PhD topics and outlines

Characterisation of Metallic Lattice Cellular Structures Produced by Additive Manufacturing:     This project will investigate the design, fabrication and evaluation of various types of cellular structures using various cell types by Selective Laser Melting (SLM) additive manufacturing process including characterisation of their static and dynamic mechanical properties for selected engineering applications.

Development of Optimised Biodegradable Composite PLA Materials with Natural Fibre Reinforcement:     This project will investigate the design, fabrication and evaluation of various types of cellular structures using various cell types by Selective Laser Melting (SLM) additive manufacturing process including characterisation of their static and dynamic mechanical properties for selected engineering applications.

Dynamic behaviour of Shape Memory Alloys processed by Additive Manufacturing: Research will involve study of design and fabrication of various samples of Nickel-Titanium alloys with both solid and porous structures produced by the Selective Laser Melting (SLM) or Direct Metal Deposition (DMD) process. Dynamic behaviour of such components subjected to high strain rates under compressive deformation will be studied using the Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar apparatus.

Functionally Graded Tools and Dies by Direct Metal Deposition:     Research will involve study of design and fabrication of various samples of Nickel-Titanium alloys with both solid and porous structures produced by the Selective Laser Melting (SLM) or Direct Metal Deposition (DMD) process. Dynamic behaviour of such components subjected to high strain rates under compressive deformation will be studied using the Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar apparatus.

High Strain Rate Behaviour of Metals and Alloys processed by Additive Manufacturing Technologies: Project will involve behaviour of a range of engineering metals with solid and porous structures produced by the AM processes (Selective Laser Melting or Direct Metal Deposition). Dynamic behaviour of such components subjected to high strain rates under compressive deformation will be studied using the Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar (SHPB) apparatus.

Material Characterisation and Meltflow Behaviour in Fused Deposition Modelling Additive Manufacturing:     This project involves an extensive study of mechanical, dynamic mechanical and thermal properties of various FDM materials and an investigation of melt flow characteristics of the materials in the liquefier head to completely characterise the FDM process for developing new materials and new applications.
