  Investigation of the fracture behaviour of materials at ambient temperature under quasi-static conditions.
  Dr GR Rothwell
Application Deadline: 19 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The outer construction of nuclear transport packages relies heavily on two grades of austenitic stainless steel, 316 and 304. These steels provide excellent material properties at both ambient and elevated temperature primarily due to their post yield ductility and high failure strain.
  Development of inspection techniques for non-sharp defects
  Dr C Nageswaran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background/Description. The science of fracture mechanics, and hence the engineering assessments based on fracture mechanics, assume a sharp crack is present.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) – Crack Tip Constraint in Typical High Strength Steel Components in Arctic Conditions
  Dr R Kulka, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background.
  Bone-metal (brittle-elastic) bond durability and fatigue derived from coupled Acoustic Emission and X-ray Computed Tomography
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Tozzi, Prof G Blunn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Exploiting graphene and nanodiamond to enhance wear resistance of carbide-basedMaterials by Spark Plasma Sintering
  Dr V Garcia-Rocha, Prof SL Evans
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

(a) Scientific Excellence. Structural ceramics and their composites play an essential role in engineering. There is a need to find sustainable manufacturing processes to avoid climate change and at the same time ensure the performance and longevity of materials.
  An integrated approach for damage identification in composite materials
  Dr K Baxevanakis
Application Deadline: 24 May 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.
  Applications of Advanced Imaging and Simulation Methods in Failure Analysis of Composite Materials
  Research Group: Engineering Materials
  Prof I. Sinclair
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The exploitation of lightweight composite materials represent a vital element in the future efficiency and sustainability of the transportation sector.
  CNT/cement nanocomposite materials for structural applications for buildings
  Prof M Limbachiya, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with remarkable mechanical and electrical properties have been used for enhancement of mechanical properties of polymer matrix materials but its capability for enhancement of cement based materials has not been widely explored yet.
  Material instabilities in metal alloys: quantification and prediction (WS08)
  Dr K Baxevanakis
Application Deadline: 16 August 2019

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.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
