  Potential use of Recycled/Secondary Aggregates in Geotechnical Engineering
  Dr A Royal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The amount of primary aggregates, a finite and non-renewable resource, used annually in Europe is in the Gigatonne range, whilst more than a Gigatonne of wastes are landfilled each year.
  Analytics to interpret acoustic emission generated by geotechnical infrastructure assets
  Dr A Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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).
  Discrete element modelling for acoustic emission generation in granular media
  Dr A Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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).
  Induced fracture and fluid flow in tight oil reservoirs: viscosity and temperature effects
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Swift, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Civil Engineering: Fully Funded EPSRC CASE PhD: Numerical modelling of concrete rheology in deep foundation construction
  Prof C Li
Application Deadline: 24 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This scholarship is funded by the EPSRC and ARUP Ltd. Start date. January 2020. Project description. Over the past decade, the rapid development of concrete admixtures and their increasing use in ready mix concrete has fundamentally changed the design of tremie concrete.
  Multiscale characterisation of the hydromechanical behaviour of hydrophobic sandy soils
  Dr C Beckett
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well understood that microscopic interactions between water menisci and soil particles govern the macroscopic mechanical behaviour of unsaturated soils.
  Tracking granular flows using instrumented grains
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 21 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Granular materials are ubiquitous in nature (e.g. sand and other soils) and in industry (e.g. corn, sugar, detergents, pharmaceutical tablets, pellets).
  Modelling soil dewatering and recharge for cost-effective and climate resilient infrastructure
  Research Group: Bioengineering
  Prof T. Roose
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Tiina Roose. Co-supervisor William Powrie. Project description. Soil is one of the most complex and important self-assembling organo-mineral composites in the world.
  Geophysical properties of seafloor hydrate reservoirs
  Dr A Best, Dr S Sahoo, Dr L North, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Globally, seafloor gas hydrates offer a strategic source of natural gas that may be equivalent in size to all known conventional gas reserves.
  Formation of Hydraulic and Chemical Ground Barriers to Inhibit Contaminant Migration on Radioactively Contaminated Sites
  Prof R Lunn, Dr M Pedrotti
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. This 4-year PhD at the University of Strathclyde will explore the use of colloidal silica hydrogel as a barrier to migration of radioactive contaminants in soils during decommissioning operations on nuclear facilities.
