Four-year EngD scholarship with Airborne Composites UK Ltd: Digitalisation of composite manufacturing


Project Description

Faculty/School/Department:
Faculty of Engineering (University of Bristol)

Location:
Airborne Composites UK Ltd, Membury, Wiltshire

Salary/stipend:
£21,500 p.a.

Project Outline:

The context of this research is within the field of composite materials and manufacture, with focus on enabling process data capture and re-use in form of feedback to the manufacturing process, and also exploring the efficacy of digital technologies (AI / machine learning / digital twinning) in composite manufacturing.

The following aims will be targeted in this research:

• Digital modelling inclusive of process prediction and data analytics
• Enabling the connection of sensor data with the digital model
• Enabling a feedback loop from the digital model into the process quality control system
• Sensor integration
• Inline visual inspection
• Active process control using deep learning
• Predicting defect in composites using deep learning.

The project will aim to deliver understanding of the true effectiveness or limitations of digital technologies as well as methodologies for their effective deployment in composite manufacturing environment.
