  Future Railway Systems: Mechatronics and Autonomy for Railway Infrastructure
  Prof R Dixon, Dr E Stewart
Applications accepted all year round
Railway infrastructure systems (such as track switches and level crossings) rely upon mechanical technology which has changed very little over the last two centuries.
  Multi-scale materials for vibroacoustic reduction in railway built environments
  Dr S Kaewunruen
Applications accepted all year round
The University of Birmingham is host to the world-leading Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education, a multi-disciplinary group of staff from the Schools of Civil Engineering, Electronic, Electrical & Systems Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Materials & Metallurgy.
  Railway Electrification in the Era of Smart Grids
  Dr P Tricoli, Prof C Roberts
Applications accepted all year round
Electrification of the railway allows for faster, greener, more reliable train journeys, improves passenger services and supports economic growth in Britain.
  CDT-SIS-493: Investigating the geomechanics of railway ballast reinforced with micro-geogrids
  Research Group: Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (SIS)
  Dr M J Fernandes De Pinho Lopes, Prof W Powrie
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Railway transportation of both freight and people is key to reduce CO2 emissions significantly. There are several advantages of railway transportation; however, minimising track maintenance costs, and finding alternative materials and approaches to improve the performance of railway track is essential.
  CDT-SIS-492: Investigating the long-term response of geogrid-reinforced ballast under realistic loading conditions
  Research Group: Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (SIS)
  Dr M J Fernandes De Pinho Lopes, Prof W Powrie
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Railway transportation of both freight and people is key to reduce CO2 emissions significantly. There are several advantages of railway transportation; however, minimising track maintenance costs, and finding alternative materials and approaches to improve the performance of railway track is essential.
  Railway Track Bed Research: Estimating the Limiting Critical Velocity of a High Speed Train
  Prof M Forde, Dr A Giannopoulos
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The world-wide demand for construction of high-speed railways is growing. China leads the world followed by Japan. In the UK we are adding capacity to our railway network with the construction of High Speed Two – HS2.
