PhD studentship – Fatigue lives of engineering components subjected to combined mechanical and thermal loading



Faculty of Engineering

SS1223

The project: This research aims to develop a deeper understanding of the influence of combined loading on fatigue crack initiation and growth of engineering components when in a Nuclear environment. An experimentally validated model will be developed so it provides a means of transferring laboratory data to practical engineering components. 

Candidate requirements: A first or upper second-class degree in engineering, mathematics, science or related discipline. Due to funding restrictions, this studentship is open to UK nationals only.

Funding: Tuition fees plus a tax-free stipend of £13,726, funded by Rolls-Royce.

How to apply: Please make an online application for this project at the apply button below. Please select Mechanical Engineering (PhD) on the Programme Choice page and enter details of the studentship when prompted in the Funding and Research Details sections of the form.

Contacts: Prof DJ Smith ([email protected]) and Prof CE Truman ([email protected])

Deadline for applications: 31/12/13
