We have 15 steam PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Biocoal research for use in heritage steam railways

The UK has over 200 heritage railway lines in operation. Traditionally these have run on coal, preferably Welsh steam coal, a form of bituminous coal known for its good calorific values, low sulphur content and semi smokeless properties. Read more

Water lubricated compressor bearings

Supervisory Team:  Robert Wood, Julian Wharton and Ahmed Kovacevic (City, Uni of London). Project description. Compressors consume energy, but their use in mechanical vapour recompression (MVR) and heat pumps will continue to play an important role that contributes towards Carbon Neutrality in society.

Sustainable bio-hydrogen production via engineered microbial metabolism (4-year fully funded PhD studentship with Dstl)

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Background and the project. In 2022, carbon emissions from the chemical industry peaked at 935 M ton, making this industry the third largest sector by emissions and responsible for 2.5% of total greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Read more

Material degradation study of energy storage materials for renewable technologies PhD

This is a self-funded PhD position to work with Dr Adnan Syed in the Surface Engineering and Precision Centre. The PhD project will focus studying high temperature corrosion mechanisms in details to identify the material degradation details in extreme environments. Read more

Sustainable Carbon Nanomaterials for Electrochemical Energy Conversion in Hydrogen Fuel Cells

The Hydrogen Economy will help to shift society away from fossil fuels and contribute to decarbonisation. Electrochemical processes are at the heart of the hydrogen economy providing a means to convert renewable energy into green hydrogen via electrolysis or converting hydrogen into electrical power using fuel cells. Read more

Projects in mathematical systems and control theory

Mathematical systems and control theory “represents an attempt to codify, in mathematical terms, the principles and techniques used in the analysis and design of control systems” [1]. Read more

Behaviour of Granular Materials

Granular materials such as sand, snow, rice, ores, powders and soils are prevalent in nature and industry. Understanding the way they deform, fail, flow and mix is key to predict events such as landslides, erosion, earthquakes and snow avalanches. Read more

Combined Cycle Gas Turbine – CCS; experiment and modelling

This project will combine an experimental and modelling study of a combined cycle gas turbine with CCS. A Turbec T100 gas turbine will be modified to allow the investigation of the effect of exhaust gas recycle and or steam injection on its performance, with measurement of power output and exhaust gas emissions. Read more

Fluidised Bed Biomass combustion

To achieve the UK’s ambitious target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050 without compromising energy security, the UK’s conventional power plants must be operated in a flexible manner in terms of high efficiency, using alternative fuels (e.g. Read more
