  Design Optimisation of Functional Smart Structures
  Dr A Maheri, Dr P Dunning
Applications accepted all year round
Smart structures have a wide range of applications in aerospace, wind energy, automotive, bio-mechanics and robotics, to name a few.
  Enhancing the performance, condition, safety and reliability of offshore wind energy infrastructure systems using optimal design, inspections, structural health monitoring and structural control
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr P Dunning, Dr S Sriramula, Dr Amir Siddiq
Applications accepted all year round
Wind turbines are exposed to frequent structural damage increasing the cost of wind energy generation. To drive these costs down, this project will develop new automated methods for detection of structural damage to wind turbines by examining vibration responses measured by sensors attached to the structure.
  Marine risers: experimental damage detection, monitoring and numerical modelling using digital twins
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr D Van der A, Prof E Pavlovskaia, Dr Amir Siddiq
Applications accepted all year round
Marine risers are critical components of any offshore oil and gas production operations linking subsea field developments with production and drilling equipment atop fixed or floating facilities.
  Modelling of joining technologies for novel metal matrix composites for offshore applications
  Prof I Guz, Prof M Kashtalyan
Applications accepted all year round
Metal matrix composites (MMCs) present remarkable properties by combining the properties of the metal matrix and of ceramic reinforcement.
  Predicting mechanical properties of nanocomposites with brush-like reinforcement
  Prof I Guz, Prof M Kashtalyan
Applications accepted all year round
The project will focus on creating the multi-scale three-dimensional models for accurate analytical prediction of the effect of reinforcement with bristled nanowires on the overall performance of the composite material, leading to the optimal usage of very expensive nanomaterials.
  Secondary currents in rough-bed open-channel flows and their effects on hydraulic resistance
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round
Secondary currents in open-channel flows such as rivers and canals play a key role in transport of momentum, sediments, nutrients, and other substances.
  Topology optimisation for nonlinear aeroelasticity
  Dr P Dunning, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of the is project is to develop an efficient nonlinear aeroelastic topology optimisation method and apply it to design novel, high performing aeroelastic structures, such as wings and wind turbine blades.
  Very large scale motions (VLSM) in rough-bed open-channel flows and their effects on hydraulic resistance
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round
Turbulence in open-channel flows such as rivers and canals plays a key role in transport of momentum, sediments, nutrients, and other substances.
  Development of a Hybrid Prognostic Methodology and its Application on Predictive Maintenance of Water Infrastructure Assets
  Dr O Niculita, Dr B Alkali, Prof D McGlinchey
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Knowing when systems need to be maintained is of great importance to companies operating high-value assets. Further, to know ahead of time, with plenty of time to optimize the maintenance and cause the least amount of disruption to the operation, would be highly desirable.
  Material monitoring for process control in the roll forming process
  Dr V Janik, Prof R Dashwood
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
This PhD project is part of the Cotutelle arrangement between Coventry University, UK and Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia.
