  Performance Evaluation and Failure Analysis of Preventive Corrosion/Erosion Coatings Used in Power Plant and Refinery
  Dr D Daniel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fossil fuels are currently the major energy source with approximately 80% of total energy consumption of the world. Renewable energy including traditional biomass contributes to about 14%.
  Modelling of primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC) of nickel based alloys (NBAs) in nuclear (PWR) primary coolant
  Prof M C Smith, Dr A Jivkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nickel based alloy (NBA) materials and their associated weld metals are of interest to new build and advanced nuclear reactors due to their superior structural performance when compared with traditional steel materials.
  Modelling Gas Turbine Blade Degradation in a High Fidelity Digital Twin
  Dr J Sumner, Dr N Simms
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sponsored by EPSRC and Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery, this studentship will provide a bursary of up to £18,000 (tax free) plus fees* for four years.
  Exploring the processes of nucleation and growth in the oxidation of zirconium alloy fuel rods
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr C Race
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pellets of uranium oxide fissile fuel in pressurised water reactors are contained within tubes of zirconium alloy - the fuel clad.

Institution. National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC). PhD Industrial Supervisor. Georgios Asfis. Application Deadline.
  NSIRC226 PhD Studentship – Development of laser-based decontamination techniques Coventry University
  Mr A Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Institution. National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC). PhD Supervisor. Prof. Jonathan Lawrence; Dr Andrew Wilson. Application deadline.
  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.
  Novel nanostructured materials for distinguishing molecules and ions with small size difference
  Dr Y Huang
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All across the world, people are facing a wealth of new and challenging problems, particularly the energy and environmental issues.
