Universal Protein Monitoring Platform Based on Smart Holographic Sensor

This Sheffield-Singapore partnership aims at developing a universal protein monitoring platform to serve a wide range of industries (pharma, food, chemical) and to catapult protein R&D. Read more

Digital Twins in Cyber Security Analysis of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (DTCS-CAV)

Connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology plays a significant role in the exciting transportation revolution today in the UK, offering road safety, high efficiency, less emission and a better user experience. Read more

Sustainable car design using Bio-composite materials

Project introduction. The production and usage of today’s modern cars is a major contributor to global CO2 emissions. Although technology has moved a lot, the main processes to mass produce a car, have remained the same namely; injection moulding, stamping and casting. Read more

Intelligent sorting for urban mining to upcycle post-consumer scrap (I-Case) PhD

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship in the area of sustainable manufacturing and materials and more specifically in intelligent sorting to upcycle post-consumer metal scrap, within the . Read more

PhD in Development of an Advanced Microstructural Model for Strip Steel Phase Transformation Behaviour using Sensor Signal Feedback

Can we characterise a steels microstructure, in real-time during industrial processing non-destructively (i.e. without the need to section and use microscopy) and use this information within microstructural development models? This will be the objective for the successful PhD candidate. Read more

Peer-sourcing AI agents for future network autonomy

All connected services across emergent edge-computing devices will run directly or indirectly from the future 6G wireless ecosystems (e.g., unmanned automotive/ship, digital twins, extended reality, etc.) In 2025, the 5G will cover more than 50% of total wireless media revenue and this grows up to about 80% in 2028.

Development of experimental and simulation capability for the analysis of thrust air foil bearing systems, including thermal studies

Oil-free turbomachinery (OFT) is an emerging technology defined as high speed rotating machinery operating without oil lubrication, relying instead on “air foil” bearings (AFBs, also known as gas foil bearings or foil air bearings). OFT research is motivated by technological and environmental benefits for diverse applications e.g. Read more

Robotic and Cyber-Physical Materials

Robotic or Cyber-Physical materials use embedded sensing, actuation and control to realise novel and improved performance over conventional or passive materials [1]. Read more

Modelling of machining induced damage in Additively Manufactured aerospace parts

Additive Manufacturing techniques have attracted many attentions in the aerospace and automotive industries. This is due to the provided flexibility to generate complex geometrical features in the manufactured components. Read more

Alkali Metal Halide Supported Alkali Metals as Gas Purification Agents

Gas purification gives access to gas feedstocks for uses such as industrial processes, transportation fuels, and cryogenics. Perhaps of greater daily impact is the importance of gas purification in the remediation of waste gases from e.g., internal combustion or semiconductor manufacture. Read more

Welding and joining of advanced dissimilar lightweight alloys

  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
The automotive industry’s interest in the use of lightweight materials has significantly increased in recent years due to an enhanced demand for fuel efficiency and clean green technologies that improve environmental conditions. Read more
