Nanocomposites for Additive Manufacturing, Material Science and Engineering – PhD (Funded)


Project Description

Project Description:

Multifunctionality in manufactured parts is becoming a key requirement sought after by many industries. The project is looking to develop new bespoke lightweight multifunctional powder materials that can be 3D printed using powder bed fusion technology. The programme of work is combining nano-particles of different properties and aspect ratios with polymeric powders already established in the AM industry (e.g. PA12, PA11, PAEK). This study is looking to find new and cost effective methods of fabrication of nanocomposite powders. Existing concepts created in the Centre for ALM will be explored further and new ideas will be developed. In addition, optimisation of the new nanocomposite powders, investigation of properties of laser sintered nanocomposites parts, and nano-safety of nanocomposite powders across the entire process chain will be considered.

Funding Notes

The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, in partnership with the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence as soon as possible. For eligible students, the studentship will cover UK/EU tuition fees plus an annual tax-free stipend of at least £15,009 for 3.5 years full-time, or pro rata for part-time study.
