  Investigating the relationships between geotechnical and geophysical properties of the ground for assessing condition change of geotechnical assets
  Prof D N Chapman, Dr A Royal
Applications accepted all year round
Geophysical surveys are becoming increasingly important in understanding the performance, and change in performance, of geotechnical assets (embankments, earth dams, etc.) over time.
  Analytics to interpret acoustic emission generated by geotechnical infrastructure assets
  Dr A Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Proportions of the energy dissipated during deformation of particulate materials are converted to heat and sound. The high-frequency (>10kHz) component of this sound energy is called acoustic emission (AE).
  Geotechnical Properties of Glacial Tills: Engineering and Environmental Applications
  Dr D Hughes, Prof B Rea
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"The geotechnical properties of a substrate (e.g. grain-size, permeability, shear strength) determines how it responds to natural and anthropogenic processes.
  Earthwork Stability - Modelling and Simulation of geotechnical parameters
  Dr N Metje, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round
Transport networks act as the conduit for energy and urban systems as the pipes and cables are often placed below roads and alongside rail.
  Mechanical properties of ancient earth and turf materials
  Dr C Beckett, Dr B Russell
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
This project is a novel and exciting combination of engineering and archaeology and will focus on understanding the geotechnical performance of ancient earth and turf materials.
  Discrete element modelling for acoustic emission generation in granular media
  Dr A Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Proportions of the energy dissipated during deformation of particulate materials are converted to heat and sound. The high-frequency (>10kHz) component of this sound energy is called acoustic emission (AE).
  Modelling high-speed railway-induced vibrations around tunnels (ground-support)
  Dr C Paraskevopoulou, Dr D Connolly, Dr P Woodward, Dr M Hildyard
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
OVERVIEW. This project will be of interest to someone looking for a multidisciplinary project involving fieldwork, laboratory analysis and numerical modelling in the broad areas of tunnelling, geotechnical and geological engineering.

  Development of Ultra High Capacity Tensiometers (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/MCE/MENDES)
  Prof J Mendes
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The proposed research aims to develop Ultra High Capacity Tensiometers (UHCT) that can measure soil suctions in the range of 7-10MPa with the intent of overcoming existing limitations with high capacity tensiometers (HCT).
  Dynamic response and resilient design of deep water Offshore Wind Turbines
  Dr L Pelecanos, Dr A Darby
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Modern day society needs require energy savings and decarbonisation of the built environment. Alternative and renewable energy sources are becoming more attractive and new ways for energy harvesting are explored.
