University of Sheffield, Department of Mechanical Engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 107 University of Sheffield, Department of Mechanical Engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Separation and characterisation of wear flakes generated in rail-wheel interactions.

This project provides a new research activity within rail research at The University of Sheffield, and the resulting techniques will provide a method which can be utilised to drive forward other projects within the group, relating to wear mechanisms and material development. Read more

Interaction between medical materials and skin

This project will build on previous research within the department to characterise and understand the interaction between medical materials and skin such as gloves, incontinence pads, masks and dressings. Read more

Integrating machine-learning techniques in structural digital twins

Digital twins are an emerging tool for the modelling and managing of structures. They are considered models which evolve in time together with the structure and it is desired that they integrate different types of data in the modelling procedure. Read more

Effect of obesity on bone strength and implication on the risk of hip fracture

There is a clear and unmet need to address the diagnosis of hip fracture risk associated with osteoporosis. Whereas low weight is a well-documented risk factor for future bone fractures, a high body weight seems to protect against hip fracture. Read more

Enabling Net Zero Emissions Targets through Post Combustion Capture (PCC) of CO2 Using Amine-based Emerging Technology

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is one of the key activities that will allow anthropogenic carbon emissions to reach net zero and net negative in time to avoid dangerous climate change. Most large-scale CCS operations rely on amine solvents for post-combustion CO. Read more

Developing an algorithm for detecting placenta abnormalities

The placenta plays an important role during pregnancy by transporting nutrients to the fetus. Occasionally the placenta does not function properly, giving rise to a range of issues such as placenta accrete and intrauterine growth restrictions (IUGR). Read more

Investigating plastic behaviour in immature bones

There are many differences in mechanical properties between immature and adult bones. While adult bones have been studied extensively, particularly in relation to non-healthy ageing and the risk of fracture, there has been a lack of study on immature or young bones and their mechanical properties.
