  Computational modelling and simulation of bio-inspired structures
  Dr P Khazaeinejad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bio-inspired structures draw their primary inspiration from the sheer fecundity of nature in the diversity of forms and their constant evolution in order to better adapt to their environment.
  Fire suppression capabilities of gas-like micromist
  Dr S Dembele, Dr K Volkov, Dr A Heidari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proclamation of the Montreal protocol in 1987, phasing out ozone depleting halons as fire suppression agent has led to a worldwide research and development effort to find alternative systems.
  Shape optimisation for aesthetics/functional requirements in the context of additive manufacturing
  Dr P Khazaeinejad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite significant advances in techniques of structural design in the past decades, there are still significant hurdles for achieving a harmonious balance between form and function.
  Simulation and optimisation of a spacecraft propulsion system based on a Field Reversed Configuration plasmoid using deep learning and machine learning algorithms
  Dr P Shaw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to investigate an enabling technology for a more significant and complex system based on a High-Energy Density Electromechanical Thruster based on Stabilized Liner Compression of Plasma that could lead to manned exploration of the Solar system [1].
  ’Robotic Grasping using Dynamic Active-Pixel Vision Sensor’’
  Dr Y Zweiri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main aim of this project is to develop a dynamic vision-based grasping system which can detect, track and manipulate unknown objects during a complex manufacturing or biomedical engineering processes to achieve a stable and safe manipulation in real time.
  An investigation into transonic flows over high pressure gas turbine blade tip
  Dr Z Saleh, Prof J Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Propulsion, in particular the gas turbine engines are a significantly important theme in the aerospace industry, any enhancement in the performance of these engines will have a great impact on the economics of the aviation sector [Stephens et al, 2007].
  Effect of Induced Plasticity on the Very High Cycle Fatigue of aluminium alloy under biaxial stress field
  Dr M Grasso, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most important task in the design process is the assessment of cyclic loading since half of the mechanical failures are due to fatigue.
  Feature extraction and tracking for haptic systems integration with Dynamic Active-pixel Vision Sensor (DAVIS)
  Dr O Duran, Dr Y Zweiri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Feature detection and tracking objects in computer vision have been widely used in industry applications to control and enhance robots’ performance.
  Knowledge based process planning using manufacturing big data
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the era of the fourth industrial revolution, dubbed as Industry 4.0, manufacturing resources will be digitised and integrated into a digital ecosystem of manufacturing network.
  Mechanical Properties of Interfaces in 3D Printed Single- and Multi-Material Parts
  Dr M Grasso, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive Manufacturing techniques can be seen as an important change in the manufacturing methodology as the final form is achieved through a bottom-up approach, via the addition of material in a layer-by-layer fashion.
