Assessing the integrity of safety critical components with complex loading history
You will be working as a member of a solid mechanics group at the University of Bristol, a worldrenowned research team in the field of Structural Integrity.During your studies you will be performing experiments such as multi-axial fracture and deep hole drilling at University of Bristol's state of the art mechanical testing and residual stress measurement laboratories.You will be expected to participate in experiments carried out at big national and international facilities such as Diamond Light Source, Didcot, and European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, Grenoble, France, to validate your laboratory measurements.You are expected to be highly computer literate and able to learn using software such as finite element to simulate your experiments.
This PhD is partly funded by National Structural Integrity Research Centre and as such you are expected to spend a significant amount of time at TWI facilities at Cambridge.The student will be required to start his /her research at University of Bristol before moving to TWI, Cambridge.You will have academic supervisors at the University of Bristol and an industrial supervisor, from TWI: Professor Isabel Hadley, Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Professor at the University of Bristol.
Good ability in experimental solid mechanics and a grasp of computer coding (e.g. Matlab) Ability and willingness to travel nationally and internationally. Willingness to conduct the research between the University of Bristol and TWI, Cambridge
