  New nano-indentation test methods for safer nuclear structural health monitoring
  Prof N Jennett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A collaboration between industry and academia to develop new nano-indentation based testing methods to improve safety of sample transport and testing by radically reducing the volume of radioactive material, for safer structural health monitoring and life extension of nuclear plant.
  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.
  Low-frequency Vibration of Sandwich Composites
  Dr M Azarpeyvand
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of development of advanced non-destructive evaluation (NDE) techniques leading to the award of an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) degree.
  Development of novel coolant chemistry for use in dynamic reactor systems
  Dr F Scenini, Dr M Curioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The performance of nuclear power plants, including pressurised water reactors (PWRs), can be affected by the formation of corrosion deposit.
  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.
  Viability of novel processing routes to current and advanced nuclear materials
  Prof T Abram, Dr R Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nuclear power accounts for 20% of UK energy production, making it a critical energy source for the development of society and economy.
  Thermofluid optimisation of AM high heat flux components for fusion
  Mr I Maskery
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

3.5-year PhD studentship, Centre for Additive Manufacturing, University of Nottingham. Supported by the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA).
  PhD Studentship: Monitoring the Performance of Heavy Machine Components Using Novel Sensing Systems
  Research Group: nCATS
  Prof R J K Wood
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is in the area of monitoring the performance of components in heavy machines using novel sensing systems (electrostatic sensor arrays ESA) to gain insight into contact degradation and using correlative surface science as validation.
  Automated Robotic In-Process Inspection of Metal 3D Printed & Welded Components
  Dr C Macleod, Prof S.G. Pierce
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traditionally 3D printing and welding of manufactured components and quality control inspection of such joints are distinctly separate processes in the supply chain, which ultimately limits productivity, throughput and increases re-work.
