We have 20 air transport PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Environmental sustainability challenges for the air transport industry

Aviation may be economically and socially sustainable but faces real environmental challenges. Globally, emissions from air travel need to be addressed in line with climate change advice from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Read more

Space-based constraints on UK ammonia emissions and air quality impacts

We are offering an exciting PhD opportunity, in the School of Earth and Environment, to undertake novel research targeting one of the major air quality challenges facing the UK – the ammonia problem! Ammonia (NH3) is emitted primarily from diffuse agricultural sources and difficult to quantify for legislative purposes. Read more

AI to the rescue of climate change, modelling air quality for cleaner urban planning

  Research Group: Computing, Informatics and Applications Research Group
Research Group. Computing, Informatics and Applications Research Group. Proposed supervisory team. Dr Lakshmi Babu Saheer. Dr Javad Zarrin. Read more

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for Urban Air Quality Simulation and Management

This research project offers an exciting opportunity for individuals passionate about addressing the critical issue of urban air quality through cutting-edge computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques. Read more

Development of improved and targeted quantification of ammonia emissions

Introduction. Ammonia (NH. 3. ) has an ever-growing influence on air pollution in the UK and worldwide with numerous considerable impacts such as the formation of secondary particles (now the dominant contribution), nitrogen deposition and eutrophication. Read more

Individual decisions for transport network efficiency and sustainability

The University of Sheffield invites applications from outstanding candidates for this PhD scholarship opportunity. The project is looking at understanding the interplay of selfish routing, social norms and the availability of transport modes for the development of sustainable mobility at urban and regional scale. Read more

Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows

Supervisory Team.   Dr Christina Vanderwel. Project description. Join our world-leading experimental fluid mechanics research group with this PhD studentship studying Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows. Read more

Separation and characterisation of wear flakes generated in rail-wheel interactions.

This project provides a new research activity within rail research at The University of Sheffield, and the resulting techniques will provide a method which can be utilised to drive forward other projects within the group, relating to wear mechanisms and material development. Read more

In-situ Measurement and Modelling of Crevice Corrosion Kinetics in Stainless Steel

Crevice corrosion involves the breakdown of the protective passive oxide layer on stainless steels, leading to unprotected metal corroding at rapid rates due to the formation of electrical cells coupling the active corroding areas to the oxide covered, or passive areas. Read more

Using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for Mapping Hydromorphology and Hydraulic Habitat

Hydromorphology is synonymous with physical habitat in rivers and describes the combination of the morphological and hydrological / hydraulic components of river channels. Read more

Numerical models for a new combustion era

Hydrogen will be, among the synthetic fuels, the preferable energy carrier able to address the spatial and temporal separation between energy production (renewable source) and consumption. Read more
