The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future (Sensor CDT), at the University of Cambridge, is looking for aspirational, enthusiastic and open-minded students to join its vibrant environment.
Background. Driven by European Regulations (No. 443/2009) and the USA Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standard, automotive and aerospace companies are increasingly looking to use carbon fibre composites to achieve up to 50% weight savings over metallic alternatives.
Background. Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC) / Stress Oriented Hydrogen Induced Cracking (SOHIC) is the process of hydrogen forming metals becoming brittle as a result of the diffusion mechanisms of hydrogen into the microstructure of steel structures.
Course Description. 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.
Background. To ensure safety of any engineering system so that human life is protected and the environment is safe it is logical to be able to define when it is operating outside of its design condition.
