Outputs

Community impact

In 2013/14 the University of Surrey generated more than £1.5 billion for the UK economy, with over £1.1 billion of that in the county of Surrey.

The University also supported almost 17,500 jobs. Of these, almost 13,000 jobs were in Surrey and over 10,000 were in the Borough of Guildford alone.

Studentships

Sudden cardiac death in human athletes – electrophysiological and molecular insights from the animal models

Funding information:
Funding will cover University tuition fees at the UK/EU rate for three years and a stipend for three years at RCUK levels (£15,000 per year).

What we will do

Student in a lab coat using a pipette

Our beneficiaries have expertise in chemical and process engineering, aerospace, civil engineering, materials science, fine and speciality chemicals, pharmaceutical engineering, food science, computational mechanics and software development, in addition to five partner organisations. We will run 15 individual research projects to address the experimental and modelling challenges in analysing thermomechanical behaviour of granular materials.

We will take a systematic approach to examine the effects of temperature on mechanical properties, micromechanics, flow, compaction and mechanical properties, to enhance our understanding of the thermal performance of granular materials and broaden their industrial applications. We will also develop robust heat generation and transfer models for granular materials and use in situ nano-computed tomography to understand the microscopic evolution of a granular material at high temperatures, and explore the application of granular materials in emerging areas, such as dry powder coating in aerospace applications and additive manufacturing.

Using granular materials

Two students sitting in front of a computer

Granular materials, such as soils, agricultural seeds, metallic and ceramic powders, and pharmaceutical powders, are common in nature and have many industrial applications. They possess unique physical properties and a complicated flow behaviour. We aim to improve our understanding of the thermomechanical behaviour of granular materials. In particular, we aim to answer the following research questions:

  1. How does temperature increase within granular materials without the application of external heating sources?
  2. How does temperature affect the physical properties of granular materials?
  3. How can the thermomechanical properties of granular materials be effectively utilised in various applications, e.g. additive manufacturing, powder coating, sintering and catalysis?
