  Advanced CFD methods for porous media flows (JS2UF2019)
  Dr J Szmelter, Dr A Clarke
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to work on the development of modelling techniques, based on existing novel high resolution, massively parallel schemes with the immersed boundaries approach employed for simulation of flows in porous media.
  Advanced control for motorcycle stabilisation and crash avoidance (JF1UF2019)
  Dr J Fleming, Dr W Midgley
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motorcycles are involved in a disproportionately high number of deaths and serious injuries on the road. even though motorcycles drove only 0.9% of the distance covered by all vehicles on British roads in 2018, they accounted for 20% of deaths and 23% of serious injuries.
  An integrated approach for damage identification in composite materials (KB2UF2019)
  Dr K Baxevanakis, Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 30 November 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-destructive inspection based on acoustics is today one the primary methods for the identification of damage precursors in components and structures.
  Bio-Tribology of synovial joint arthroplasty (NMUF2019)
  Dr N Morris, Dr H Rahnejat
Application Deadline: 7 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An increasing proportion of the population suffer from joint pain which stems from wear and tear, injury and arthritis. In severe cases the only option is to completely replace the joint.

  Dr P Hubbard, Dr C Ward
Application Deadline: 14 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Intelligent Robotics in Difficult and Dangerous Environments (TBUF2019)
  Dr T Bamber, Dr P Ferreira
Application Deadline: 1 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dangerous and difficult tasks are carried out by human operators on a daily basis which are not safe or appropriate for them to be doing.
  Multifunctional alloys: Manufacture of high performing porosity-engineered alloys (CTUF2019)
  Dr C Torres-Sanchez, Prof P Conway
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The simultaneous control of alloying materials coupled with the porosity gradation is a dilemma that currently intrigues researchers.
  Multi-scale modelling of bone fracture (SLUF2019)
  Dr S Li, Prof V Silberschmidt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone fracture affects millions of people’s life worldwide. In UK alone, there are approximately more than 850,000 new fractures each year, and the estimated annual cost for bone fracture related treatment reached more than £2 billion.
  Next generation hybrid-hybrid machining of critical aerospace parts
  Dr A Roy, Dr L Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Please describe the project, up to 250 words. *. The application of laser assisted machining/processing has shown promise in reducing tool wear in the machining of difficult-to-machine aerospace materials, such as, metal matrix composites (MMCs).
  Optimizing muscle mechanics for smart prosthetic (SL3UF2019)
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Restoration of human functional activity has been a drive for many centuries dating back to early Egyptian and Greek civilizations.
  Performance aspects in the development of the smart prosthetic lower limb (SL2UF2019)
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Restoration of human functional activity has been a drive for many centuries dating back to early Egyptian and Greek civilizations.
  Predicting failure in crystalline materials using machine learning techniques
  Dr A Roy, Dr M Pacella
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Single crystal materials are extensively used in components ranging from the smallest (e.g. micro-lens, MEMS devices) to the largest sizes (e.g.
  Prediction of microscale geometry and performance of 3D-printed medical implants (AGUF2019)
  Dr A Gleadall
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cutting-edge medical implants for bone fracture repair are manufactured from biodegradable polymers because, unlike permanent devices, they are fully absorbed by the body over several months and do not need surgical removal after healing.
  Reducing Wind Turbine Vibrations using Maximum Entropy (WMUF2019)
  Dr W Midgley, Dr P Fleming
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vibration due to wind loading can cause fatigue damage to the blades and the structure of modern wind turbines. The inherent uncertainty in wind conditions makes controlling these turbines difficult and conservative algorithms are often used to control them.
  Re-Purposing – A Symbiotic Approach to Manufacturing – Reducing Resource Consumption Whilst Meeting Social Needs (SAM20)
  Dr J Colwill, Dr D Whalley
Application Deadline: 14 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
