  Modelling Creep-Fatigue Damage and Life Prediction for Gas Turbine Rotors
  Prof W Sun
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current market conditions are such that combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants are now considering double two-shift operation, so potentially accruing upwards of 600 starts per year.

Sand and dust from arid regions is increasingly a problem for aircraft gas turbine engines, both military and civil.
  PhD in Materials Science - Stresses in single crystal superalloys
  Dr H Stone
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to be run in close collaboration between the University of Cambridge (Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy), Diamond Light Source and the ISIS Pulsed Neutron Spallation Source.
  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.
