  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].
  Integrating with Renewable Energy Sources: Low Pressure Steam Turbine Last Stage Blade Durability
  Research Group: Engineering Materials
  Prof P.A. Reed
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increased deployment of renewable energy sources requires integration with conventional power plant to back-fill the inevitable dips in supply.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Advanced computer modelling of turbine stator well flow and heat transfer
  Research Group: Aerodynamics and Environmental Flow
  Prof J Chew
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research will investigate the complex flow and heat transfer occurring in gas turbines using advanced computational fluid dynamics, and aiming to improve current design methods and understanding in industry.
  Thermal effects and anti-icing efficiency of an icing protection system for large wind turbines
  Prof J Wang, Dr D Venetsanos, Dr Y Lin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The abundant wind resource in cold and high altitude regions in the world is attractive to wind energy technologies.
  Computational design and development of rotating heat pipes for gas turbine cooling
  Dr C Abeykoon, Prof A Turan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas turbines are critical elements for power generation and transportation systems. They transform the chemical energy contained in the fuel by combustion, into mechanical energy.
  Economic and environmental impact analysis of wind turbine based on alternative materials (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/CHEUNG)
  Dr W Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cleaner environmental technologies offer various benefits such as reduced emissions, less waste and cost savings from minimum energy and resource requirements during production and operation.
  Development of a gas turbine engine as a range extender
  Prof K Jiang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Birmingham has a worldwide reputation in developing microengines. We are currently looking for a student to a radical microturbine engine as a range extender for electric cars.
  Wind Turbine Operation and Maintenance in Extreme Conditions – How will Springing and Ringing Loads Have an Influence on O&M?
  Dr X Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. The mix of energy supply worldwide has changed dramatically in the last few decades. In the UK, in order to tackle climate change and increasing energy consumption, there has been a clear movement from fossil towards renewable and sustainable energy sources.
  Modelling reactions between Ti-alloys and ceramic shells in turbine component castings
  Dr N Warnken, Prof S Blackburn, Prof N Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future jet engines will have to be lighter and more fuel efficient. A major contribution to this will come from creating lighter rotating parts, which are still being able to endure extremely high temperatures.
  Using Artificial Intelligence to Study Variations in Gas Turbine Performance
  Research Group: Computational Engineering and Design
  Dr D Toal, Prof A Keane
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Artificial Intelligence (AI) allows the rapid processing of images. In the context of gas turbines this means that scans and video imaging of engine parts could be automatically assessed for variations in shape that can have significant impact of fuel consumption and engine life.
