PhD Studentship Towards Enhancing The Design Life of Concrete Structures with Stainless Steel Reinforcement

University of Southampton, UK is inviting applicants to apply for a PhD position in structural engineering. The funding allows successful candidate to work for 5 years. Applicants should apply before August 31, 2020.

The aim of the project is to solve the problem of deterioration of concrete structures currently facing the Civil and Structural Engineering community with introduction of the use of stainless steel reinforcement. You will investigate the nonlinear response of stainless steel reinforced concrete structural components through a combined experimental, analytical and numerical modelling approaches. You will use the obtained results to develop validated structural design rules making a major impact in the development of the future structural design standards.

A very good undergraduate degree (at least a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent).

:applications should be received no later than 31 August 2020 for standard admissions, but later applications may be considered depending on the funds remaining in place.

Funding: full tuition fees for EU/UK students plus for UK students, an enhanced stipend of 15,009 tax-free per annum for up to 3.5 years.

Applications should be made online here selecting "PhD Eng & Env (Full time)" as the programme. Please enter Sheida Afshan under the proposed supervisor.
