  Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for subsea applications
  Dr T Thevar, Dr K Nakkeeran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is a widely used technique to obtain the elemental constituents of a sample. The process uses a short pulse of focused laser light to evaporate a minute volume of a target substance by highly localized heating to temperatures greater than 5000 K.
  A new metering and data fusion method for wet gas flow
  Dr JJ Jia
Application Deadline: 15 December 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wet gas is any gas with a small amount of liquid present. Wet gas flow metering is becoming increasingly important in many industrial sectors, like oil and gas.
  Prediction for stray alternating current (AC) induced corrosion in oil/gas pipes in close proximity to high-voltage transmission lines and railways
  Dr K Tang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In comparison to stray direct current (DC) induced corrosion which is a long-recognized engineering challenge, stray alternating current (AC) induced corrosion was more recently reported.

  Biomechanical modelling of the human hand for improved control of myoelectric prostheses
  Dr E Chadwick, Dr M Giannaccini
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The loss of a hand or greater part of the upper limb can mean a devastating loss of function for an individual. Myoelectric prostheses are robotic hands intended for replacement of the natural hand in cases of hand amputation or limb difference.
  Control of drill-string vibrations
  Dr S S Aphale, Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Drill-strings possess a rich nonlinear dynamic behaviour. Torsional vibrations are a main cause of concern and current area of research interest in the wider academic as well as industrial research community.
  Durability analysis in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles
  Dr M Aleyaasin, Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project , the heavy duty hybrid electric vehicles is considered for the investigation. The propulsion in these trucks is based on parallel operation of a bank of lithium batteries and series of hydrogen fuel cells.
  Enhancing the performance, condition, safety and reliability of offshore wind energy infrastructure systems using optimal design, inspections, structural health monitoring and structural control
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr P Dunning, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wind turbines are exposed to frequent structural damage increasing the cost of wind energy generation. To drive these costs down, this project will develop new automated methods for detection of structural damage to wind turbines by examining vibration responses measured by sensors attached to the structure.
  Fractional-order control for precision mechatronic systems
  Dr S S Aphale, Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Integer-order control schemes aimed at high-precision positioning performance of mechatronic systems have been extensively researched thus far.
  Interconnecting two HVDC links using non-isolated DC/DC Converter
  Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR, Prof D Jovcic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) technology has been recognized as a solution for long-distance bulk-power transmission, asynchronous AC systems interconnections, interconnection of different regions requiring submarine and underground cables, and transmission of offshore wind power to shore.
  Internet Transport Methods for 5G mobile networks
  Dr R Secchi, Prof G Fairhurst
Applications accepted all year round
