About the Project
This project will explore the application of nanotechnology to conventional welding and joining processes as a method of improving the properties of the joints produced.
Currently, all quality assessment of dissimilar joints/welds is conducted using destructive testing techniques. Unfortunately, these techniques are time-consuming and costly. The proposed research will bridge the gaps in the existing knowledge on the dissimilar joining of ultra-high-strength materials and materials of complex chemical properties.
Applicants should also be aware that Additional Research Costs of £5,000 per annum are required (above Tuition Fees and Living Expenses) for consumables.
