Developing an algorithm for detecting placenta abnormalities

The placenta plays an important role during pregnancy by transporting nutrients to the fetus. Occasionally the placenta does not function properly, giving rise to a range of issues such as placenta accrete and intrauterine growth restrictions (IUGR). Read more

Investigating plastic behaviour in immature bones

There are many differences in mechanical properties between immature and adult bones. While adult bones have been studied extensively, particularly in relation to non-healthy ageing and the risk of fracture, there has been a lack of study on immature or young bones and their mechanical properties.

PhD in Computational Fracture Mechanics: Methods, Programming and Simulation

The aim of this PhD programme is to develop efficient numerical strategies for the prediction and assessment of fracture. Our group has got success in the development of new numerical strategies, e.g. Read more

Tailoring the Thermomechanical Properties of High Performance Aerospace & Automotive Composite Materials

Interested in high performance, lightweight composite materials? Take advantage of the fact that companies in the aerospace and automotive sectors are currently looking for good materials scientists and engineers with a composites PhD!. Read more

Information processing in swarms of extremely simple robots

Consider a swarm of a million robots. Such a swarm could simultaneously sample a million locations in the ocean, pollinate a million plants in a field, or target a million cancer cells within a human body. Read more

Reactive inkjet and textiles

The global market for printed textiles is in the region of $200 billion with inkjet printing playing a significant role. The PhD will investigate the various reactive inkjet mechanisms used in printed textiles, identifying research opportunities and investigating issues involved in expanding the role inkjet can play. Read more

Reactive inkjet printing

Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) have recently been printed using reactive inkjet printing. This PhD builds on that work aiming to expand the range of MOFs that can be printed and uncovering the advantages of using reactive inkjet printing as the production means. Read more
