  The Effectiveness of Esters in Cooling and Lubricating Transmission Systems in Electric Vehicles-Dielectric Fluids
  Dr S Kosarieh, Prof A Neville
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Energy conservation and emissions reduction have become increasingly significant for automobiles due to high energy demand, fuel economy and environmental concerns.
  Nanomaterials for the Next Generation of Functional and Smart Fluids
  Dr D Zabek, Dr J Bartley, Prof G Min
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Functional-, or smart materials naturally respond to external forces by adapting their mechanical, electrical, thermal and magnetic properties to the environment.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Design, build and test of a fully-composite tank for cryogenic fluids
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Prof D Hudson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dominic Hudson. Project description. Many of the future low-Carbon fuels being considered for shipping involve liquids stored at cryogenic temperature, such as Ammonia or Hydrogen.
  Vortex Dynamics in Superfluids (SALMANHU20SF)
  Dr H Salman
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study of superfluidity is currently one of the most fascinating fields of research in fluid dynamics involving some of the most unusual phenomena seen in fluids.
  Micro-rheology of active matter
  Dr V Kantsler, Prof R C Ball
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project concerns microrheology of active matter - to study properties of biological microscopic constituents and its complex environment via optical microscopy and microfluidic methods.
  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.
  Thermally superconducting and superinsulating nanofluids and their use in nanodevices - (studied by Distance Learning)
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanotechnology is the forefront of a new industrial revolution. As the scale of new devices shrink, the design bottle-neck becomes getting rid of waste heat.
  The two-body problem in numerical and perturbative general relativity
  Research Group: Geometry and Analysis
  Dr C Markakis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London invite applications for a PhD project commencing in September 2020 for self-funded students.
  Coupled flow-geomechanics for prediction of propagation and collapse of wormholes in matrix acidizing
  Dr M Babaei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acidizing is an established technique to stimulate enhanced hydrocarbon recovery from carbonate reservoirs.
  Understanding fluid flow in fracture networks within the upper crust, experimental investigation, numerical modelling and environmental influence
  Dr C McDermott, Dr A Fraser Harris, Dr A Bond
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As we transition to a low carbon economy, alternative energy technologies need to be developed that either deliver alternative energy sources or facilitate other low carbon technologies.
  Control of turbulent flow in a square duct using a moving wall
  Dr DJC Dennis, Dr R Poole, Prof C A Lin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is part of a 4-year Dual PhD degree programme between the National Tsing Hua University (Taiwan) and the University of Liverpool (England).
