  The use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Building Information modelling (BIM) to assess the energy performance of buildings
  Prof K Jones, Prof H Shirvani
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Built Environment Research Group, Engineering Analysis Simulation and Tribology Research Group.
  Low energy domestic buildings: the impact of mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR) systems
  Assoc Prof E A Essah, Dr M Shahrestani, Dr S Smith
Applications accepted all year round
To date the majority of studies using low energy buildings for experimental measurements have looked at the buildings energy conservation and the reduction of energy use.
  Prediction of the collapse of high rise buildings in the event of extreme fires by the means of high-fidelity CFD-FEM tools
  Dr M Jangi
Applications accepted all year round
Extreme fire events such as those in World Trade Centre in 2001 and the Grenfell Tower in London caused loss of lots of life and resources and distress in national and international scales.
  Understanding Unregulated Energy (usage) in University Buildings
  Dr S Harper
Applications accepted all year round
Rising energy costs and stretching national and local targets make the prediction and understanding of energy use (and therefore carbon emissions) essential.
  Simulation of External Fire Spread Mechanisms in High Rise Buildings - Ref: WMUF2018
  Prof W Malalasekera
Applications accepted all year round
Very recently the UK has seen one of the most disastrous fires in history, the Grenfell Tower fire, in London. The loss of life and immense suffering caused by this fire is inconceivable.
  High Resolution Methods for Assessment of Heat Loss from Plants and Arrays of Buildings
  Dr M Lappa
Applications accepted all year round
With this project, we propose an investigation into a variety of dynamics and effects produced by the interaction of an array of buildings (or a set of heat sources in an industrial plant or in a power plant) with a cross flow (horizontal wind).
  SCENARIO: Flow processes and turbulent exchange in urban canopies
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr J Barlow, Dr O Coceal
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  Health and Well-being Requirements within Green Buildings (Advert Reference: SF18-1/ABE/ALWAN)
  Dr Z Alwan
Applications accepted all year round
Achieving sustainable and green certified buildings, has been a highly discussed topic with significant growth and interest among the AEC industry (Architecture, Construction and Engineering) industry in the last decade.
  Robustness of Large Timber Buildings - investigating the capacity of timber connections to accommodate large deflections and rotations
  Dr T Reynolds
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
Over the past decade, timber has been used in the construction of larger and taller buildings than ever before. A major reason for this is the development of engineered wood products, which use strips of wood cut and glued together to make large, reliable structural elements.
  Development and modelling of innovative devices for the seismic protection of non-structural components in buildings
  Dr E Tubaldi
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
The aim of the project is to investigate innovative techniques for protecting non-structural components from earthquakes while enhancing the seismic performance of buildings.
