  Predicting fracture risk in metastatic bone disease: A combined finite element modelling and machine learning approach
  Prof P Pankaj
Application Deadline: 18 December 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The femur (or thighbone) is a common site for the growth of tumours due to different types of cancers that originate elsewhere but spread to the bone.
  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 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.
  PhD Studentship: EPSRC “Composites for Life”, Engineering, Material Science or Physics – PhD (Funded)
  Dr L Savage
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD student to investigate the nature of fracture in fibre-based polymer composite systems.
  Micromechanics of high-rate loaded composite media
  Dr A Soleiman-Fallah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In a composite ply the nature of wave propagation is closely associated with the alignment of fibres (for the unidirectional case) and warp and weft arrangements (for the woven case) among other parameters, e.g.
  Composite components with bio-inspired micro-structures: Exploiting improved damage tolerance
  Prof S Pinho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a Ph.D. studentship in the Department of Aeronautics. The successful candidate will have the opportunity of working with a dedicated team involving various academics within a larger project with Rolls-Royce.
  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.
  An integrated approach for damage identification in composite materials (KB2UF2019)
  Dr K Baxevanakis, Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 30 November 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-destructive inspection based on acoustics is today one the primary methods for the identification of damage precursors in components and structures.
  NSIRC 175 PhD Studentship – Prediction of fatigue limit of additive manufactured materials
  Dr M Dore, Dr Y Zhang, Ms H Stedman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In fatigue design, it is important to know the fatigue limit of the material to be used in order to avoid fatigue failure.
  Bio-inspired ceramic composites for dental and orthopaedic applications
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural structural materials such as seashell nacre, human teeth and bones exhibit remarkable mechanical properties i.e. with combined high strength and toughness.
  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.
  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.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
