Informal enquiries about this project are welcome and may be directed to Dr Lavery at the email address above or by telephone: +44 (0)1792 606873.
Swansea University’s College of Engineering, in association with the National Research Network in Advanced Engineering and Materials (AEM), invites applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship.
This exciting new PhD opportunity combines fundamental materials science, thermo-mechanical characterisation, design via numerical modelling and additive manufacture (or 3D printing) of complex geometrical structures.
The aim of the project is to design new smart components for high precision structural casings for lenses, where accurate dimensional tolerances over a range of temperatures are paramount. These products require multiple functionalities. They must be lightweight, stiff and robust. Most critically, they also need to have tailored coefficients of thermal expansion (CTE), perhaps negative CTEs (multi-materials) and/or negative Poisson’s ratios using auxetic lattices. Furthermore, these properties may need to be graded throughout the component structure.
This project addresses a real industrial challenge and exploits existing facilities and expertise within the College of Engineering at Swansea such as:
- new materials characterisation facilities (MACH1 labs)
- modern Additive Manufacturing capabilities
- numerical modelling expertise
