  Magnesium alloy implants: corrosion effects on its mechanical performance
  Dr Y Liu
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resorbable metals, including magnesium- and iron-based metal alloy, were investigated intensively as biomaterials for production of orthopaedic implant and stents.
  Making the link between weld process and long term in-service performance: multi-scale modelling and characterisation for low alloy steel welds in advanced nuclear reactors
  Prof M C Smith, Dr J Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-value, low-volume, safety-critical metallic components in nuclear plants almost invariably contain welds. Welding is an aggressive process that causes microstructural changes in the weld and adjacent heat affected zone, develops residual stresses and structural distortion, and changes the material properties.
  Cellular Automaton to Model Rapid Crystal Growth and Recrystallisation
  Dr A Roy, Dr K Baxevanakis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Texture in materials plays a crucial role in metallic products. A thorough study of the underlying morphology and its evolution is relevant for producing cast parts of innovative technological products.
  Investigating hydride growth mechanisms in zirconium alloys
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr P Shanthraj, Prof M Preuss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Zirconium alloys are most commonly used as the fuel cladding material in nuclear reactors. Hydrogen uptake in these alloys occurs as a result of aqueous corrosion during service, and the absorbed hydrogen precipitate out of solution as hydrides once its solubility limit in the alloy is exceeded.
  Effects of Radiation Damage on ALM produced components
  Prof K Whittle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive Layer Manufactured (ALM) components are currently being developed for use in a range of industries, and variants of ALM have been investigated since the 1980s.
