Additive manufacturing (AM) is a revolutionising process that allows the rapid production of three-dimensional components layer by layer in a single process directly from a computer aided design (CAD). The technology has been successfully used to make complex parts, such as medical implants, engine parts and aerospace components. Funded by Siemens AG, an exciting opportunity has become available for three PhD candidates to research the fundamental mechanisms involved in the additive manufacture of ceramic matrix composites for gas turbine applications.
