Thesis Topic/Title
Artificial Intelligence in Advanced Composite Manufacturing


The proposed PhD project aims to develop a novel adaptive automated composite manufacturing process, in the light of Industry 4.0 – the smart factory revolution. The project will integrate smart interface pressure sensors and advanced computing, including process modelling, stochastic methods, and optimisation algorithms. Interfacing with a lab scale mould tool, the study will establish a cyber-physical framework that will enable the investigation of the stochastic nature and optimisation of liquid composite moulding. The project will focus on two manufacturing stages for continuous (in situ) processing: reinforcement forming and liquid resin infusion. The study will benchmark the proposed process with aerospace standards, to achieve minimum process-induced defects.
