PhD Studentship in HS2 High Speed Rail - Track - Foundation interaction Modelling

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Sunday, 15 April, 2018

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship from UK/EU candidates to carry out research on the Track-Foundation Interaction with application to HS2. It is expected that train speeds will reach 400 kmph or above and this project will investigate the influence of Rayleigh waves on the Track-Foundation soil interaction. New high speed train testing facilities are being currently developed at the Schofield Centre. The Cambridge Geotechnical Group has an international reputation for world class research.

PhD Studentship in Predicting friction-induced vibration

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Thursday, 15 March, 2018

The presence of frictional interfaces in mechanical systems is one of the key limiting factors in modelling structural dynamics. It is possible to develop an advanced numerical model of structures with arbitrarily complicated geometry and material properties, but introduce a friction interface and prediction accuracy drops off rapidly. Sometimes friction is the source of vibration, for example in vehicle brake squeal or stringed musical instruments, and in these cases a good representation of friction is essential.
