Additive Manufacture (sometimes referred to as 3D Printing) of metals is starting to become more widely accepted a technology for the production of critical structural components. There is also evidence that we can, through careful control of processing conditions, generate materials with site-specific properties e.g. controlling the magnetic behaviour to make the material paramagnetic or ferromagnetic on demand. In this PhD within the MAPP Future Manufacturing Hub we will seek to build on these observations and develop novel; routes for manufacture of functioning electrical motors – looking at methods for developing and controlling magnetic and other material properties directly in the AM process.

Additional Funding Information

Funding covers home tuition fees and annual maintenance payments of at least the Research Council minimum for eligible UK and EU applicants. EU nationals must have lived in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the programme to be eligible for a full award (fees and stipend).
