Four-Year EngD Scholarship with the National Composites Centre: “In-Process Monitoring”

University of Bristol - Faculty of Engineering

Project Outline:

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.

Project start date: As soon as possible.

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.

Location: National Composites Centre, Bristol.

How to apply: If you are interested in applying for this EngD project please send your CV, covering letter and academic transcript to: idc-composites@bristol.ac.uk.
