Project title: Active mechanical metamaterials and multi-functional composites
PhD Supervisor: Tanmoy Mukhopadhyay
Supervisory Team: Dr Tanmoy Mukhopadhyay, Dr Susmita Naskar
This project aims to develop active metamaterials and multi-functional composites for the next generation of aerospace structures and mechanical systems. Metamaterials are artificially engineered materials that have unique geometries and microstructures, giving rise to unprecedented effective physical properties. This project will focus on developing mechanical metamaterials computationally through active composite designs involving multi-material lattices along with additive manufacturing and testing.
This PhD studentship will involve a combination of computational analysis and experimental characterization of mechanical metamaterials, providing the students with complete and holistic training and a diverse research experience. The PhD candidate will participate in an exciting international research partnership with collaborators from various disciplines, countries, cultures, and backgrounds.
This project could be right for you if you enjoy solid mechanics and structures, have an inclination toward computational and analytical mechanics, and are also interested in carrying out physical experiments. Any experience with mechanical metamaterials and mechanics of composites would be beneficial. If you wish to discuss any further details of the project informally, please contact Dr Tanmoy Mukhopadhyay.
This is an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic first or upper second class graduate in aerospace/mechanical/civil engineering to build strong knowledge in structural and solid mechanics for developing artificially engineered multi-functional materials. The studentship will also give an opportunity of building valuable relationships with both academic and industrial collaborators at the international level
The studentship covers all UK or International (including EU) tuition fees
