  3D Print and Additive Manufacturing of Wax and Plastic Injection Moulds.
  Dr E Sabet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers a chance to work on a truly disruptive and innovative research project in the high-tech and high-value manufacturing, with very high potential impact in aerospace and energy sectors.
  Size effects in pure and alloyed metals under dynamic loading
  Dr B. Gurrutxaga-Lerma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strength of metals and metallic alloys is usually thought to be independent of the system’s geometry and dimensions. However, at the micron scale this ceases to be true.
  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.
  Tackling microplastics pollution by advanced oxidation processes
  Dr E Chatzisymeon, Prof P Perona
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accumulation of plastics in the aquatic environment is a global issue of emerging concern. Small plastic particles known as microplastics (MP) represent about 92% of the total plastic waste.
  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.
  Investigation of Tectonic Effects on Pipeline Stabilty
  Dr S Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pipelines make an important group of structures called lifelines, as they support conducting water, oil and gas essential for life.
  Recycling Composites for Construction Applications (Advert Reference RDF20/EE/MCE/SHYHA)
  Dr I Shyha
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the UK, glass fibre reinforced plastic (GFRP) contributes to 75,000 tons end of life waste in addition to 6,200 tons production waste.
  3D printed polymer nanocomposites
  Dr O Istrate, Prof B Chen
Application Deadline: 12 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive manufacturing (3D printing) is one of several new technological breakthroughs that are expected to lead the factories of the future, where conventional equipment will be replaced by smart, flexible and customized systems.
  PhD vacancy (3 years) on experimental testing of thermoplastic automotive composites
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thermoplastic composites are gaining more and more interest in automotive, aerospace and sports applications, because of the short cycle times and recycling possibilities.
  PhD vacancy (4 years) on nondestructive testing (NDT) of composites using Guided Waves
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop robust guided waves NDT methods that can detect defects in Fiber reinforced plastic parts (focus on aerospace and automotive industry).
  Engineering functional partial joint replacement: a soft solution to a hard problem
  Dr M Bryant
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arthritis is a common problem and typically treatment includes replacing the articular surfaces with hard metal on both sides of the joint with intervening plastic or ceramic.
