PhD Studentship: Load and vibration attenuation of aerospace structures

Closing Date
Saturday, 30th April 2022

Supervisor: Dr Mohammadreza Amoozgar

Project description: Vibration in structures lead to fatigue damage of the components, human discomfort, noise generation and performance reduction. Therefore, it is necessary to keep the level of these unwanted vibrations down. There are several ways for reducing the vibration (passively or actively) that have been proposed in the literature such as active trailing edge flaps, optimising the geometry, mass and stiffness distribution of the structure, using vibration absorbers, isolators, etc. All these methods (and more) have their own advantages and disadvantages. The current project is trying to develop a new method to attenuate the aerospace structure vibration that has the potential to be more effective than the previous methods. 

The ideal student must have a very good background in structural dynamics and vibration with a high interest in modelling, simulation, and experimental works. 

The PhD position is available from 1st October 2022. This project will include the payment of tuition fees for Home Students, as well as a stipend equivalent to RCUK rates (currently at £15,609 p.a. tax free for 2021/22) awarded to the suitable candidate.
