We have 16 timber PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

The Impact of Climate Change on Timber in Construction

Construction delivery and operation accounts for 34% global final energy use and 37% energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions whilst extracting finite resources and destroying natural habitats. Read more

Engineered Timber Solutions for Circularity

There is a global market shift towards sustainable construction methods and correspondingly increased demand for mass timber products and systems with an emphasis on cross-laminated and glue-laminated timber forms. Read more

Low carbon hybrid timber-steel structures in fire

The built environment is one of the largest producers of carbon emissions, responsible for around 38% of global emissions. Hybrid timber-steel structures utilise a traditional steel frame but use Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) for floor slabs which have the potential to reduce embodied carbon in the built environment. Read more

Fire performance and durability of integrated engineered timber products (Ref: ABCE24/SC2a)

Engineered timber products have greatly increased the scope of structural projects that can be realised in timber; however, revised building regulations post-Grenfell, based on perceived risks surrounding fire safety, further restricted the allowable scale of timber buildings, thus impeding efforts to decarbonise construction. Read more

Advances in Sustainable Structural Materials – An Experimental and Numerical Investigation to Assess the Structural Performance of Timber Concrete Composites

In an age where climate change is at the top of the agenda, engineers have been pushed to find novel techniques of constructing not only for a global population with exponential growth, but in such a manner to ensure sustainably throughout the whole construction process. Read more

Engineered Timber In Fire

Engineered timber construction is being pioneered as a key alternative to the environmentally unsustainable dependence of the construction industry on concrete and steel. Read more

Building Resilience: Investigating Progressive Collapse in Wooden Structures

Self funded project. 3 years start date October 1st 2024. Project Summary. The project aims to develop advanced computational models for simulating the progressive collapse behaviour of wooden structures under various loading scenarios. Read more

Environmental Impact of Construction on Peatlands

Reducing greenhouse gasses (GHG) emissions is one of the main goals of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement (signed in 2015 during COP21) which seeks to limit the global raise in temperature to 1.5 °C. Read more
