PhD – Shedding new light on additive manufacturing for aerospace applications

Department: UCL Mechanical Engineering
Closing date: We will be continuously having informal discussions with interested candidates until this position is filled.

Abstract:
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a disruptive manufacturing technology and is already implemented in a number of aerospace applications. Funded via an EPSRC industrial CASE (iCASE) award, the successful applicant will join a dynamic group from UCL Mechanical Engineering based at the UK’s largest science campus, Harwell. Using the lastest synchrotron and neutron sources and unique in situ AM machines, you will image the AM process to address key fundamental and applied challenges facing the AM industry. The PhD project is jointly supervised by Prof. Peter Lee (UCL) and Dr Ben Saunders (Rolls-Royce plc.) and supported by Dr Alex Leung.

PhD – Understanding phase transformations during additive manufacturing

Department: UCL Mechanical Engineering
Closing date: We will be continuously having informal discussions with interested candidates until this position is filled.

Abstract:
Additive manufacturing (AM) is a key enabling technology that produces components with complex shapes directly from digital designs in materials from polymers to aerospace alloys, enabling unprecedented design freedom. Laser AM produces extreme thermal conditions that promises to allow entirely novel materials to be developed. However, our understanding of the impact of the rapid thermal transients created on the phases, microstructures (e.g. grains and defects), and residual stress states formed are limited.
