3D-printable fibre-reinforced low-carbon concrete for additive construction

3D concrete printing (3DCP) can allow freeform construction without the use of expensive formwork, but the current progress is limited by the range of printable concretes and reinforcing methods. Read more

Development of low-cost ultra-high performance low-carbon concrete

According to the Portland Cement Association (PCA), ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) is ‘‘a high-strength, ductile material formulated by combining Portland cement, silica fume, quartz flour, fine silica sand, high range water reducer, water, and steel or organic fibres. Read more

Strain-hardening geopolymer composites for sustainable and durable construction

Fiber-reinforced strain-hardening cementitious composites (SHCC) are a unique class of fiber-reinforced concrete exhibiting a pseudo strain-hardening behavior in tension after first cracking, accompanied by multiple cracking up to relatively high strain levels. Read more

Enhancing Performance of Structural Materials for Nuclear Applications Through Optimising Grain Refinement in Forming and Heat Treatment

In this project, you will develop a predictive model of the material response to high temperature processing. You will need to develop skills for both forming and heat treatment simulation in addition to an in depth understanding of the physical metallurgy of steels for the nuclear sector. Read more

Automatic Digital Twin for Critical Nuclear Island Components Through Novel Machining Data Acquisition

In this project, you will work on a new technique to create digital twin data during machining. You will develop the technique further and work with multinational companies to apply it to critical components in the nuclear sector. Read more

PhD studentship in Partially-Filled Pipe Flow

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield. This PhD project will be supervised by Dr Melika Gul (Department of Mechanical Engineering), Prof Simon Tait (Department of Civil and Structural Engineering) and Dr Paul Dickenson (nuron Ltd).

Understanding Cement-Superplasticiser Interactions in Blended Portland Cement Wasteforms

In the UK, over 150,000m3 of radioactive waste (enough to fill 60 Olympic size swimming pools) has been produced to date. Most of this radioactive waste needs conditioning, by either encapsulating it in cement, or another method, to prevent release to the biosphere. Read more

Understanding Cement-Superplasticiser Interactions in Geopolymer Encapsulants for Safe Disposal of Radioactive Waste

In the UK, over 150,000m3 of radioactive waste (enough to fill 60 Olympic size swimming pools) has been produced to date. Most of this radioactive waste needs conditioning by encapsulating it in cement to prevent release to the biosphere. Read more

The Icing on the Doughnut: Exploring the flow properties of complex biomolecules

What if you wanted to really move the needle on health? For a start you’d have to recognise that telling the consumer to change their eating habits hasn’t really worked and it is unlikely it ever really will. Read more
