  Multi-scale Characterisation of Residual Stress in AGR Fuel Cladding
  Dr H Coules
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Residual stresses in the stainless steel cladding of spent Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor (AGR) nuclear fuel elements affect their behaviour during storage.
  Modelling of primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC) of nickel based alloys (NBAs) in nuclear (PWR) primary coolant
  Prof M C Smith, Dr A Jivkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nickel based alloy (NBA) materials and their associated weld metals are of interest to new build and advanced nuclear reactors due to their superior structural performance when compared with traditional steel materials.
  Investigation of the fracture behaviour of materials at ambient temperature under quasi-static conditions.
  Dr GR Rothwell
Application Deadline: 19 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The outer construction of nuclear transport packages relies heavily on two grades of austenitic stainless steel, 316 and 304. These steels provide excellent material properties at both ambient and elevated temperature primarily due to their post yield ductility and high failure strain.
  Modelling environmentally assisted cracking in Ni-based superalloys
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr J Fonseca
Application Deadline: 15 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ni-based superalloys in aircraft engines are routinely subjected to temperatures in the range of 650-700oC during operating conditions.
  Finite element modelling of heart valve deformation and mitral regurgitation after mitraclip implantation - Ref: LG2UF2018
  Dr L Zhao
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

he mitral valve (MV) is a complex structure regulating forward flow of blood between the left atrium (LA) and left ventricle (LV) of human heart.
  4 year Engineering Doctorate (EngD): Simulation and on-line measurement of temperature during milling processes (Sponsors: University of Sheffield AMRC, and University of Strathclyde AFRC)
  Dr M Marshall, Dr P Crawforth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start date. 2 September 2019. Duration. 4 years. Stipend. Tax-free stipend of £18,000 per year, plus all tuition fees paid at UK/EU rates.
  New DIC-Based Material Test Standards: Design and Validation
  Research Group: Engineering Materials
  Prof F Pierron
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Within the past ten years, the availability of digital imaging hardware and powerful image processing algorithms has led to the wide diffusion of strain mapping techniques like Digital Image Correlation (DIC).
  An investigation into Soft Tissue Biomechanics Using Computational Fluid Dynamics
  Dr M Lappa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aim of the present project is the modelling and numerical simulation of soft-tissue growth in rotating bioreactors and related morphological evolution.
  EngD Studentship Opportunity in Additive Manufacture of Engineering Steels Using Flux-Cored Wire
  Dr M Whiting
Application Deadline: 6 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Corewire Ltd manufacture flux-cored wire welding consumables. They also manufacture equipment which uses these wire consumables to repair and resurface a variety of high wear resistance steel components.
  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.
