Hello everyone, I am a mechanical engineer working in an automotive company as a Finite element analysis and numerical simulations Engineer. I would like to do a PhD in either of them. But the problem is I am not able to find an already funded research project in those fields. So I have a few questions
1) I approached couple of universities near me and they sent me lists of researches they are doing. They are not completely related to the above topics but it’s part of it. Is it possible to focus only on the FEA or NS part of that research project and get a doctorate? I wanted to get some advice before I ask the universities, and come of as a stupid.
2) what are some resources you guys use to find funded PhD projects? I couldn’t find many projects on my google searches.
Any advices would be greatly appreciated!
I know several engineering PhD students using FEA for various applications including in automotive. Although a pure FEA PhD is rare and it usually done in conjunction with experimental validation for a specific project on topic such as sports engineering, skin modelling or implosion modelling. I would be patient and see if anything comes up in the new year, as a lot of funded PhDs come up in the January- March period.
