  Why are some trees more sensitive to climate than others?
  Dr R Brienen, Prof E Gloor, Dr D Galbraith
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Why are some trees more sensitive to climate than others? A study on the functional linkage of tree hydraulics and their sensitivity to climate.
  Dam impact and management in an era of change: the case of the TAMS Hydropower Project in Ethiopia (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The TAMS hydropower project is a proposed multipurpose project located in the Baro River basin in Southwestern Ethiopia. The project area is at the junction zone between the lowering, thickly wooded highlands of the Baro River basin and the alluvial, fertile plains of the lower Baro River.
  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.
  Modelling movement of large sediment in river flows
  Prof J Hooke, Dr J Cooper
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Motivation and wider context. In high magnitude flood events very large particles, including boulders and large pieces of masonry can be carried, especially in ephemerally-flowing channels of dry climates.
  CDT-SIS-511: Gauging river flows sustainably
  Research Group: Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (SIS)
  Dr G A M de Almeida
Application Deadline: 15 December 2018
Weirs are widely used hydraulic structures that provide accurate and robust means of measuring water flows in streams and canals.
  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.
