University of Bristol: the Physics and Mechanics of Creep Cavity Nucleation and Sintering in Energy Materials
- Research Group: Interface Analysis Centre, School of Physics
- Stipend of up to £15,009 p.a. plus £1000 p.a. training support
The overall research initiative will consider the physics and mechanics of creep cavity nucleation and sintering that occurs in polycrystalline materials. The materials selected will have different compositions and microstructures. There are three universities participating in the overall programme - Open, Oxford and Bristol. The research described here will be carried out through a PhD studentship funded by the Electrical Power Research Institute (EPRI), Palo Alto, USA at the University of Bristol.
The researcher will be based within the Interface Analysis Centre, School of Physics, University of Bristol. S/he will also work closely with the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford (Professor Alan Cocks). In addition, there will be close collaboration with EPRI. EPRI will provide a series of laboratory- and service-exposed creep specimens on tempered martensitic steels of known pedigree.Full information
