Corrosion of reinforcing steel embedded within low carbon cement concretes made without Portland cement

Corrosion of reinforcing steel in conventional Portland Cement (PC)-based concretes exposed in challenging environments is a common problem, leading to cracking and spalling and its repair is a big cost to the UK economy. Read more

Low-carbon building retrofit by adopting an integrated archetype and net-zero approach

Summary. This PhD opportunity emerges from the need to develop an archetype and low-carbon heating approach that delivers Scotland's net-zero targets considering the implications of the built heritage, the surrounding public and private space and the communities that depend on many of our existing built heritage.

Construction materials and products. Investigation about embodied carbon assessment methods and solutions

Buildings consume 40% of energy produced in the world. This percentage increases to over 60% in the UK. In European countries, existing regulations limit operational energy consumption/carbon emissions and have brought to considerable savings. Read more

Synthesis of Chemical Reaction Networks Prioritising Sustainability (ALBERT CDT)

What is ALBERT?. Doctoral Training in Autonomous Robotic Systems for Laboratory Experiments. A cohort of students will be part of a mini, pilot Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) focused on developing the science, engineering, and socio-technology that underpins building robots required for laboratory automation, e.g. Read more

Development of robotic printable long-life mortar system

Modern Methods of Construction has revolutionised the masonry based construction industry. Flat pack structural forms are manufactured in factory, transported to site and lifted in place, to finish medium to high rise buildings within weeks. Read more

Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (AAPS)

The AAPS CDT at the University of Bath is recruiting its fifth cohort starting in September 2023. AAPS integrates a one-year MRes with a three to four-year PhD which combine to give both comprehensive skills training and detailed knowledge in your chosen subject area. Read more

Model of Energy Demand and Carbon Reduction for Control of Energy Storage

The techniques of Control Theory, Artificial Intelligence and Statistical Data Analysis have been applied to engineering systems with great success, and the resulting is better energy efficiency using storage. Read more

Certification schemes – how to prove the origin of energy generation

As countries around the world consider ways to transition to low and zero carbon energy systems, there is increasing interest in ways in which the origin of energy generation can be tracked. Read more

Carbon Negative Polymers in Automotive Applications

  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
The Sustainable Materials Innovation Hub within the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester and housed in the Henry Royce Institute is seeking enthusiastic and collaborative polymer chemists or engineers to develop the next generation of sustainable polymers. Read more

Achieving Material Efficiency in Modern Floor Design based on Human Acceptability

Background. The production of construction materials is a significant source of carbon emissions, and the way of achieving low carbon in construction is to enhance material efficiency. Read more

Use of Fungi as a Means of Producing Concrete-Like Construction Materials

Concrete is one of the World’s most ubiquitous materials. It has achieved this through its versatility, durability and low cost. However, the manufacture of a key ingredient - Portland cement – contributes 4% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Read more
