Novel Refractory Development
Student: S Welch (EPSRC/ Rolls Royce) 2004-2008, EngD
MMCs by Pressure- Pressure-less infiltration.
Student: B Huchler (self Aalen University) 2003-2006/7, PhD
This project is being run at Aalen University with some analytical work being done here in Birmingham. Porous ceramic bodies (typically 60% by volume) are being impregnated with aluminium alloys. The project aims to develop understanding of the infiltration process and to develop defect control.
Rapid Shell Build
Student: M Thomas (EPSRC/School) 2004-2007/8, PhD
Rapid shell build has been developed as a result of a ROPA award. Whilst the process principles are now defined, detailed understanding of the process needs to be established. This studentship is undertaking some aspects of the work.
Multi-layer extrusion for Fuel Cells
Student: J Powell (EPSRC/School) 2004-2007/8, PhD
Co-extrusion offers potential for novel approaches to fuel cell manufacture. This project explores this concept with the aim of developing predictive design capability for fine scale continuous extrusion dies for use with ceramic pastes.
