  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Development of methods to evaluate dynamic fracture toughness of metallic materials at very high loading rates under conditions of limited plastic deformation
  Dr Y Janin, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Many important industrial applications require that dynamic fracture toughness of materials is quantified and the accuracy of safety assessments depends on this material property.
  Experimental and numerical characterisation and modelling of viscoelastic/viscoplastic crack growth in adhesive joints
  Dr G Alfano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesive bonding is a widely used technique in the aerospace and automotive industry, whose advantages with respect to more conventional connections of structural components include the great reduction of stress concentration and weight.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) – Crack Tip Constraint in Typical High Strength Steel Components in Arctic Conditions
  Dr R Kulka, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background.
  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.
  Modelling wave-induced sea ice breakup on small and large scales
  Dr F Montiel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea ice is a key component of the climate system, which is experiencing significant changes as a consequence of global warming. The rapidly decreasing sea ice extent in the Arctic Ocean means solar radiations are increasingly being absorbed into the ocean, causing further melting and weakening of the sea ice cover.
  Applications of Advanced Imaging and Simulation Methods in Failure Analysis of Composite Materials
  Research Group: Engineering Materials
  Prof I. Sinclair
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The exploitation of lightweight composite materials represent a vital element in the future efficiency and sustainability of the transportation sector.
  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the elementary building blocks of living organisms. The correct functioning of living organisms is therefore conditioned to the ability of living cells to withstand forces and deformations and to promptly adapt to their mechanical environment.
  Hydraulically fractured reservoirs and optimising EOR processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati, Dr M Manzari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydraulic fracturing is a method of producing hydrocarbons from shale reservoirs. Understanding the geomechanics of the reservoir is a key factor to predicting the fracture propagation and fluid flow in this type of rocks.
  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
  PhD Studentship in the field of temperature and strain rate effect on mechanical properties of chocolate
  Dr M Charalambides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of temperature and strain rate effect on mechanical properties of chocolate, leading to the award of a PhD degree.
