  Non Parametric Optimisation for Engineering Applications
  Dr A Riccardi, Dr E Minisci
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK) is looking for a motivated student to be enrolled in their PhD program.
  PhD Engineering - Computational modelling of fretting-induced wear
  Prof C J Pearce, Dr L Kaczmarczyk
Application Deadline: 14 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wear is a complex problem that occurs in many industrial applications, notably under fretting loading conditions. Fretting-induced wear is surface damage that occurs between two contacting surfaces experiencing oscillatory motion.
  Centre for Doctoral Training in Socially Progressive Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  Dr A Riccardi, Dr E Minisci
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will focus on studying research questions in social entrepreneurship and social innovation aimed at addressing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) through market-based mechanisms and theory linked interventions.
  Closed-Loop Robotic Non-Destructive Evaluation
  Dr G Dobie, Dr C Macleod
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of development of advanced non-destructive evaluation (NDE) techniques leading to the award of an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) degree.
  Fully superconducting machines for electric aircraft propulsion
  Dr M Zhang, Prof W Yuan
Application Deadline: 30 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to achieve a low carbon future, the aviation technology has to be dramatically changed. Hybrid electric aircraft offers a transforming solution to reduce carbon emissions and improve efficiency.
  Investigation of high temperature superconducting joint
  Prof W Yuan, Dr M Zhang
Application Deadline: 2 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Superconducting joint is a critical component for high temperature superconducting magnet systems. Achieving a reliable and low-resistant joint will enable revolution of high temperature superconducting magnet applications.
  Wind Turbine Operation and Maintenance in Extreme Conditions – How will Springing and Ringing Loads Have an Influence on O&M?
  Dr X Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. The mix of energy supply worldwide has changed dramatically in the last few decades. In the UK, in order to tackle climate change and increasing energy consumption, there has been a clear movement from fossil towards renewable and sustainable energy sources.
  PhD in Engineering: Rotary Heater Element Performance – Simulation and Optimisation for Environmental and Economic Impact
  Dr M Vezza
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start date. October 2019 (negotiable).
  Direct Numerical Simulation of Ferrofluid flows
  Dr D Kivotides, Dr P Grassia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ferrofluids (magnetic or superparamagnetic fluids) are a special case of colloidal fluids, where single-domain, nanosize ferromagnetic partices are dispersed in a simple liquid.
  Direct numerical simulation of polymeric-fluid flows
  Dr D Kivotides, Dr P Grassia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymers and turbulence are two of the most difficult problems in statistical physics. In the past, the study of polymeric liquids was divided in two categories.
  Investigating the relationship between human responses and major safety incidents in the process industries
  Dr E Ventura-Medina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Typically safety events, including major safety incidents, can have far reach consequences in terms of losses for businesses and society as a whole.
  Sustainable paper making using foam
  Dr P Grassia, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the advent of 21st century electronic communications, paper remains one of the most widely utilised materials in the world.
  Analysis and Prediction of Jet Noise in Non-axisymmetric Air Jets: Asymptotic Theory & Large-eddy Simulations within Goldstein’s Acoustic Analogy
  Dr M Afsar, Prof M Cartmell
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to study the effect of mean flow spreading on the low frequency amplification of jet noise in non axisymmetric high Reynolds number jet flows.
  Mesoscopic Modelling of Abrasion/Attrition in Particulate Solids
  Dr S Haeri, Dr Y Zhang
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the undesirable transformations of a particle in processing and handling of bulk solids is attrition, i.e. wear and erosion of surface asperities and chipping.
  Mathematical Modelling and Analysis of Sessile Droplets
  Prof S K Wilson, Dr A Wray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The behaviour of sessile droplets is an area of very active international research, with new publications appearing on an almost daily basis and entire conferences now dedicated to the topic.
