  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).
  Mechanical properties of ancient earth and turf materials
  Dr C Beckett, Dr B Russell
Application Deadline: 1 June 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).
  Geophysical assessment of Lime/Clay grout injection of estuary and reservoir embankments subject to badgers burrows erosion
  Dr P Sentenac
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019
According to studies, 46 % of dams and embankments failures are due to severe internal erosion (Foster et al., 2000). Animal burrowing can lead to a preferential path for the water flow and seepage through the flood embankments that could lead to a partial or total collapse of the structure.
  Mechanics of lightweight inter-array cables for offshore renewable installations
  Prof C Augarde, Dr W Coombs
Applications accepted all year round
Fully-Funded Doctoral Studentship in Offshore Wind Energy related to Geotechnical Engineering. Supervisors. Prof. Charles Augarde and Dr Will Coombs.
  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.
  PhD project: Automation of seismic processing with machine learning
  Prof G Fabien-Ouellet
Applications accepted all year round
Seismic imaging is a powerful technology used by geologists and engineers to image soils and rocs.
  Numerical modelling of dynamic soil-structure interaction
  Dr L Pelecanos
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Dynamic soil-structure interaction (SSI) governs the transient response of many critical civil infrastructure and needs to be appropriately modelled when designing such structures.
