Non-prismatic composite beams of standard airfoil cross sections are used in Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine blades to produce green energy.
  Ballistic impact response of multi-layered shields
  Dr A Soleiman-Fallah, Dr B Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In an optimal design, more often than not, an initial configuration of a structure must be modified several times to provide the optimal arrangement.
  Dynamic response of impact-loaded crushable auxetic metamaterials
  Dr A Soleiman-Fallah, Dr B Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Auxetic metamaterials possess an artificially designed microstructure allowing them to offer some unique features not readily observed in natural materials.
  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.
  Biomass Combustion Ash in the Removal of Micro-pollutants from Water
  Dr S Soltani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK is committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80% compared to the 1990 emission levels by the year 2050. Negative emission technologies such as biomass combustion with carbon capture is vital to meet the Paris Agreement climate targets.
  Multi-fidelity Modelling of Electronics Cooling
  Dr J Tyacke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electronics cooling is critical to the reliable performance of a vast array of todays technologies including datacentres, electric vehicles, avionics, telecommunications to name only a few.
  Automotive crowdsourcing
  Prof J Giacomin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Problem Statement. Among innovation experts crowdsourcing is considered to be a highly cost effective manner for businesses to connect with their customers, identify new design concepts and outsource work.
  Control of IC Engine Emissions with Addition of Hydrogen
  Prof T Megaritis, Dr L Ganippa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Utilisation of hydrogen gas mixtures as means of controlling engine exhaust emissions through combustion improvements or aftertreatment systems enhanced performance.
  Control of IC Engine Emissions with Addition of Hydrogen
  Prof T Megaritis, Dr L Ganippa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Utilisation of hydrogen gas mixtures as means of controlling engine exhaust emissions through combustion improvements or aftertreatment systems enhanced performance.
  Developing Squeeze-Film Levitation
  Prof M Atherton, Prof T Stolarski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Squeeze-film levitation (SFL) is a means of separation and non-contact movement of one surface over another, e.g. conveying and bearings.
  The Development of an Artificial Heart
  Prof A Khir
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Heart failure is defined as the inability of the heart to pump and circulate blood around the body to provide nutrients to the various organs.
  Digital Process interation Human-robot for improved brazing safety and productivity NPL
  Prof A Kennedy, Dr Y Tian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Brazing is a well-established manufacturing process for a range of different safety critical components, however, a number steps are still operator dependent.
  Characterising thermal fatigue at mix points in industrial piping (NSIRC 227)
  Mr A Basso, Dr T London
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Industrial pipelines are extensively used to transport fluids at high temperatures and pressures. This scope is crucial, especially for the Oil & Gas and Nuclear sectors, which are concerned about sharp temperature gradient fields.

  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.
