Development of metal 3D printing for heat exchangers (PART-FUNDED/STIPEND ONLY)


Project Description

PART-FUNDED/STIPEND ONLY

Applications are invited from graduates with a first class, or upper second-class degree in an appropriate discipline such as, materials science and engineering, physics, aerospace, or mechanical engineering for a PhD project on the design, processing, and materials characterisation of 3D printed heat exchangers.

The next generation VHBR/UHBR turbofan engines development will place a significant demand on the aircraft and engine’s heat management system. With the current size and shape of Matrix Air Oil Heat Exchanger (MAOHE) technology, it is becoming difficult to locate them on ever more, space-constrained engines. A new manufacturing technology is required that increases compactness and allows conforming shaped units to be produced by exploiting novel design, manufacturing methods and materials.

The project will involve the use of advanced metallurgical characterisation techniques, including electron microscopy, X-ray micro-tomography, and mechanical testing, in addition to the state of the art facilities at the University of Birmingham. The student will be based in the advanced materials and processing laboratory, University of Birmingham.

PLEASE APPLY ONLY IF YOU HAVE MEANS TO COVER THE COURSE FEES FOR 3 YEARS.
The home/EU fees are £4,320 and the overseas fees are £20,610 for 2018-2019 academic year.

Funding Notes

PART-FUNDED/STIPEND ONLY
The position comes with a £14,777/year stipend for the PhD student. The student needs to arrange the studentship fees through personal funds or other alternative means.
