Project Description

EPSRC Future Nuclear Energy Doctor Training Centre and UK Atomic Energy Authority co-found a PhD scholarship in the Novel Metal Forming Group.

We will provide a full studentship to Home/EU students to support their research activities leading to the award of a PhD degree. The potential student should expect to obtain 1st or minimum 2:1 in his/her 1st degree from Mechanical/Materials Engineering/Physics Department.

The research work will be focused on the feasibility study of superplastic forming and diffusion bonding of nickel-based superalloys, stainless steel for key future fusion reactor parts. The Department was the top-ranked Mechanical Engineering Department in the 2014 UK REF exercise. The Novel Metal Forming group is recognised as being at cutting-edge research in hot and warm forming technologies for lightweight components and structures, which covers a wide range of activities e.g. theory, innovative testing, materials and process modelling. The Group has made a significant contribution to the development of new forming technologies and novel materials modelling methods.
