Applications are invited for a PhD student to investigate the nature of fracture in fibre-based polymer composite systems.
  Composite components with bio-inspired micro-structures: Exploiting improved damage tolerance
  Prof S Pinho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a Ph.D. studentship in the Department of Aeronautics. The successful candidate will have the opportunity of working with a dedicated team involving various academics within a larger project with Rolls-Royce.
  Effect of Induced Plasticity on the Very High Cycle Fatigue of aluminium alloy under biaxial stress field
  Dr M Grasso, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most important task in the design process is the assessment of cyclic loading since half of the mechanical failures are due to fatigue.
  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.
  An integrated approach for damage identification in composite materials (KB2UF2019)
  Dr K Baxevanakis, Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 30 November 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.
  Bio-inspired ceramic composites for dental and orthopaedic applications
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural structural materials such as seashell nacre, human teeth and bones exhibit remarkable mechanical properties i.e. with combined high strength and toughness.
  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.
  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.
  Prediction of microscale geometry and performance of 3D-printed medical implants (AGUF2019)
  Dr A Gleadall
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cutting-edge medical implants for bone fracture repair are manufactured from biodegradable polymers because, unlike permanent devices, they are fully absorbed by the body over several months and do not need surgical removal after healing.
  Mapping a glassy “phase diagram”
  Dr A Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the nature and structure of materials far-from-equilibrium is one of the remaining grand challenges in condensed matter physics [1].
  Structural batteries mechanical resilience
  Dr ATR Rhead, Prof MSI Islam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Batteries based on carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) have the potential to supply power with an improved overall efficiency (vehicle power to weight rather than battery power to weight) compared to current battery technologies.
  Corrosion of Additively Manufactured Ni-Superalloys
  Research Group: PROCESSING
  Prof M Attallah, Dr S Cruchley
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from graduates with a first class, or upper second-class degree in an appropriate discipline such as, materials science and engineering, physics, aerospace, nuclear materials, or mechanical engineering for a PhD project on the understanding the corrosion properties of additively manufactured Ni-superalloys.
  Improving design against fatigue
  Dr H Basoalto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fatigue life prediction in the aerospace components relies on fracture mechanics for relatively long cracks (>1mm). Nevertheless, most of the fatigue life is spent while the crack is relatively short (.
  PhD in Bcc Titanium Superalloys for Aerospace Gas Turbines
  Dr S Knowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A funded 3-year UK/EU PhD studentship is available in the group of Dr Sandy Knowles within the School of Metallurgy and Materials at the University of Birmingham, with a stipend of at least £14,777 per year (industrial top up of ~£2000 expected).
