  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.
  Development of novel sensors for measuring porewater pressures in soils (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/MENDES)
  Dr J Mendes, Dr M Lim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High capacity tensiometers (HCT) are sensors used in geotechnical engineering to monitor positive and negative porewater pressures (soil suction) up to 2MPa in soil infrastructures and for the study of unsaturated soils in the laboratory.
  Investigation of Tectonic Effects on Pipeline Stabilty
  Dr S Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pipelines make an important group of structures called lifelines, as they support conducting water, oil and gas essential for life.
