A TWI Industrial Member company has requested a copy of an NSIRC MSc student’s dissertation, demonstrating the practical value of the research taking place at the postgraduate facility.
The Industrial Member, which operates in the construction and engineering sector, requested the dissertation from the NSIRC operations team as it believed the research findings inside could directly benefit its business.
The dissertation was written by former NSIRC MSc student Murat Tuncer, based on his research into the ‘Influence of Side Grooves on Fracture Toughness Specimens’.
Murat was one of 22 students in the 2014–15 MSc cohort, who in December 2015 became the first group of MSc students to graduate from NSIRC.
An electronic copy of the dissertation was provided to the TWI Member for their viewing earlier this month. The NSIRC operations team looks forward to the results and recommendations generated in Murat’s industry-led project being applied in practice.
