Personal profile


Dr. Abdul Khadar Syed obtained his undergraduation degree in Mechanical Engineering from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad, India in 2005 and Double MSc in Advanced Materials Science and Engineering from Lulea University of Technology, Sweden and Saarland University, Germany in 2008. In 2010 he joined The Open University, UK for his PhD study on Durability of Bonded Crack retarders for Aerospace and awarded a PhD in Aug-2014. During his PhD, he investigated the novel structural concept i.e. bonded crack retarders for life enhancements and improving airframe structural integrity and damage tolerance of the critical aircraft structures. The conclusions derived from his PhD will provide information for researchers and aircraft structural designers to improve the performance and life of critical aircraft structures and the possibilities of incorporating the bonded crack retarder concept in the initial design and fabrication stages. In November 2014 he joined Faculty of Engineering and computing, Coventry University as a Research Associate. Currently his research centres around the residual stress measurements, material performance of additively manufactured alloys and metal matrix composites.

Vision Statement

Materials science research is going to face dramatic challenges in the future due to rapidly changing technologies and increase in industrial demands. My research vision is to meet these challenges by the advancement of interdisciplinary research through understanding the relationship between processing, structure, property, and the performance of engineering materials. My current research focusses on the following areas:

•Structural integrity

•Residual stress measurements

•Material performance of additively manufactured alloys

•Fatigue and Fracture mechanics

•Mechanical properties and Materials characterisation

•Metal matrix composites
