  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.
  Hydraulically fractured reservoirs and optimising EOR processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati, Dr M Manzari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydraulic fracturing is a method of producing hydrocarbons from shale reservoirs. Understanding the geomechanics of the reservoir is a key factor to predicting the fracture propagation and fluid flow in this type of rocks.
  PhD studentship opportunity - Development of efficient aerosolization devices for formulated high viscosity inhalation products
  Prof D Murnane, Dr L Urbano
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University invites applications to join our Hertfordshire Knowledge Exchange Partnership (HKEP) scheme, a 1-year industrial placement followed by a 3-year PhD studentship funded jointly by the European Regional Development Fund, Hertfordshire LEP and Merxin ltd.
  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  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.
  Application of Nanotechnology in Drilling Engineering
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Production from unconventional hydrocarbon resources, such as shale gas, shale oil, deepwater and arctic reservoirs requires advanced drilling and extraction technologies.
  PhD Studentship: 4-year PhD studentship: Multi-physics Simulation in the Automotive Industry
  Dr G Mavros, Dr J Knowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014) and an outstanding 66% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff who were eligible to be submitted to the REF was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, compared to a national average figure of 43%.
  Modelling of cleaning and decontamination problems on porous and absorbent substrates
  Dr J Landel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cleaning and decontamination processes of surfaces can rely on different mechanisms to remove an unwanted patch of substance attached to a substrate.
  Development of a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) model to simulate transitions of gas-liquid two-phase flow regimes
  Prof B Rogers, Dr S Lind, Prof P K Stansby
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For reactors in critical situations, ’Loss of Coolant’ incidents require ensuring that the core and fuel rod claddings are properly cooled when water injection is triggered by safety monitoring systems.
