  Fluid mechanics of polymer melt filtration
  Dr M Wilson
Application Deadline: 2 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics is now recruiting to this fantastic PhD opportunity in partnership with Dupont Teijin Films.
  Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows
  Research Group: Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics
  Dr C Vanderwel
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Christina Vanderwel. Project description. There are two openings for PhD students to work on “Simulating urban air pollution in the lab”.
  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  Characterisation of flow around a bivalve (Pecten Maximus) shell
  Dr M Stewart, Prof V Nikora
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of studies have highlighted the ability of freshwater mussels to behave as so-called ecosystem engineers; actively modifying their local environment through mechanisms such as filtering and passively by modifying bed roughness.
  Development of a low cost hyperspectral imaging device for remote sensing of environmental flows
  Dr M Stewart, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hyperspectral imaging is widely used in industry and research but traditional commercial devices tend to suffer from high cost and low portability, as well as lacking information on the ultraviolet range of the spectrum or being unsuitable for underwater applications (Nevala and Baden, 2019).
  The effects of vegetation on wave hydrodynamics in coastal environments
  Prof T O'Donoghue, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabeds covered with vegetation such as seagrass protect against coastal erosion due to their ability to attenuate wave energy and demobilise suspended sediments.
  Secondary currents in rough-bed open-channel flows and their interrelations with the primary mean flow and turbulence
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although the great significance of secondary flows for river processes has long been recognised, their origin, mechanics, effects, and interrelations with the primary mean flow and turbulence are still under debate and continue attracting close attention of hydrologists, geomorphologists, engineers, and, recently, stream ecologists.
  The transport of alien particles under waves
  Prof T O'Donoghue, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While substantial fundamental research has been conducted in recent decades on sediment transport under waves (including research at the University of Aberdeen), little is known about the behaviour of alien particles dispersed within a sand bed mobilised by waves.
  Very large scale motions (VLSM) in rough-bed turbulent open-channel flows: topology, statistics, dynamics
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Turbulence in open-channel flows such as rivers and canals plays a key role in transport of momentum, sediments, nutrients, and other substances.
  Transport and fate of microplastics from rivers to the ocean
  Research Group: Water and Environmental Engineering
  Dr G A M de Almeida
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Gustavo de Almeida & Sergio Maldonado (WEEG). Project description. Since the 1950’s the world has witnessed the dramatic increase in production and widespread consumption of plastics.
  Understanding bedforms and their effect on the flow
  Research Group: Water and Environmental Engineering
  Dr S Maldonado-Villanueva
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Sergio Maldonado (WEEG). Project description. Sand ripples and dunes are ubiquitous features found in the beds of rivers and coastal waters.
  Biologically inspired underwater soft robotics
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Dr G Weymouth
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Gabriel Weymouth & Blair Thornton (Maritime Engineering). Project description. Animals glide effortlessly through amazing underwater acrobatics, while our best underwater vehicles fight against the water during the simplest accelerations and manoeuvres.
  Sparsification of reduced order models for fluid and fluid-structure problems
  Research Group: Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics
  Dr A Da Ronch
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Andrea Da Ronch. Project description. This is a unique opportunity for an enthusiastic and self-driven student to join a vibrant team with a well-proved expertise in multi-disciplinary computational aero-sciences driven by the technologies needed for next-generation aerospace systems.
  EPSRC DTP Studentship: Numerical study of complex fluid-structure interaction
  Dr Z Xie, Prof T N Phillips
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is a collaboration between the School of Engineering and School of Mathematics at Cardiff University. The academic supervisors are Dr.
  Developing a multiscale description of complex fluids from the molecular to the continuum scales
  Dr L Lue, Dr D Kivotides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Engineers have traditionally used continuum equations to model processes, such as the Navier-Stokes equation for fluid flow. These methods require constitutive relations that encode the properties of the fluid; these are typically determined empirically and have limited predictive capabilities.
