Warwick Manufacturing Group - PhD Studentship

Title: Through Process Modelling from Casting to Mechanical Properties for Line Pipe Steels

Industrial Sponsor: Tata Steel Europe

Supervisors: Professor Claire Davis and Dr Martin Strangwood

Eligibility: Applicants must be UK residents and should have a 1st or 2.1 degree in a relevant science or engineering subject, such as materials, physics, mechanical engineering, or maths.

Value: EPSRC Industrial Case. Stipend of circa £17,000 per annum, length of Award : 4 years

Deadline: 31st March 2016. (Note: applications will be considered when they are received and a suitable candidate may be appointed before the application deadline date).

This project will set up a physical 3D integrated through process model linking process variables to final product microstructure, specifically grain size distributions and hence toughness properties, in hot rolled line pipe grades. The work will involve model development, so candidates should have a strong mathematical background. Opportunities for experiemental verification using the suite of facilities at WMG (casting, reheating and deformation) will be included.
