Reactive inkjet and textiles

The global market for printed textiles is in the region of $200 billion with inkjet printing playing a significant role. The PhD will investigate the various reactive inkjet mechanisms used in printed textiles, identifying research opportunities and investigating issues involved in expanding the role inkjet can play.

Reactive inkjet printing

Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) have recently been printed using reactive inkjet printing. This PhD builds on that work aiming to expand the range of MOFs that can be printed and uncovering the advantages of using reactive inkjet printing as the production means. Read more

Reactive inkjet printing - silk porous structures for catalysis?

Silk stirrers and silk ‘rockets’ have been produced using reactive inkjet printing. The purpose of this PhD topic is to investigate the degree of porosity that the silk structures contain. Read more

Improving the mechanical properties of carbon fibre composites via inkjet printed polymer inclusions

Carbon fibre composites have been toughened, and strengthened, by using inkjet printing to deposit discrete droplets of polymer onto the pre-preg that is used to produce the final composite material. Read more

Predicting the inkjet printing performance of particle-containing inks

There has been a lot of research performed into predicting of the jetting performance of inks for inkjet printing. However, to date, the ‘inks’ used have been simple solvents. Read more

Lubrication in Wind Turbines

We have a vacancy for an enthusiastic and self-motivated PhD student for a PhD project in the Centre for Doctoral Training, CDT in Tribology and the Leonardo Centre for Tribology at the University of Sheffield funded by GE Renewable Energy. Read more

Fully Funded PhD Studentship in EPSRC Centre for Doctor Training (CDT) - Resilient decarbonised Fuel Energy Systems.

Utilisation of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) as blend with petroleum-derived aviation fuels or standalone replacements offers an advantageous step towards decarbonised aviation, for foreseeable future, in response to the net-zero emission target by 2050. Read more

Creating Negative Emissions Through Direct Air Capture and Carbon Mineralisation

Large scale Green House Gas (GHG) removal is vital to limit global mean temperatures from rising more than 2ºC. Most climate mitigation technologies focus on decreasing the rate at which we add carbon to the atmosphere as carbon dioxide (CO. Read more

Whatever the weather - effect of environmental conditions on Additive Manufactured (3D Printed) polymer parts

Despite gaining increasing attention throughout a range of industrial sectors, powdered-polymer Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes such as Laser Sintering are being held back by a lack of information about the behaviour of parts in real-life conditions. Read more

Mechanics of deformation and induced surface integrity in micro-cutting

Micro-cutting is increasingly used to modify the surface properties of functional surfaces as well as in the generation of mechanical systems for Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS). Read more

Turbulent drag reduction by passive techniques

This study will investigate passive methods to achieve a reduction of friction produced by wall-bounded turbulent flows. The approach will be an effective blend of numerical and mathematical techniques. Read more
