  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.
  Advanced design of fibre reinforced composites - using multiscale reliability analysis and optimisation
  Dr P Dunning, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to advance the design of components made from fibre reinforced composite materials, by combining techniques in multiscale analysis, structural reliability and design optimisation.
  Application of Nanotechnology in Drilling Engineering
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Production from unconventional hydrocarbon resources, such as shale gas, shale oil, deepwater and arctic reservoirs requires advanced drilling and extraction technologies.
  Bio-inspired joints for metal-composite structures
  Prof M Kashtalyan, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining dissimilar materials such metals and fibre-reinforced composites in structural components has potential to reduce weight and improve structural performance in many applications.
  Biomechanical modelling of the human hand for improved control of myoelectric prostheses
  Dr E Chadwick, Dr M Giannaccini
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The loss of a hand or greater part of the upper limb can mean a devastating loss of function for an individual. Myoelectric prostheses are robotic hands intended for replacement of the natural hand in cases of hand amputation or limb difference.
  Computational Framework for Metal Forming of High Strength Alloys
  Dr Amir Siddiq, Dr M Kartal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conventional metal forming processes involve high cost and lead times because of design and manufacturing of product specific tooling for new materials and parts.
  Continuous separation of conglomerate forming enantiomers using crystallization process
  Dr A Majumder, Dr D Dionisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enantiomers are the results of chirality or handedness of molecules which are the non-superimposable mirror images of each other.
  Control of drill-string vibrations
  Dr S S Aphale, Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Drill-strings possess a rich nonlinear dynamic behaviour. Torsional vibrations are a main cause of concern and current area of research interest in the wider academic as well as industrial research community.
  Durability analysis in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles
  Dr M Aleyaasin, Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project , the heavy duty hybrid electric vehicles is considered for the investigation. The propulsion in these trucks is based on parallel operation of a bank of lithium batteries and series of hydrogen fuel cells.
  Efficient simulation of the effect of mixing and flow condition on product crystal qualities in a continuous crystallizer using coupled CFD-PBE approach
  Dr A Majumder, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The majority of the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) used in the pharmaceutical industries are crystals of organic molecules.
  Enhanced design and manufacture of cold-formed steel structures
  Dr A Bagheri Sabbagh, Dr P Dunning, Dr Amir Siddiq, Dr P C Davidson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lightweight cold-formed steel (CFS) structures made of thin-walled sections are gaining popularity as a sustainable, affordable construction form for low- and medium-rise commercial and residential buildings.
  Enhanced structural design for floating offshore wind turbines
  Dr A Bagheri Sabbagh, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wind turbines are one of the renewable sources of energy which is becoming a sustainable alternative way to produce energy, and which is growing fast all around the world.
  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.
  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  Fractional-order control for precision mechatronic systems
  Dr S S Aphale, Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Integer-order control schemes aimed at high-precision positioning performance of mechatronic systems have been extensively researched thus far.
