Aviation Fuels degradation

In jet engines, aviation fuel has a secondary purpose as a coolant in addition to being a fuel. As a result, it is subject to thermal stresses that may cause fuel degradation leading to deposit build up and potentially catastrophic engine failure. Read more

Towards next-generation carbon capture technology

This cross-disciplinary PhD project aims to provide new understanding of next-generation carbon capture technology, by co-optimising the fluid dynamics and chemistry of spray systems. Read more

Mechanical metamaterial

Supervisory Team.     Dr Scott Walker, Dr Susmita Naskar. Project description. This PhD studentship will involve a combination of theoretical, computational and experimental work, providing the students with a complete and holistic training and a diverse research experience. Read more

Stability and efficiency improvement of perovskite solar cells by controlling synthesis and deposition processing parameters

Organic–inorganic hybrid metal halide perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have gained extensive research interest in the last decade due to their low-cost fabrication, excellent optoelectronic properties, and rapid increase in power conversion efficiency. Read more

Accelerated discovery of light alloys for Circular Economy

Light metals are the backbone of the modern and future zero-emission manufacturing and circular economy. However, one of the adverse consequences of excessive use of metallic materials is that there are currently thousands of grades of metallic materials in commercial use. Read more

PhD in Alloy design for next generation high performing steel sections

  Research Group: Steels Processing
There are more steel alloys available than all other metals/alloys combined and advances in steel metallurgy/processing is still pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved in terms of strength and ductility. Read more

Droplet-wise condensation on smart engineered surfaces

Condensation is ubiquitous in nature and industry, but quite challenging to understand! In particular, it is of paramount importance in many engineering applications, including heat transfer, fog harvesting, printing and cleaning. Read more

Process modelling of biomass gasification systems integrated with CO2 capture

Combination of energy generation from biomass sources and CO2 capture technologies (Bio-CCS or BECCS) is already recognized as a potential option to tackle climate change in most scenarios, as it is linked to the concept of negative CO2 emissions. Read more
