  The investigation of the physical phenomena of porous electrospray propulsion devices for micro and nano satellites
  Research Group: Astronautics
  Dr C Ryan
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Charlie Ryan. Co-supervisor Professor John Shrimpton. Project description. Typical high performance electric propulsion options for large satellites, such as gridded ion thrusters or Hall Effect thrusters, do not work well for nano satellites.
  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].
