a range extender for electric cars.
  Performance Assessment and Flexibility Study of Natural Gas-Fired Power Plants Integrated with Intensified Solvent Based Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural gas-fired (mainly combined cycle gas turbine) power plants are becoming increasingly popular due to its cleaner nature. Solvent based carbon capture is the most matured technology for commercial deployment in natural gas-fired power plants.
  Modelling of Dislocation-Microstructure Interaction at a Short Crack Tip - Ref: LG1UF2018
  Dr L Zhao
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nickel-based superalloys are particularly used in applications involving high temperatures and stresses, such as the critical gas-turbine blades and discs in aerospace and power-generation industries.
  Modelling and Simulation of Biomass Pyrolysis and Gasification & Syngas Cleaning using Plasma and Catalytic Technologies
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass is generally viewed as a CO2 neutral energy source. Biomass pyrolysis and gasification can produce syngas. To use this syngas for gas turbine power plants, the main technical barrier is the high tar composition in such syngas.
  Computational Studies on Tip Clearance Influence Regarding Flow and Heat Transfer Characteristics of Modern Aero Turbines (DTA)
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Prof A Turan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This study addresses the study of the flow and heat transfer at the tip clearance region in aero turbines. Fluid dynamics at this region tends to be extremely complex.
