Professor Peter Flewitt has received an EPSRC grant conjoint with Professor John Bouchard (Open University) and Alan Cocks (Engineering Science, Oxford) to address Physics and mechanics of creep cavity nucleation and sintering in Energy Materials. This was a bid as a result of the Bristol - Oxford Nuclear Research Centre and also links with Professor SuJun Wu at Beihang University, China .
Galloway Award - Stacy Moore
PhD student Stacy Moore from the Interface Analysis Centre has been award the Galloway Award from the Institute of Corrosion for "outstanding research by a student in corrosion science or engineering".
Her research involves using High Speed-Atomic Force Microsopy (HS-AFM) to observe nanoscale corrosion initiation events. In particular, SCC initiation occurring on the surface of metals, primarily stainless steels, which are under stress and within corrosive conditions.
Superior Papers at Waste Management Symposium 2018
PhD students Dean Connor and Chiara Giroletti from the Interface Analysis Centre have received "Superior Paper” recognition for their research papers submitted at the Waste Management Symposium (WMS) 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona earlier this year.
