  MechEng-ET-568: Further development of the aqueous Al-ion battery currently being pioneered at the University of Southampton.
  Research Group: Energy Technologies
  Dr R Wills
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aluminum-ion (Al-ion) batteries, offer lower cost more abundant electrode materials, higher thermal stability and higher theoretical energy density than lithium-ion batteries.
  The development of a fuel cell stack (power generator) for APU applications
  Dr A El-Kharouf
Application Deadline: 3 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project focuses on the development of a low weight, low volume portable fuel cell device that can be used either as an APU system for small military vehicles or as a power supply for soldiers’ operation.
  Development of a regime map for the process of seeded granulation
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr N Rahmanian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Granulation of powders is a key unit operation in many chemical industries. In particular, the detergent and pharmaceutical processing industries, where uniform granular products are essential for optimum operation of the active ingredients contained within the particles.
  Wearable Robotics for Healthcare
  Dr A Tzemanaki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Type of award. PhD Research Studentship. Department. Mechanical Engineering. Scholarship. Minimum £14,777 - £15,009 p.a. Duration.
  Digitally interfaced high-speed LED-SPAD arrays for environment-aware wireless systems
  Prof M Dawson, Dr J Herrnsdorf
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start date. October 2019. Duration. 3.5 yrs. Background. Digital cameras and active-matrix displays are powerful examples of how arrays of optical receivers and emitters can have transformative impact.
  Embrittlement Cutting of Structural Steel and Alloys - SRPe NMIS-IDP
  Dr A Maheri, Dr Amir Siddiq
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are a number of well-established cutting techniques, such as laser, waterjet, plasma, saw, shear and explosive, which are widely used for the cutting of structural steels.
  Performance Evaluation and Failure Analysis of Preventive Corrosion/Erosion Coatings Used in Power Plant and Refinery
  Dr D Daniel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fossil fuels are currently the major energy source with approximately 80% of total energy consumption of the world. Renewable energy including traditional biomass contributes to about 14%.
  Developing AI approach to autonomous dismantling/packaging of nuclear installations
  Dr X Jia, Prof Shane Xie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At some stage in the decommissioning of nuclear installations (e.g., reactors and gloveboxes), it is inevitable that large metal structures (e.g., reactor vessels, gloveboxes, structural components) need to be cut into smaller pieces to be packed in containers, for temporary storage or permanent disposal or simply for transportation.
  Developing NMR methods to characterise water transport through graphene-based membranes
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Graphene oxide membranes (GOMs) have shown significant promise as filtration devices since they are impermeable to many substances but not to water.
  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.
  New responsive electrolytes for energy conversion
  Dr A Martinez-Felipe, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fuel cells have high efficiency, generate low levels of emissions, and can consume renewable sources, in combination with energy vectors, making them excellent candidates as for alternative power production technologies.
