  Odd metal clusterings and peculiar phases in nuclear extraction processes
  Prof A Masters
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At the end of a nuclear reaction, many countries seek to recover unspent uranium and plutonium from the spent fuel. The most common way to do this is to dissolve the spent fuel in nitric acid, add some oil and also a special ligand.
  Investigating hydride growth mechanisms in zirconium alloys
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr P Shanthraj, Prof M Preuss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Zirconium alloys are most commonly used as the fuel cladding material in nuclear reactors. Hydrogen uptake in these alloys occurs as a result of aqueous corrosion during service, and the absorbed hydrogen precipitate out of solution as hydrides once its solubility limit in the alloy is exceeded.

  Prof H Iacovides, Dr A Cioncolini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project addresses the kinematic and thermal behaviour of sprays of liquids into gases, with a particular focus on the dynamics of the type of pressurisers used to control the operating pressure in pressurised water nuclear power stations.
  Exploring the processes of nucleation and growth in the oxidation of zirconium alloy fuel rods
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr C Race
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pellets of uranium oxide fissile fuel in pressurised water reactors are contained within tubes of zirconium alloy - the fuel clad.
  Making the link between weld process and long term in-service performance: multi-scale modelling and characterisation for low alloy steel welds in advanced nuclear reactors
  Prof M C Smith, Dr J Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-value, low-volume, safety-critical metallic components in nuclear plants almost invariably contain welds. Welding is an aggressive process that causes microstructural changes in the weld and adjacent heat affected zone, develops residual stresses and structural distortion, and changes the material properties.
  Modelling of primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC) of nickel based alloys (NBAs) in nuclear (PWR) primary coolant
