The project:

A collaborative PhD project between the University of Bristol and GKN Aerospace is available as follows:

Predicting the performance of sustainable composite materials in a range of manufacturing techniques.

This project would assess sustainable materials, such as bio and recyclates, through life cycle and economic analyses for suitability of use and performance variations. It will focus on fibre modulus, surface energetics for resin wet out, interfacial and shear strength to produce metrics to enable future material selection. 

The four-year Advanced Composites PhD programme is based in the EPSRC Centre of Doctoral Training in Composites Science, Engineering and Manufacturing. It comprises one-year of innovative taught components and a three-year research project (as specified above). The taught components will fast-track graduates with science and mathematics backgrounds to acquire core engineering skills, while engineering graduates will broaden their scientific knowledge before specialising in industrial application.

The three-year research project will be jointly supervised by the academic and industrial supervisors. It is an excellent opportunity to collaborate with a world leading research teams in composites, with links to the National Composites Centre.
