  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.
  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).
  PhD studentship in Medical Imaging of Soil-Water Processes
  Dr R Stirling
Application Deadline: 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.
  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).
  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.
  Tracking granular flows using instrumented grains
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 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).
  Assessing the condition of roads and buried infrastructure using geophysical technologies
  Prof D N Chapman, Prof N Metje
Applications accepted all year round
With a growing urban population around the world, we are more than ever reliant on a healthy and functional infrastructure system.
  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.
  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.
