Exceptional properties by design - NiTi vision
This PhD project aims to investigate the mechanisms of exceptionally large elastic strains of nanowires in a phase transforming metallic matrix and to elucidate the characteristics and the underlying principles of strain coupling effect between the phase transforming matrix and the elastic nanowires. Atomistic approach will be used to model the material behaviour.
Applicants must have a Bachelor degree with first class honours in mechanical engineering, materials science or related fields. A sound understanding of fundamental principles of solid mechanics and materials engineering is essential. Applicants with Master degrees with related research experiences and publications are preferred. Knowledge in atomistic modelling (i.e. molecular dynamics and DFT) is an advantage.
Scholarship is available. Interested applicants should email their CV with any publications listed and contact details for 2 academic referees.
