  Long-term behaviour of nuclear wasteforms under geological disposal conditions
  Dr AH Mir
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geological disposal of nuclear waste is an internationally accepted methodology for nuclear waste management and pursued by the United Kingdom.
  NSIRC 175 PhD Studentship – Prediction of fatigue limit of additive manufactured materials
  Dr M Dore, Dr Y Zhang, Ms H Stedman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In fatigue design, it is important to know the fatigue limit of the material to be used in order to avoid fatigue failure.
  Understanding Radiation Damage in Zircaloy-4 for Current and Future Nuclear Applications
  Dr J Hinks
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiation-induced defects can have significant effects on the performance of materials and hence need to be accurately quantified and understood for the continued use and future development of nuclear reactor technologies.
  Computational fluid dynamics modelling of sprays of liquids into gases and vapours
  Prof H Iacovides, Dr A Cioncolini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project addresses the kinematic and thermal behaviour of sprays of liquids into gases, with a particular focus on the dynamics of the type of pressurisers used to control the operating pressure in pressurised water nuclear power stations.
  Making the link between weld process and long term in-service performance: multi-scale modelling and characterisation for low alloy steel welds in advanced nuclear reactors
  Prof M C Smith, Dr J Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-value, low-volume, safety-critical metallic components in nuclear plants almost invariably contain welds. Welding is an aggressive process that causes microstructural changes in the weld and adjacent heat affected zone, develops residual stresses and structural distortion, and changes the material properties.
  Modelling of primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC) of nickel based alloys (NBAs) in nuclear (PWR) primary coolant
  Prof M C Smith, Dr A Jivkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nickel based alloy (NBA) materials and their associated weld metals are of interest to new build and advanced nuclear reactors due to their superior structural performance when compared with traditional steel materials.
  Size effects in pure and alloyed metals under dynamic loading
  Dr B. Gurrutxaga-Lerma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strength of metals and metallic alloys is usually thought to be independent of the system’s geometry and dimensions. However, at the micron scale this ceases to be true.
  Experimental and Theoretical Understanding of Rhenium Precipitation in Tungsten for Nuclear Fusion Applications
  Dr J Hinks, Dr M Molinari
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nuclear fusion promises unlimited supplies of low-carbon energy but major technological challenges must be overcome before this becomes a reality.
