  Enhancing the performance, condition, safety and reliability of offshore wind energy infrastructure systems using optimal design, inspections, structural health monitoring and structural control
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr P Dunning, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wind turbines are exposed to frequent structural damage increasing the cost of wind energy generation. To drive these costs down, this project will develop new automated methods for detection of structural damage to wind turbines by examining vibration responses measured by sensors attached to the structure.
  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.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in The effect of non-neutral winds on wind power aerodynamics
  Dr M Placidi, Dr P Hancock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Renewable sources provided 29.3% of the electricity generated in the UK in 2017, with offshore wind turbines producing some 21% of that, and registering an increased capacity of 27% during the same year [1]; these trends are predicted to grow in line with 2030 and 2050 targets [2].
  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.
  Integrated Aero/Hydro/Structural Analysis and Multi-objective Optimisation of Floating Wind Turbines
  Dr A Maheri, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Floating wind energy is potentially a highly scalable future energy source. Almost 80% of the Europe wind resources are in waters with +60 m depth, where floating offshore wind turbines are deemed to be the natural solutions.
