Improving the mechanical properties of carbon fibre composites via inkjet printed polymer inclusions

Carbon fibre composites have been toughened, and strengthened, by using inkjet printing to deposit discrete droplets of polymer onto the pre-preg that is used to produce the final composite material. Read more

Predicting the inkjet printing performance of particle-containing inks

There has been a lot of research performed into predicting of the jetting performance of inks for inkjet printing. However, to date, the ‘inks’ used have been simple solvents. Read more

Lubrication in Wind Turbines

We have a vacancy for an enthusiastic and self-motivated PhD student for a PhD project in the Centre for Doctoral Training, CDT in Tribology and the Leonardo Centre for Tribology at the University of Sheffield funded by GE Renewable Energy. Read more

Fully Funded PhD Studentship in EPSRC Centre for Doctor Training (CDT) - Resilient decarbonised Fuel Energy Systems.

Utilisation of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) as blend with petroleum-derived aviation fuels or standalone replacements offers an advantageous step towards decarbonised aviation, for foreseeable future, in response to the net-zero emission target by 2050. Read more

Whatever the weather - effect of environmental conditions on Additive Manufactured (3D Printed) polymer parts

Despite gaining increasing attention throughout a range of industrial sectors, powdered-polymer Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes such as Laser Sintering are being held back by a lack of information about the behaviour of parts in real-life conditions. Read more

In-the-body Soft Robotics

The University of Sheffield's Biomedical Robotics Laboratory and Microrobotics Laboratory within the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering invite applications for a PhD Scholarship on In-the-body Soft Robotics from talented and excellent graduates. Read more

EPSRC CDT in Advanced Biomedical Materials

Applications will soon be invited from qualified graduates for fully-funded four-year PhD studentships in the area of Advanced Biomedical Materials. Read more

Mechanics of deformation and induced surface integrity in micro-cutting

Micro-cutting is increasingly used to modify the surface properties of functional surfaces as well as in the generation of mechanical systems for Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS). Read more

Additive manufacturing of skin-facing antimicrobial surgical devices

This is an interdisciplinary project involving additive manufacturing (3D printing), microbiology and tissue culture. In previous projects1, we developed 3D printed parts with inherent antimicrobial properties that can be printed into complex geometries and withstand sterilisation well. Read more

Turbulent drag reduction by passive techniques

This study will investigate passive methods to achieve a reduction of friction produced by wall-bounded turbulent flows. The approach will be an effective blend of numerical and mathematical techniques. Read more
