PhD studentship in Medical Imaging of Soil-Water Processes
Dr R Stirling
29 March 2019
Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2019 for 3.5 years. Overview. This PhD aims to improve our understanding of soil-water transport processes in hydrology and geotechnical engineering scenarios through the use of medical imaging techniques.
Tracking granular flows using instrumented grains
Dr S Papanicolopulos
30 June 2019
Granular materials are ubiquitous in nature (e.g. sand and other soils) and in industry (e.g. corn, sugar, detergents, pharmaceutical tablets, pellets).
Modelling Near Surface Variations for Gravity Surveys
Prof N Metje, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding what is buried in the ground and what is the condition of the ground (soft areas, low density) is vitally important to deliver safe and in budget construction projects, especially large projects such as HS2 and Crossrail and reduce the risk due to buried hazards such as mineshafts.
