PhD studentship in Railway Aerodynamics: investigating the aerodynamic loading caused by high speed passenger and low speed freight trains
A three year PhD studentship is available for a student to work on an experimental project to investigate the aerodynamic loading caused by high speed passenger and low speed freight trains on trackside and station structures, and to assess the safety of passengers on platforms. This will involve the use of the recently refurbished and re-equipped moving model TRAIN Rig (http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/research/activity/railway/research/train-rig.aspx).
A studentship is available for a suitably qualified engineering or science student that will pay fees at the HEU level together with a maintenance award. Applicants should send a full C.V and a covering letter to Prof C Baker at email@example.com by18th August 2017.
HEU fees and maintenance award. Non-EU students will need to directly fund the difference between overseas and HEU fees (about £15000 per year for three years)
Deadline: August 18, 2017
