  Embedded Carbon Fibre Transition Zones for Metal-Composite Hybrid Joints
  Dr C Worrall, Dr J Stein
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Driven by European Regulations (No. 443/2009) and the USA Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standard, automotive and aerospace companies are increasingly looking to use carbon fibre composites to achieve up to 50% weight savings over metallic alternatives.
  A novel technique for handling missing data for structural health monitoring of HIC / SOHIC
  Dr S Soua, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC) / Stress Oriented Hydrogen Induced Cracking (SOHIC) is the process of hydrogen forming metals becoming brittle as a result of the diffusion mechanisms of hydrogen into the microstructure of steel structures.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Recycling of thermoset resins via the development of a solvent trigger de-curing system.
  Dr G Durand, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Most composites use thermosetting resins (>50%), there is currently no commercial recycling process for thermoset composites.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Development of methods to evaluate dynamic fracture toughness of metallic materials at very high loading rates under conditions of limited plastic deformation
  Dr Y Janin, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Many important industrial applications require that dynamic fracture toughness of materials is quantified and the accuracy of safety assessments depends on this material property.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) – Composite casing with variable thermal conductivity for passive cooling of battery elements
  Dr M Kazilas, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. The need for clean electric powered vehicles (EVs) will lead to a growth of battery elements both in size and power output.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Protection of offshore wind turbines using low-cost, damage tolerant, sacrificial coatings (ProCoat)
  Dr S Paul, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Mitigating corrosion of offshore structures requires the use of cathodic protection often in conjunction with dielectric coatings.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) Local detection of hydrogen in steels using neutron diffraction imaging
  Dr K Govender, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Course Description. Background. Steels used in offshore flowlines, pipelines and risers are susceptible to corrosion fatigue in the presence of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and moisture present in oil and gas production fluids.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Structural Longevity for advanced marine vehicles in extreme environments
  Dr S Soua, Mr P Jamshidi, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. To ensure safety of any engineering system so that human life is protected and the environment is safe it is logical to be able to define when it is operating outside of its design condition.
  Advanced Spectral Analysis and Data Sonification in Neuroscience: investigating novel methods of studying and analysing EEG
  Dr D Vicinanza, Dr F Panin
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. The research will be conducted within the Sound and Game Engineering (SAGE) Research Group in collaboration with the Faculty of Medical Science.
