PhD projects

Mark Ward is currently working at improving materials and processes by applying mathematical modelling, electrical and electronic engineering and more general sensing and control techniques. Research topics include producing titanium, nickel and iron alloys by vacuum arc and electroslag remelting, linear friction and electron-beam welding of aerospace structures, and analysis of images and orientation maps. Dr Ward's further interests incorporate:

Understanding, monitoring and controlling plasma arc melting, vacuum arc remelting (VAR) and electroslag remelting (ESR)
Using process models and novel measurements to improve electron beam welding and linear friction welding of aerospace components
Producing high quality Ti, Ni and Fe alloys
Production of metal powders
