Project Description

The ability to measure manufacturing process parameters during composite manufacturing is an important component to quantifying manufacturing processes, validating process modelling capability and generating the inputs required for automated in-process adaptation, machine learning, and development of digital twins.

This project will:
• Identify the key process parameters for a composite manufacturing technique and the sensing capability available to quantify them in-process
• Simulate using multi-physics the performance of the sensor to ensure the data generated is valuable for the identified use
• Design and manufacture a tooling system that incorporates the sensors to demonstrate and validate their use

PLEASE NOTE: Applications are considered as soon as they are received, and the position will be allocated as soon as a suitable candidate is found.

Project start date: As soon as possible

Candidate requirements:
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROJECT IS NOT AVAILABLE TO INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS DUE TO TIER 4 VISA REQUIREMENTS.
An upper second-class degree (or equivalent qualification) in an appropriate discipline.
