  Concerning the properties and stability of resonant interfacial waves arising at the interface of two immiscible fluids under the actions of surface tension and gravity.
  Dr M Jones, Dr G Hunter, Dr M Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The evolution and stability of interfaces which arise between two fluids of finite vertical extent, caused by the interaction of two different harmonics of the fundamental, are very important for a number of applications, for example, stabilizing stratified oil and water in pipe flow, the creation of rogue waves and the understanding of the role of dissipation.
  Group Contribution methods for non-Newtonian fluids
  Dr C Avendano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded 3.5 year PhD studentship in the School of Chemical Engineering & Analytical Science, University of Manchester.
  Understanding structure-property relationships in non-Newtonian fluids
  Prof C Hardacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded 3.5 year PhD studentship to be conducted in the School of Chemical Engineering & Analytical Science in the University of Manchester and the UK’s neutron facility (ISIS) based in Oxfordshire.
  Dynamics of complex fluids on Slippery Liquid Infused Substrates (SLIPS) (Advert Reference: FAC19/EE/MPEE/SEMPREBON)
  Dr C Semprebon, Dr G Wells
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

When a liquid comes into contact with a solid surface, its interface can be pinned by surface texture, giving rise to the ubiquitous phenomenon of the contact angle hysteresis [1].
  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.
  Interaction between fluid flow and stress fields from seismicity
  Dr D Keir, Dr T Gernon
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The flow of high-pressure fluids in the Earth’s crust commonly causes rocks to fracture, thereby causing measurable small magnitude earthquakes (micro-seismicity) to occur.
  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.
  Micro-scale characterisation of non-Newtonian two-phase flow and transport through porous media
  Dr V Niasar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrodynamic dispersion in porous is due to the combined effects of advective transport and diffusion.
  Novel ways to model complex flows
  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
  Prof A Masters
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While the equations governing the flow of Newtonian liquids like water or petrol are well-understood and excellent numerical methods exist to make accurate predictions of how such liquids will behave, the situation regarding complex fluids, such as blood, paint, shampoos, etc, is considerably less well understood.
