EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Through-life Engineering Services
(hosted by Cranfield University and Durham University).
The £10.5 million EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Through-life Engineering Services will provide world-class capability in the UK to enable industry to deliver high value products with outstanding availability, predictability and reliability with the lowest life cycle cost. The core partners include Rolls-Royce plc, BAE Systems, MoD and Bombardier Transport. In addition, the Centre is also supported by seven industry partners and six Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTNs) and trade organisations.
Cranfield University is seeking a highly motivated graduate to undertake this exciting research project. The PhD researcher will study the history and the through life use (as used) perspective of mechanical components and the impact of use on the type and extent of degradation.
The study will identify the information required to represent the use and develop accelerated testing of the components to simulate the ‘as used’ scenarios. It is observed that wear, cracking, fatigue and corrosion are the top degradation mechanisms for the aerospace and similar components.
This project will study the ‘as used’ perspective of mechanical components and the impact of use on the type and extent of degradation. The project will identify the information required to represent this in-service use and develop accelerated testing regimes of the components to simulate the ‘as used’ scenarios. The research will fuse the ‘as-used’ data about the components with ‘as-maintained’ data and integrate with the degradation analysis results.
The study will develop an information model to manage the service information for feedback to design and manufacturing. The model will be implemented as a prototype software system for validation.
The successful candidate will be based at either Cranfield University and will also spend some time in industrial sponsor sites as and when needed.
