Mechanical Engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Manchester

We have 22 Mechanical Engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Manchester

Mechanical metamaterials for impact protection

Aim. Optimisation of mechanical metamaterials to reduce impact severity. Summary. Mechanical metamaterials are engineered to have properties that cannot be achieved with their unstructured, intrinsic constituents. Read more

Fur and Feathers: colour, structure and flow control

The objective in this exciting cross-disciplinary project is to investigate the potential of a bio-inspired coating of flexible devices to passively modify energetic modes of an unsteady crossflow and to assess, for the first time, the role of colour in determining mechanical properties. Read more

Developing a method to measure the energy performance of buildings in hot climates

Introduction. Energy House Labs at the University of Salford invites applications for a self-funded PhD position in Mechanical Engineering, we will provide world leading academic supervision and expertise alongside globally leading industry partners. Read more

Flight mechanics and stability in birds during extreme manoeuvres of take-off and landing

During take-off birds accelerate primarily through from the ground reaction force, with aerodynamics playing a lesser role. In landing things are quite different; birds use mainly aerodynamic drag on the wings to decelerate, with the legs bringing them finally to rest after touchdown. Read more

Compact optical measurement systems for onboard aerodynamic measurements

  Research Group: Aerospace Engineering
This PhD will develop and implement compact optical measurement systems suitable for installation on race cars and aircraft. Using machine vision technology and event-based cameras, properties such as fluid velocity, surface pressure, and boundary layer states will be measured. Read more

Advanced methods for deployment and analysis of Pressure Sensitive Paint

This project aims to develop a measurement technology (pressure sensitive paint) to work in an industrial blast range. The technique has been demonstrated at small scales and in University facilities; however, challenges associated with scaling up to industrial tests are complex. Read more
Last chance to apply

Investigation of base flows with hypersonic freestreams

The sensitivity of base flow topology to exit area ratio and pressure ratio is extremely important in the design of high-speed vehicles, especially missiles. Read more

Understanding strain localisation around hydrides in irradiated zirconium alloys

Are you someone with a passion to continue learning? Do you believe a career is about putting something back into the world? Does having access to some of the UK’s newest and best research facilities make you feel like a kid in a toy shop? Consider becoming a part of our team!. Read more
