  Advanced design of fibre reinforced composites - using multiscale reliability analysis and optimisation
  Dr P Dunning, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to advance the design of components made from fibre reinforced composite materials, by combining techniques in multiscale analysis, structural reliability and design optimisation.
  Integrated Aero/Hydro/Structural Analysis and Multi-objective Optimisation of Floating Wind Turbines
  Dr A Maheri, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Floating wind energy is potentially a highly scalable future energy source. Almost 80% of the Europe wind resources are in waters with +60 m depth, where floating offshore wind turbines are deemed to be the natural solutions.
  Longevity and fate of structures left in place
  Dr S Sriramula, Dr Amir Siddiq, Dr A Akisanya
Application Deadline: 4 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED 3.5-YEAR PHD IN ENGINEERING.
  Modelling of joining technologies for novel metal matrix composites for offshore applications
  Prof I Guz, Prof M Kashtalyan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal matrix composites (MMCs) present remarkable properties by combining the properties of the metal matrix and of ceramic reinforcement.
  Multi-objective Optimisation of Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems
  Dr A Maheri, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In planning and sizing of hybrid energy systems the conflicting objectives cost and performance are to be optimised simultaneously via a multi-objective optimisation process [1-2].
  Nonlinear topology optimisation of stiffened shell structures
  Dr P Dunning, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop topology optimisation methods for the design of stiffened shell structures, considering nonlinear affects.
  Optimising Mechanical Performance of Additively Manufactured (3D Printed) Titanium Alloys
  Dr M Kartal, Dr Amir Siddiq
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is a common term used to describe the technology in which three-dimensional (3D) objects are fabricated by successive layers of material.
  Predicting mechanical properties of nanocomposites with brush-like reinforcement
  Prof I Guz, Prof M Kashtalyan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will focus on creating the multi-scale three-dimensional models for accurate analytical prediction of the effect of reinforcement with bristled nanowires on the overall performance of the composite material, leading to the optimal usage of very expensive nanomaterials.
  Reliability of pipelines under spatially varying corrosion defects
  Dr S Sriramula, Dr H Tan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The integrity of pipelines is greatly affected by the initiation and progression of corrosion defects. It has been widely recognised that random variations in these characteristics can be rationally quantified with probabilistic approaches.
  Stochastic response characterisation and reliability driven optimisation of floating wind turbines
  Dr S Sriramula, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the wind turbine installations move to deep-water environments, there is an increasing focus on the design considerations for floating wind turbines (FWTs).
  Advanced Study in Machine Learning and Automatic Control. Methods and Application to Immunotherapy.
  Prof M Peet
Application Deadline: 1 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD position is available in the Cybernetic Systems and Controls Lab (CSCL) in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Arizona State University.
  A study of large amplitude vibration in HAWT blades
  Dr A Soleiman-Fallah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-prismatic composite beams of standard airfoil cross sections are used in Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine blades to produce green energy.
  Ballistic impact response of multi-layered shields
  Dr A Soleiman-Fallah, Dr B Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In an optimal design, more often than not, an initial configuration of a structure must be modified several times to provide the optimal arrangement.
  Developing the Dielectric Barrier Discharge Surface Plasma Actuators to Improve the Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics Performances of Aerofoil
  Dr TP Chong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the aerospace industry, great emphasis is always placed on the lifting components to achieve high-lift, low-drag and low-noise performances.
  Dynamic response of impact-loaded crushable auxetic metamaterials
  Dr A Soleiman-Fallah, Dr B Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Auxetic metamaterials possess an artificially designed microstructure allowing them to offer some unique features not readily observed in natural materials.
