Featured PhD Scholarship

Warwick School of Engineering is seeking a PhD student interested in 'PhD Studentship in Stainless steel structures in fire: Behaviour, numerical modelling and design'.

This PhD project will focus on the behaviour and design of stainless steel structures in fire. Various instability phenomena encountered in stainless steel structural elements will be thoroughly explored. Advanced nonlinear numerical models able to replicate the behaviour of stainless steel structural members in the fire will be created by means of the finite element analysis software ABAQUS and validated against experimental results. Design methods for stainless steel elements in a fire, furnishing very accurate assessment of their behaviour at elevated temperatures, will be developed for the purpose of their future incorporation into European structural steel fire design code EN 1993-1-2.
