ABOUT

The PhD will provide a great research opportunity to study innovative designs, simulations and experiments of large strain metamaterial skins with great dimensional stability for integration with morphing submarine structures.

Morphing technology continuously receives interest from world leading aerospace industries to address sustainability and mobility challenges. Morphing structures, as a biologically inspired design, have an intelligent ability of optimizing their shape in operation using distributed sensors and actuators. The radical continuous shape change attained by morphing technology enhances fluid flow effectiveness and could offer significant improvements in the performance of land vehicles or marine vessels, such as reduced fuel consumption and noise, as well as enhanced manoeuvring capabilities. However, the requirements for morphing structures are conflicting; the structure must be stiff to withstand the external loads, but flexible to enable shape changes, without a negative impact on the weight, complexity and reliability of the morphing systems.

This research project intends to create innovative lightweight mechanical metamaterials with sustained ZPR under large deformations. Large strain ZPR is very important as it leads to longer-life design through low critical stress, while bearing high strains under working loads. This eliminates undesired transverse deformations and curvatures for complex geometries and boundary conditions. This research will resolve these major problems of existing materials and structures for submarine morphing technology. The research plan contains three Work Packages (WPs), and is expected to publish at least one high quality journal paper and a conference presentation from each of the WPs:-

  • Design and Shape optimisations of the large strain Mechanical Metamaterials.
  • Experiments and Simulations of Mechanical Metamaterials.
  • Integration of Metamaterials with Morphing Submarine Structures and Proof of concept demonstration; (Importance is given to marine environment such as wave effects, hydrostatic pressure and sea water interaction.)

Cranfield as a specialist postgraduate university with world-class, large-scale research facilities, manages over £40M of new research income across 400 grants and contracts each year. In light of Research Power, CU is ranked 7th in the UK Research Excellence Framework 2021, where 88% of its research is classed as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. CU is ranked in the top ten UK universities for commercial research, consultancy and professional development. Cranfield is ranked 27 for Mechanical, Aeronautical & Manufacturing Engineering in the QS World Rankings 2021. CU provide a niche research in manufacturing for example large scale metal additive manufacturing and has excellent facilities such as the ultra-precision machining laboratory and UK’s national facility for large x-ray optics manufacture. Cranfield is at the forefront of aerospace technology as providing world-leading research in collaboration with its strategic partners such as: Airbus, Boing, BAE Systems, DSTL and Rolls-Royce. It hosts a variety of unique aerospace facilities such as: Airport, AIRC and DARTeC.

Dr Dayyani is a member of the ‘’Centre for Structures, Assembly and Intelligent Automation’’ led by Prof. Phil Webb (Airbus Chair in Aero-Structure Design). The centre is renowned for the design, manufacturing and experiment of large aerospace structures. Cranfield has well-equipped laboratories for material characterization, static and dynamic structural testing and crashworthiness. The structural integrity laboratory has a range of equipment to study the structural components and materials behaviour. The centre has extensive expertise in design, fracture and damage analysis, impact and structural stability of advanced lightweight structures and composite materials.

accommodation

The School of Water, Energy and Environment, the School of Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing, and the School of Management are located on the Cranfield Campus, as well as many industrial-scale facilities for research.
There are many facilities on Cranfield Campus, including: student accommodation options, two hotels with full accommodation and conference and banqueting facilities, sports and recreation facilities, and a private airport. Cranfield Campus sports facilities include several tennis courts sports pitches, playing fields, an aerobics stadium, and a fitness center.
Students admitted to a full-time course can apply for on-campus accommodation. They will also be able to find private housing off campus in nearby areas. Cranfield Campus has 1,466 single rooms, 75 studio apartments for couples, and 97 family homes including two-bedroom, three-bedroom, and four-bedroom houses. All dormitories have Wi-Fi internet connection. All students will benefit from Endsleigh insurance, which covers the risks that may occur while living in student accommodation.
Cranfield University provides many opportunities for students to participate in a various range of societies and clubs, such as the Musicians Society, Astronomical Society, and Basketball Club. The Cranfield Student Association is managed by a team of selected students. It is also supported by a small team of staff. Its purpose is to promote student welfare and to organize cultural, social, and sporting activities.
Cranfield has a wealthy collection of library resources and services to support students’ academic work. This collection has nearly 200 academic and leading commercial databases which provide access to in-depth application topics and current information related to the subject under study. It also has more than 22,000 e-journals, as well as core collections of reports, magazines, books, and a range of current awareness services.
Cranfield provides support, services and systems, whether industry-leading software and high-performance computing capabilities or network access. It offers a high-speed, wireless network to provide students with the opportunity to access a wealth of online services. Cranfield IT services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on and off campus, and gives students access anytime, anywhere.

After Graduation

Students will benefit from Cranfield Career Development Services, which have a variety of aspects and functions, from providing 1: 1 coaching to connecting with employers. Students will have access to some key resources before entering the university to prepare their resume for the recruitment season. Upon arrival they will be able to join workshops to create their own professional profile and start applying for vacancies. During the year, Cranfield organizes events, careers fairs, and client presentations to present job opportunities and networking, where students attend interviews and negotiate proposals.
From 1 July 2021, the British Government has launched a new route for international graduates to increase their employment opportunities in the UK. This route welcomes all international students who have successfully completed their course at Cranfield. This visa allows MSc graduates for two years and doctoral graduates for three years to work or search in any position or job they wish and it can be converted to a skilled work visa after finding a job in
