  Fire Behaviour of Self-Prestressed Concrete Slabs Reinforced with Carbon Fibre Rein- forced Polymer Tendons
  Dr L Bisby
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Novel precast concrete elements have been developed utilizing high-strength, self- consolidating concrete (fire resistant or expanding SCC) in which prestress is introduced by high-strength and modulus, lightweight, and non-corroding carbon fibre reinforced polymer tendons (UHM CFRP tendons).
  Various treatments of Crumb Tyre rubber to improve concrete properties
  Prof E Ganjian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main aim of this project is to study the effectiveness of surface pre-treatment by Ultraviolet (UV) light and Ultrasonic treatment as a replacement for the natural aggregate in concrete mixtures on the rubberised concrete properties.
  Development and performance improvement of structural concrete using reused aggregate
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Dr X Dai, Prof D Lam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Concrete is one of the most used construction materials in construction practice overall world. Aggregate is the main constituent material for concrete and it affects the concrete properties significantly.

  Dr S Spadea, Dr T Dyer
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to improve whole-life productivity and sustainability of the construction industry by defining new methods for the design and fabrication of durable concrete structures using naturally sourced fibrous materials.

  GFRPs in Concrete: Innovations Beyond FRP Bar Reinforcement
  Research Group: Infrastructure Division
  Dr M Achintha
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Mithila Achintha Paththini Marakkala (Infrastructure). Project description. Owing to the high strength properties and the excellent in-service and physical characteristics of Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) materials have potential application as reinforcement in concrete structures.
  Re-engineered seawater and desert sand towards sustainable concrete
  Dr E Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The candidate should have a first class or upper second class honours degree, or a master’s degree (or equivalent qualification) in Materials Science and Engineering, Civil Engineering, or a related field.
  Railway stray current induced corrosion in reinforced concrete linings
  Dr K Tang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Railway electrification represents an important carbon strategy in the UK. It is estimated that an electric train consumes at least 20% less power (per passenger per mile) compared to a diesel-powered train.
  Development and optimisation of novel pultruded Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) cellular–concrete hybrid beam
  Prof E Ganjian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to investigate the structural performance/behaviour of new pultruded FRP cellular ‘PolyCell’ – concrete hybrid beams.
  Use of polymer concrete as a lining material for small diameter tunnels installed using Microtunnelling Machines
  Dr A Royal, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trenchless technologies are used to install buried infrastructure without the need for open cut excavations. One such technique is microtunnelling; this uses microtunnelling machines to excavate the bore whilst the lining is traditionally installed via pipe jacking or auto-erecting segmental systems.
  Geopolymer reinforced concrete structural element
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof A Ashour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geopolymers is an alkali-activated amorphous aluminosilicious cementitious material. Common aluminosilicate material used for producing geopolymer is fly ash and slag, both industrial by products.
  Towards Enhancing the Design Life of Concrete Structures with Stainless Steel Reinforcement
  Dr S Afshan
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Sheida Afshan (Infrastructure). Project description. The aim of the project is to solve the problem of deterioration of concrete structures currently facing the Civil and Structural Engineering community with introduction of the use of stainless steel reinforcement.
  Utilising sensors for predicting the residual strength of corroded reinforced concrete beams
  Prof F O'Flaherty, Dr V Starinieri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Area. The project is structural engineering based and will investigate the influence of corrosion on reinforced concrete beams using sensors to automatically detect differences in the ability of the structural member to carry its design load.
  Modelling and mitigation of early-age cracking in reinforced concrete structures
  Dr K Tang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will investigate the potential of modelling the thermal behaviour of concrete structures at early ages due to cement hydration through finite element modelling.
