About the Project

Supervisor: Dr. D.J.J. Toal
Co-supervisor Prof. A.J. Keane

Project description

No mechanical component is ever as the designer intended either after manufacture or after time in service. This geometric uncertainty can cause considerable variations in performance and life from one component to another. As designers push the boundaries of what is possible with existing technologies understanding the implications of this uncertainty and managing it effectively becomes very important.

In the following project novel methods for the representation of geometric uncertainty within a commercial CAD environment will be explored. The ultimate aim of this will be to embed uncertainty within a CAD part and simplify its inclusion to such a degree that uncertainty is included as routinely as tolerances on a drawing.

This project is funded by Rolls-Royce plc as part of their support to the R-R University technology Centre for Computational Engineering at Southampton. In addition to the basic tax free student stipend of £15,141pa, R-R will provide a further tax free stipend increment of £9,000 pa and therefore in line with their graduate recruitment schemes. The stipend will rise in subsequent years. Funding for travel to international conferences will be available.
