  Integrating with Renewable Energy Sources: Low Pressure Steam Turbine Last Stage Blade Durability
  Research Group: Engineering Materials
  Prof P.A. Reed
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increased deployment of renewable energy sources requires integration with conventional power plant to back-fill the inevitable dips in supply.
  Thermal effects and anti-icing efficiency of an icing protection system for large wind turbines
  Prof J Wang, Dr D Venetsanos, Dr Y Lin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The abundant wind resource in cold and high altitude regions in the world is attractive to wind energy technologies.
  Computational design and development of rotating heat pipes for gas turbine cooling
  Dr C Abeykoon, Prof A Turan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas turbines are critical elements for power generation and transportation systems. They transform the chemical energy contained in the fuel by combustion, into mechanical energy.
  Economic and environmental impact analysis of wind turbine based on alternative materials (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/CHEUNG)
  Dr W Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cleaner environmental technologies offer various benefits such as reduced emissions, less waste and cost savings from minimum energy and resource requirements during production and operation.
  Modelling reactions between Ti-alloys and ceramic shells in turbine component castings
  Dr N Warnken, Prof S Blackburn, Prof N Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future jet engines will have to be lighter and more fuel efficient. A major contribution to this will come from creating lighter rotating parts, which are still being able to endure extremely high temperatures.
  Modelling of Dislocation-Microstructure Interaction at a Short Crack Tip - Ref: LG1UF2018
  Dr L Zhao
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nickel-based superalloys are particularly used in applications involving high temperatures and stresses, such as the critical gas-turbine blades and discs in aerospace and power-generation industries.
  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.
  Predicting failure in crystalline materials using machine learning techniques
  Dr A Roy, Dr M Pacella
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Single crystal materials are extensively used in components ranging from the smallest (e.g. micro-lens, MEMS devices) to the largest sizes (e.g.
