  PhD Studentship in Mechanical Engineering - Novel Subsurface Inspection Radar to Inspect Tunnels and Tunnels Linings for improved maintenance
  Prof M Robinson
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 1 December 2019 for 3 years. Overview. The PhD study is to prepare for commercialisation and demonstration of a novel, portable radar system that provides a simple non-invasive mechanism for inspecting tunnel infrastructure.
  Graphene mediated erosion resistant protection for wind turbine blades (Advert Ref: RDFC19-R/EE/MCE/ELMARAKBI)
  Prof A Elmarakbi
Application Deadline: 13 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In collaboration with Applied Graphene Materials UK Ltd (https://www.appliedgraphenematerials.com), the Northumbria University is looking for a PhD candidate to develop and design new graphene related materials with high erosion resistance for wind turbine blade.
  PhD Studentship in Digital Energy Management for Buildings
  Dr S Walker
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 2 January 2020 for 3 years. Overview. Interested in Information and Communication Technologies for Buildings and Energy Management? This project will investigate ICT development and Data Quality enhancement for Building Energy Management.
  Development of Smart Memory Alloy with Enhanced Structural Performance under fire (Advert Reference: SF18-2/MCE/GONZALEZ SANCHEZ)
  Dr S Gonzalez Sanchez, Dr K Poologanathan, Dr B Nagaratnam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Shape memory alloys (SMAs) are special materials with a substantial potential for various structural engineering applications. The novelty of such materials lies in their ability to undergo large deformations and return to their un-deformed shape through stress removal or heating (shape-memory effect).
  Development of Novel Lightweight and Mutli-functional Architectured Graphene-based Nacre Nanolaminates (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/ELMARAKBI)
  Prof A Elmarakbi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is devoted to design, creation, and development of new multifunctional smart materials and improved performances that will underlie the technologies of the future.
  New generation of brake pads – design and tribological testing (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/ZABIEGAJ)
  Dr D Zabiegaj
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Road traffics and industrial processes that are well-known as exhaust emissions producers; however, released Particulate Matter (PM) originates also from a number of non-exhaust processes, brake and tyres, involving corrosion and mechanical abrasion.
  Flying Trains: The Potential to Harness Ground Effect Aerodynamics for Ultra-High Speed Trains (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/LEUNG)
  Dr P S (Ken) Leung, Prof R Dominy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ’Flying Train’ concept uses ground effect aerodynamics to provide a transport system with the convenience and capacity of rail but at near-flight velocities.
  Multi-scale patterning and nonlinear behaviours of smart materials (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/CHEN)
  Dr X Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Smart materials are materials exhibiting multi-physics coupling behaviours. So they can be actuated by various physical fields, such as stress field, thermal field, electric field and magnetic field.
  Economic and environmental impact analysis of wind turbine based on alternative materials (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/CHEUNG)
  Dr W Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cleaner environmental technologies offer various benefits such as reduced emissions, less waste and cost savings from minimum energy and resource requirements during production and operation.
  A combined framework of machine learning and full waveform inversion for electromagnetic sensing of infrastructure (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/WARREN)
  Dr C Warren
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electromagnetic sensing systems, such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), are critical tools to allow us to evaluate the condition of surface and sub-surface infrastructure.
