Airbus Defence and Space GmbH (EADS) is a division of Airbus, a global leader in aerospace, defence and related services. They generate revenues of €2.2 billion and employ a workforce of about 9,100. 

Airbus Central R&T (ACRT) is the corporate research centre of Airbus with operations in France, Germany, Spain, UK, Singapore and Russia. Its overall workforce is more than 7,000 researchers. The ACRT site in Munich, belongs legally to Airbus Defence and Space and employs about 150 people in research and innovation.

Within ACRT, the Materials X department provides research and development facilities for advanced materials and new process technologies from elementary parts to optimised hybrid structures, in an integrated network within Airbus and in close co-operation with suppliers, universities and other research institutes. Within this team the necessary competencies for development and evaluation of protective coatings is available with laboratories for environmental simulation and coating deposition facilities.

BASF, a world’s leading chemical company, has a long tradition in cooperative research and training, which they consider to be crucial for their success. The Process Engineering Department, with about 130 engineers and 120 technicians, covers all particle technology unit operations in the chemical industry as well as CFD and DEM simulations. Numerous PhD students are being co-supervised in cooperation with universities across Europe.

The Centre Internacional de Mètodes Numèrics a l’Enginyeria (CIMNE) is a research organisation in Barcelona, Spain, which was created in 1987 as a consortium between the Catalan Government and the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC). It is an autonomous RTD centre focusing in promoting and fostering advances in the development and application of numerical methods and computational techniques for the solution of engineering problems in an international context.

They employ over 200 scientists and engineers from different technical fields and nationalities. In 2005, they started their international expansion and since then have created the following international branches:

  • CIMNE Latinoamerica
  • CIMNE USA.

Their headquarters are located at the heart of the UPC in Barcelona. They also have premises at different buildings in several campuses of the UPC and have offices in Madrid, Terrassa and Ibiza.

Studentships

Medical imaging standardisation for large scale studies

Funding information:
A stipend of £18,285 for 21/22, which will increase each year in line with the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) rate, plus Home/EU-rate fee allowance of £4,407 (with automatic increase to UKRI rate each year). The studentship is offered for 4 years.

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?
