  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.
  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.
  In-situ Geotechnical Sensing - Development of new sensing methods and/or sensors to monitor water content and water pressure
  Prof D N Chapman, Dr N Metje, Dr E Stewart
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.
  Weathering of volcanic products in the tropical environment of the Panama Canal area
  Dr D Buchs, Dr P Renforth
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Weathering of volcanic products in the tropical climate is key to the formation of soils that constitute a critical zone between the lithosphere and biosphere, are associated with significant geotechnical challenges and could possibly play a significant role in the global carbon budget.
  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.
  Ground (soil) modification caused by degrading (corroding) buried metallic utilities (pipes)
  Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round
Iron (cast iron, ductile iron and steel) and other metallic products have historically been used frequently to make pipes for distribution of water and petroleum products globally, often buried in the ground which is chemically reactive and likely to induce degradation of the pipe / pipeline with time.
  Study of Soil Behavior under Principal Stress Rotationsate by Supervisor
  Dr Y Yang
Applications accepted all year round
The principal stress rotation (PSR) occurs in many geotechnical engineering applications. The PSR can lead to additional plastic deformations in soil.
