  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flow
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round
Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  Hybrid pore-scale modelling of two-phase flow in porous media
  Dr V Niasar
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding two-phase flow dynamics in porous media is essential for many applications including petroleum engineering, hydrogeology, contaminant transport in groundwater, and chemical engineering industry.
  Fast Algorithms for Cluster Dynamics in Multi-phase Flow Pore-networks
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Dr R van Dijke
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Recent 3D micro-CT visualisations of two-phase flow in porous media have revealed and confirmed pore-scale displacement mechanisms, such as trapped ganglion movement, as well as sudden interface advance (Haines jumps) and retraction (Berg et al., 2013; Reynolds et al., 2017.).
  Lattice-Boltzmann studies on the effect of the morphological properties of porous media in immiscible displacements
  Dr K Papadikis, Dr S Shaw, Dr M Li
Applications accepted all year round
The understanding of immiscible two-phase flows in porous media is of critical importance in numerous industrial operations such as, enhanced oil recovery, geologic CO2 sequestration, groundwater supply and remediation, catalytic processing in fixed bed reactors etc.
  DEFTPORE: “Deformation Control on Flow and Transport in Soft Porous Media with a focus on miscible flows, including solute transport, dispersion, and miscible viscous fingering”
  Prof C MacMinn
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This studentship is part of the major ERC Starting Grant project DEFTPORE. “Deformation Control on Flow and Transport in Soft Porous Media”, being undertaken by the University of Oxford under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
  DEFTPORE: “Deformation Control on Flow and Transport in Soft Porous Media with a focus on two-phase flows, including capillary phenomena, residual trapping, and immiscible viscous fingering”
  Prof C MacMinn
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This studentship is part of the major ERC Starting Grant project DEFTPORE. “Deformation Control on Flow and Transport in Soft Porous Media”, being undertaken by the University of Oxford under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
  Micro-scale characterisation of non-Newtonian two-phase flow and transport through porous media
  Dr V Niasar
Applications accepted all year round
Hydrodynamic dispersion in porous is due to the combined effects of advective transport and diffusion.
  Fluid flows through porous obstacles
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round
Environmental and industrial fluid mechanics problems often involve flows through porous obstacles. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, offshore structures, buildings exposed to flooding and arrays of turbines in tidal channels.
  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round
Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  Discrete Multiphysics modelling of self-healing infrastructure materials
  Dr A Alexiadis
Applications accepted all year round
The Objective. Develop a complete virtual environment, based on a computational approach known as Discrete Multiphysics, that can be applied to assess the behaviour and durability of infrastructure materials such as concrete, asphalt, or masonry and enable the design of a new class of self-healing materials.
