TATA Steel’s Industrial iCASE Award is offering the Tata Steel Scholarship Program for UK or EU students pursuing PhD degree program in Mathematics, Physics, or Engineering at Swansea University. The scholarship covers all of the related expenses during the study. The next submission deadline is 1 August 2020.
Fire safety is a critical aspect of building design and all building materials and products are subject to tightly controlled standards. In common with all other reputable manufacturers, Tata Steel’s construction products are all supplied with a Euroclass classification that confirms their performance in reaction to fire tests. Data from these small-scale tests are used in product fire performance modelling but it is widely acknowledged that this approach has significant limitations when trying to assess the performance of a complete system, such as a whole building. Therefore, this research aims to investigate, via computer modelling, more realistic buildings and fire scenarios in order to gain a better understanding of how buildings perform during fire.
This scholarship covers the full cost of UK/EU tuition fees and an annual stipend of £20,000. There will be additional funds available for research expenses.
