PhD in Green Hydrogen Based Steel Manufacturing

  Research Group: Steels Processing
Steel is the most widely-used structural material in the world. If a product is not made of steel it is made using steel. Steel is at the heart of UK manufacturing sectors such as automotive, aerospace, construction, packaging and defence. Read more

Developing novel iron-rich cement

The cement and steel sectors are foundational to the UK and are essential to construct our infrastructure. Cement is the most manufactured commodity worldwide and due to the large demand and urbanisation, the industry is extremely resource and carbon intensive. Read more

Understanding the hydration of ferrite in Portland cement

To increase resource use efficiency in the UK cement industry, the formulation of Portland cement clinker will need to include a higher amount of ferrite minerals, but the fundamental understanding of hydration (reaction with water) of those minerals are still lacking. Read more

Fracture of Automotive Advanced High Strength Steels

Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) are increasingly used throughout the chassis of modern cars since they provide a high strength-to-weight ratio and improved crashworthiness due to greater energy absorption capabilities. Read more

Advanced scattering techniques for the investigation of irradiation damage in nuclear fusion materials

The aim of this PhD project, co-sponsored by the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA)/Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE), is to contribute to understanding of degradation of Fe-Cr alloys and ferritic-martensitic steel (Eurofer steel) under radiation as it is invaluable for the development of fusion reactors, especially for the assessment of its structural integrity.

Welding and joining of advanced dissimilar lightweight alloys

  Research Group: Advanced Automotive Analytics Research Institute
The automotive industry’s interest in the use of lightweight materials has significantly increased in recent years due to an enhanced demand for fuel efficiency and clean green technologies that improve environmental conditions. Read more

Elastic wave propagation

We have built our world out of steel, concrete, and other stiff solids. How well these structures endure depends on the tension and strains they are under, which are closely related to the material’s elastic behaviour. Read more
