  CDT-SIS-493: Investigating the geomechanics of railway ballast reinforced with micro-geogrids
  Research Group: Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (SIS)
  Dr M J Fernandes De Pinho Lopes, Prof W Powrie
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Railway transportation of both freight and people is key to reduce CO2 emissions significantly. There are several advantages of railway transportation; however, minimising track maintenance costs, and finding alternative materials and approaches to improve the performance of railway track is essential.
  The effects of minor intrusions on host rock properties: Testing alternative models for heat transfer from magma to host
  Dr R Walker, Dr A Miles
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Magmatic intrusion into porous sediments can result in localised host rock diagenetic effects (e.g., compaction of pore space, grain cataclasis, pore infilling, redistribution of cements), which can have significant impact on subsurface fluid flow.
  Fracture permeability response to the gas adsorption/desorption process in organic rocks by coupled Hydro–Mechanical modelling
  Dr G Quan, Dr K Wu
Applications accepted all year round
Gas adsorption/desorption is an essential process related to gas transport in fractured organic rocks, such as coals and organic-rich shales.
  What can hydrocarbon fingerprints tell us about fracking in organic-rich shales?
  Prof P S Monks, Prof S Davies
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The accurate estimation of the hydrocarbon content of potential source rocks is increasingly important as unconventional sources of hydrocarbons become economically viable and we look manage of our environment responsibly as we try to meet our energy needs.
