PhD Studentship at University of Cambridge
The lifetime extension of existing highway and building reinforced concrete infrastructure is a priority for economic prosperity and sustainability. This project will examine the use of fibre reinforced polymers (FRPs) for the shear strengthening of slab-on-beam reinforced concrete structures typically used in large bridges or buildings.
The mechanics of shear failures in unstrengthened, and strengthened, reinforced concrete structures are complex. An innovative experimental investigation of local behaviour will initially be undertaken using prototype specimens. The results` implications will be used to investigate the overall behaviour of T-beams of different depths, with both testing and analytical modelling of unstrengthened and strengthened beams. The performance of practical slab-on-beam structures, and the impact of strengthening interventions to extend service life, will then be assessed.
Postgraduate Scholarship in Structural Chemistry at University of Canterbury
Applications are invited for a three-year PhD scholarship in structural chemistry to work under the supervision of Dr. Sarah Masters. The position is available to start on 1st January 2012 or as soon as possible thereafter. The group employs the technique of gas electron diffraction (GED) to study molecular structure in the gas phase, with current focus in the novel area of structure determination of short-lived species. The GED apparatus has been modified to use, where appropriate, very high temperature inlet systems to generate transient species in situ. This project will continue the development of new methods for species generation, concentrating on photolysis methods.
Available from: 1st January 2012
