  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  Solute transport and precipitation in porous media
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we will combine modelling and experimental approaches to extend our understanding of the processes controlling solute transport and precipitation in drying porous media.
  Computational design of hierarchical porous materials
  Dr M Jorge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Materials that are porous at the nanoscale are used in a wide variety of applications, like gas separation, carbon capture, catalysis and drug delivery.
  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  Pore scale investigation of geophysical properties in unsaturated porous medium
  Dr Y Zhou
Application Deadline: 5 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pore scale modelling method has been used extensively in evaluation of single phase petrophysical properties (e.g.
  Micro-scale characterisation of non-Newtonian two-phase flow and transport through porous media
  Dr V Niasar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrodynamic dispersion in porous is due to the combined effects of advective transport and diffusion.
  Understanding the electromechanical switching behaviour of porous ferroelectric ceramics
  Dr J Roscow
Application Deadline: 25 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Informal queries should be directed to Dr James Roscow ([email protected]). Introducing carefully structured porosity into ferroelectric ceramics is an effective way of achieving a favourable balance of piezoelectric and dielectric properties for sensing and energy harvesting applications.
  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flows
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  Designing new porous foam catalysts PhD/ MSc by Research
  Dr P Clough, Dr J Sumner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many chemical processes rely on catalysts to enhance reaction rates and their development from a Material Science and Chemistry standpoint is constantly improving, this PhD (or MSc by Research – MRes) will investigate developing porous catalytic foams using novel methods, with cheap precursors, via sustainable and resource efficient routes.
  Foam Flow in Porous Media: From Fundamentals to Applications
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During oil production from underground oil reservoirs, only a fraction of oil tends to be extracted during the primary recovery phase, prior to the oil reservoir becoming too depleted to push additional oil out naturally.
