This split university / industrial PhD project offers an exciting opportunity to pursue advanced research in partnership EDF Energy and the University of Manchester. The aim of the project is to advance the state of the art in graphite core inspection techniques and to help EDF Energy to deploy the best possible non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques for inspection of graphite moderator bricks within the UK’s fleet of advanced gas cooled reactors (AGRs). A particular focus of the research may be advanced signal and data processing methods using multi-frequency electromagnetic inspection. The successful candidate will join an established team of scientists working in this area, which a successful track record of research and technology transfer.
