Novel Friction Pairs for Environmentally-friendly Automotive Brakes

Project Description

Your project will support the understanding of the tribology of novel friction pairs in automotive brakes. To do this, you will create methods to investigate the Third Body Layer (TBL) generation, composition and its effects on friction, wear, NVH and particle emissions. Thus an optimised development of brake pads for novel applications like electric and autonomous driving will be possible.

Joining the School of Mechanical Engineering, you will be working closely with the School’s two research institutes: The Institute of Functional Surfaces (IFS) and the Institute of Design, Robotics & Optimisation (iDRO) in strong collaboration with our industrial partners.

Funding Notes

3.5 years to include tuition fees (£4,400 for 2018/19), tax-free stipend (£14,777 for 2018/19), and research training and support grant. Eligibility is UK and those EU candidates who meet the UK 3 years residency requirement.
