  Electrocatalysis for Energy Conversion and Storage
  Prof A Cuesta Ciscar, Prof D E Macphee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electrochemistry allows to convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy, and vice versa, with high efficiency and, therefore, electrochemical systems are excellent candidates to store energy from renewables and convert it back into work when needed.
  Enhancing the conductivity of the solid electrolyte Ba7Nb4MoO20 for application in intermediate temperature fuel cells
  Prof A McLaughlin, Dr E Wildman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fuel cells convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy with high efficiency and low emission of pollutants. In a fuel cell the reaction between hydrogen and oxygen produces water and electricity and as such provides a clean alternative to fossil fuels.
  Advanced design of fibre reinforced composites - using multiscale reliability analysis and optimisation
  Dr P Dunning, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to advance the design of components made from fibre reinforced composite materials, by combining techniques in multiscale analysis, structural reliability and design optimisation.

This project aims to advance the design of components made from fibre reinforced composite materials, by combining techniques in multiscale analysis, structural reliability and design optimisation.
  Analysis of damage mechanisms in composite risers and umbilicals
  Dr M Menshykova, Dr O Menshykov, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

With increasing water depth, especially in excess of 1000 m, both platform designs and the design of the risers and umbilicals begin to become highly weight-sensitive.
  Application of Nanotechnology in Drilling Engineering
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Production from unconventional hydrocarbon resources, such as shale gas, shale oil, deepwater and arctic reservoirs requires advanced drilling and extraction technologies.
  Behaviour and Design of Natural Fibre Reinforced Composites
  Dr A I Osofero, Dr O Menshykov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research will focus on the development of environmentally friendly fibre reinforced composites with improved physical and mechanical properties.
  Biomass-derived oils catalytic cracking in existing refinery processes
  Dr I Graca, Dr A McCue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The partial replacement of crude oil by renewable sources to produce high quality transportation fuels is a timely and interesting topic.
  Computational Framework for Metal Forming of High Strength Alloys
  Dr Amir Siddiq, Dr M Kartal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conventional metal forming processes involve high cost and lead times because of design and manufacturing of product specific tooling for new materials and parts.
  Computational modelling of deformation and failure in additively manufactured high strength alloys
  Dr Amir Siddiq, Dr M Kartal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conventional manufacturing processes involve high cost and lead times because of design and manufacturing of product specific tooling for new materials and parts.
  Conversion of waste plastics to useful chemicals, fuel and energy - LEVERHULME
  Dr W Afzal, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The remarkable properties of plastics make them the most commonly used modern materials since early twentieth century. Every year several hundreds of millions of tons of plastics are produced globally.
  Digital twin in micromachining through multiscale simulation
  Dr H Tan, Dr Amir Siddiq
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digital twin technology in manufacturing is the simulation technology that integrates multi-disciplinary, multi-physical quantity, multiscale and multi probability by making full use of the physical model, monitoring update, operation history and other data.
  Durability analysis in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles
  Dr M Aleyaasin, Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project , the heavy duty hybrid electric vehicles is considered for the investigation. The propulsion in these trucks is based on parallel operation of a bank of lithium batteries and series of hydrogen fuel cells.
  Dynamic Behaviour of Oil Palm Broom Fibre (OPBF) Reinforced Concrete
  Dr A I Osofero, Dr M Menshykova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research will focus on the development of sustainable natural fibre reinforced concrete for dynamic applications. Experimental investigations focusing on mechanical characterization of OPBF and the structural behaviour of the resulting composite will be carried out.
  Enhancing the performance, condition, safety and reliability of offshore wind energy infrastructure systems using optimal design, inspections, structural health monitoring and structural control
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr P Dunning, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wind turbines are exposed to frequent structural damage increasing the cost of wind energy generation. To drive these costs down, this project will develop new automated methods for detection of structural damage to wind turbines by examining vibration responses measured by sensors attached to the structure.
