  Investigating the impact of climate change on riverine flooding (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Applications accepted all year round
Riverine flooding evaluation typically includes a hydrologic analysis to estimate the flood peak discharge or hydrograph for a reference return period, and a hydraulic model to compute the corresponding water surface elevations and flooded areas.
  PhD and MPhil Degrees in the Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering
Our interdisciplinary approach to research, encompassing the fields of Architectural History and Theory, Architectural and Structural Conservation, Lightweight Structures, Hydraulics and Earthquake Engineering and Dynamics.
  Secondary currents in rough-bed open-channel flows and their effects on hydraulic resistance
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round
Secondary currents in open-channel flows such as rivers and canals play a key role in transport of momentum, sediments, nutrients, and other substances.
  Very large scale motions (VLSM) in rough-bed open-channel flows and their effects on hydraulic resistance
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round
Turbulence in open-channel flows such as rivers and canals plays a key role in transport of momentum, sediments, nutrients, and other substances.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round
There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
  Digital Hydraulic System Control - investigating novel digital switched hydraulic converters and their feasibility via analytical modelling and experimental validation.
  Dr M Pan
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
In most hydraulically powered systems, the speed and/or force of a load are controlled using valves to throttle the flow and thus reduce the hydraulic pressure.
  Hydrologic versus hydraulic predictors of ecological responses to changing flow regimes: an evaluation of traditional versus emerging methods
  Dr S Sharifi, Dr A Webb
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
The world’s rivers are undergoing unprecedented changes in their flow regimes. These changes can be negative impacts, such as those wrought through flow abstraction for irrigation, flow regime changes for hydropower or flood control, or long-term reductions in runoff caused by climate change (Dudgeon et al.
  Modelling Global Floods - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Prof P Bates, Dr J Neal
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Floods are the costliest and most deadly class of natural disaster, affecting 78.1 million people and causing $59Bn in damages in 2016 alone.
  Effect of Vegetation Patch on Compound Channel Flows
  Dr X Tang, Dr M Li
Applications accepted all year round
Many natural rivers and man-made channels have a compound cross-section, which comprises one deep main channel bounded with one or two shallow floodplains, where various vegetation exists.
