Unlocking Complex Resources through Lean Processing Scholarship <!-- Subtitle --> School of Mechanical Engineering

Updated: 2 months ago

Applications are invited for the following scholarship leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in the School of Mechanical Engineering.

The scholarship is supported by the Premier Research Industry Funds Research Consortia Program ‘Unlocking Complex Resources through Lean Processing”

Field of Study: Acoustic and vibration sensing in grinding circuits for mineral processing. The objective is to determine appropriate acoustic and vibration sensors that can be used to conduct real-time monitoring of the volumetric load in a grinding mill and a cyclone. This will involve numerical modelling and experimental testing. This technique would enable operators to select appropriate feed rates of processing equipment, thereby providing optimal throughput and prevent the clogging of processing equipment that causes downtime.

Eligibility: Applicants may be either domestic or International students and must be acceptable as candidates for a PhD degree at the University of Adelaide.

Stipend:  The scholarship will be for a period of 3 years from March 2019 and has a stipend of $27,596 per annum. It is likely to be tax exempt, subject to Taxation Office approval.
