In advanced manufacturing sensor data must be used to achieve the increasingly tight tolerance requirements required for the latest products.
  NSIRC236 Development of online inspection and monitoring of WAAM
  Dr C Nageswaran, Ms H Stedman, Mr J Lambert
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Additive manufacturing (AM) is a suite of processes that “join materials to make parts from 3D model data, usually layer upon layer”.
  Two-dimensional layered materials as catalysts for fine chemical production
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
