  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.
  Analysis of damage mechanisms in composite risers and umbilicals
  Dr M Menshykova, Dr O Menshykov, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

With increasing water depth, especially in excess of 1000 m, both platform designs and the design of the risers and umbilicals begin to become highly weight-sensitive.
  Behaviour and Design of Natural Fibre Reinforced Composites
  Dr A I Osofero, Dr O Menshykov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research will focus on the development of environmentally friendly fibre reinforced composites with improved physical and mechanical properties.
  Bioinspired Robot Swarm for Monitoring Tasks
  Dr M Giannaccini, Dr A Starkey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for one doctoral position in robotics at the School of Engineering, University of Aberdeen. The successful candidate will undertake research focusing on bioinspired swarm robotics for monitoring applications.
  Biomechanical modelling of tendon transfers in the upper limb
  Dr E Chadwick, Dr D Blana
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traumatic injuries to the hand and arm can result in serious loss of function for individuals, leading to an inability to carry out the activities of daily living, and a loss of independence.
  Characterisation of flow around a bivalve (Pecten Maximus) shell
  Dr M Stewart, Prof V Nikora
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of studies have highlighted the ability of freshwater mussels to behave as so-called ecosystem engineers; actively modifying their local environment through mechanisms such as filtering and passively by modifying bed roughness.
  Computational framework for mechanical integrity assessment of offshore wind turbines
  Dr Amir Siddiq, Dr M Kartal, Dr M Aleyaasin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The offshore wind turbines are subjected to various wind and tidal loads which can result into earlier than expected fatigue of their components.
  Computational modelling of deformation and failure in additively manufactured high strength alloys
  Dr Amir Siddiq, Dr M Kartal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conventional manufacturing processes involve high cost and lead times because of design and manufacturing of product specific tooling for new materials and parts.
  Constrained Control of Nonlinear Engineering Systems in The Presence of The Delay
  Dr V Vaziri, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The real world is inherently nonlinear, and particularly in mechanical systems this nonlinearity arises from one or more of the following reasons.
  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.
