  Railway stray current induced corrosion in reinforced concrete linings
  Dr K Tang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Railway electrification represents an important carbon strategy in the UK. It is estimated that an electric train consumes at least 20% less power (per passenger per mile) compared to a diesel-powered train.
  Risk Management of Railway/Highway Earth Retaining Structures (ENG1363)
  Dr A Grizi, Dr P Psimoulis
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retaining walls are important infrastructure assets that are generally overlooked compared to bridges and pavements in terms of asset management practices.
  Mitigation against stray current induced corrosion in reinforced concrete
  Dr K Tang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Railway stray current induced corrosion will become more prominent in the UK alongside the development of high-speed rails. This project will look into the provisions to mitigate railway stray current induced corrosion in reinforced concrete.
  The aerodynamics of freight trains
  Prof Mark Sterling, Dr D Soper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developments in the capabilities of rail freight, including increased freight speeds and larger, better connected rail networks, will enable greater competition between rail and road markets while having many environmental benefits.

  Three Dimensional Long Train System Dynamics
  Dr Q Wu, Prof C Cole, Prof M Spiryagin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project proposes to use vehicle system dynamics modelling, longitudinal train dynamics modelling and parallel computing to further develop and leverage the applications of three dimensional long train system dynamics simulations.
  Effect of Induced Plasticity on the Very High Cycle Fatigue of aluminium alloy under biaxial stress field
  Dr M Grasso, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most important task in the design process is the assessment of cyclic loading since half of the mechanical failures are due to fatigue.
  Psychology

Funding Type

PhD Type

Psychological research is led by Prof. Brendan Gough (Director of Research) and is conducted within the School of Social Sciences, mainly by staff working in Psychology and Speech & Language Science, but also by a few colleagues in Criminology.
  Exposing the nanoscale ultrafast dynamics of Dirac systems via near-field terahertz spectroscopy
  Dr J Boland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To create energy-efficient, faster ’21st century devices’ that can impact a range of sectors, including healthcare, wireless communication, defence, security and clean energy, integrated photonic, electronic and quantum technologies are essential.
