Applications are invited for international awards at the University of Queensland in the Development of a Mechanical Tensioner for Wave Energy Harvesting. The project is related to the growth of cutting-edge composite structures for a new Wave Energy Converter (WEC).
This program will concentrate on growing a fundamental understanding of the resilience and fatigue characteristics of composite materials in the marine environment for a particular application in the WEC design. As part of the Ph.D., it will also be investigated how concepts developed for WECs can be employed in other marine applications such as the aquaculture industry.
The Ph.D. program will be embarked on in the School of Mechanical and Mining Engineering and the Centre for Advanced Materials Processing and Manufacturing (AMPAM). The program is part of the Blue Economy Cooperative Research Centre (BE-CRC). The applicant will work directly with the industry members as part of a bigger team. Primary supervision and project lead is carried out by Dr. Michael Heitzmann.
Working knowledge of composite materials, processes, and manufacturing with specific knowledge in testing and durability would be of benefit to someone working on this project.
