Next-Generation Low-Carbon Cement Wasteforms for Safe Disposal of Radioactive Waste

In the UK, over 150,000m3 of radioactive waste (enough to fill 60 Olympic size swimming pools) has been produced to date. Most of this radioactive waste needs conditioning by encapsulating it in cement to prevent release to the biosphere. Read more

Corrosion of reinforcing steel embedded within low carbon cement concretes made without Portland cement

Corrosion of reinforcing steel in conventional Portland Cement (PC)-based concretes exposed in challenging environments is a common problem, leading to cracking and spalling and its repair is a big cost to the UK economy. Read more

Locking CO2 into cement: new perspectives from advanced spectroscopic techniques

EPSRC DTP studentship in Engineering. 3.5 years starting 1st October 2024, 1st January 2025 or 1st April 2025. Project Summary. Our aim is to improve carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) in the cement and concrete industry by introducing reactive carbonates to replace clinkers. Read more

CNT/cement nanocomposite materials for structural applications for buildings

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with remarkable mechanical and electrical properties have been used for enhancement of mechanical properties of polymer matrix materials but its capability for enhancement of cement based materials has not been widely explored yet. Read more

Enhancing PMMA Bone Cement Performance and Biocompatibility using Metal-Organic Frameworks

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full-time or 6 year part-time PhD project. The PhD will be based in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences and will be supervised by Dr Marta Roldo and Professor Paul Cox. Read more

Development of Graphene-enhanced Concrete for Real Life Construction Applications

Concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world with an annual consumption of over 10 billion cubic meters. Cement, which is the most carbon intensive constituent in concrete that contributes to about 80% of the total embodied carbon of concrete. Read more

Long Term Behaviour of Natural Fibre Reinforced Concrete (NFRC)

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Microbiology of Hip Arthroplasty Cements

  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
Replacement hip and knee arthroplasties are common surgeries, with 31,000 hip and 90,000 knee replacements performed in England in 2020-21. Read more

Use of Fungi as a Means of Producing Concrete-Like Construction Materials

Concrete is one of the World’s most ubiquitous materials. It has achieved this through its versatility, durability and low cost. However, the manufacture of a key ingredient - Portland cement – contributes 4% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Read more

Recycled carbon fibre-reinforced concrete

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more
