  LNG sloshing and Leidenfrost droplet dynamics – modelling gas-cushioned liquid-solid impacts with phase change
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the walls of its containing tank and the impact of droplets with very hot surfaces are two examples of liquid-solid impacts in which the liquid may be close to thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding gas/vapour.
  Initiatives for Sustainable Urban Development in China: Focusing on Flooding and Stormwater Management
  Dr C Jun
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

With cities getting bigger and climate change threatening to bring more extreme weather, the concept of “sponge cities” has been proposed in China, which is a reimagination of the urban environment where raindrop is captured, controlled and reused.
  Explosive boiling – the superheat limit of liquid evaporation
  Dr H Zhao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to understand and model the superheat limit of liquid evaporation which underpins the phenomena of explosive boiling.
  Autonomous Systems for Offshore Wind O&M – Strategies, Guidelines, and Tools, Renewable Energy – PhD (Funded)
  Dr A Pillai, Dr L Johanning
Application Deadline: 17 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The studentship will be awarded on the basis of merit for 4 years of full-time study to commence in September 2019 with at least three months to be spent working in the offices of the industrial sponsor.
  Computational Framework for Metal Forming of High Strength Alloys
  Dr Amir Siddiq, Dr M Kartal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conventional metal forming processes involve high cost and lead times because of design and manufacturing of product specific tooling for new materials and parts.
  PhD Studentship in the influence of inelastic damage on the crack growth behaviour of 316H stainless steels
  Dr C Davies
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of fracture mechanics leading to the award of a PhD degree. Please check your suitability at the following web site.
  Development of tritium release model for advanced Li8PbO6 breeder materials for compact spherical tokamaks
  Dr Sam Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed research will accelerate the development of advanced ceramic breeder materials for compact spherical tokamaks.
  Aircraft flutter suppression using plasma
  Dr W Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aircrafts can be lighter when composites are using. The structure would become more ‘flexible’, particularly for the wings. To prevent catastrophic structural failure from resonance coupled with aerodynamic loads, prevention and suppression of flutter are critical to design and operate air vehicles.
  Innovative Development of Platform Train Interface Hardware.
  Dr C Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference Number. CIJ-2018-1-PhD. Project Summary. This research will look into developing realistic and adaptable technologies for improving the platform train interface for those with a disability or impairment.
  The Development, Simulation and Optimisation of an Advanced Robotic Manufacturing Cell for the Rotational Moulding Process
  Dr P Martin, Mr M Kearns
Application Deadline: 27 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Queen’s University Belfast have been at the forefront of developments in rotational moulding technologies for more than 30 years (www.qub.ac.uk/pprc).
