  Induced fracture and fluid flow in tight oil reservoirs: viscosity and temperature effects
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Swift, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Adapting and testing the feasibility of an enhanced community-based rehabilitation programme following hip fracture for people with dementia or cognitive impairment
  Prof N Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Proximal femoral fracture (commonly referred to as hip fracture) is a major health problem in the frail elderly [1], and 42% have cognitive impairment [2].
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Development of methods to evaluate dynamic fracture toughness of metallic materials at very high loading rates under conditions of limited plastic deformation
  Dr Y Janin, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Many important industrial applications require that dynamic fracture toughness of materials is quantified and the accuracy of safety assessments depends on this material property.
  Why do bones break? The nanomechanics of osteoporotic bone fragility fracture
  Dr R Abel, Prof J Cobb
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

An opportunity has arisen for a 3-year PhD studentship within the Musculoskeletal Laboratory at Imperial College London. The studentship is funded by the Department of Surgery and Cancer at Imperial College London.
  PhD Studentship: Next-Generation Fracture Modelling
  Dr A Paluszny
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fractures transform Earth materials. They change their mechanical and flow properties and create intricate subsurface networks that enhance permeability at local and regional scales.
  Experimental and numerical characterisation and modelling of viscoelastic/viscoplastic crack growth in adhesive joints
  Dr G Alfano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesive bonding is a widely used technique in the aerospace and automotive industry, whose advantages with respect to more conventional connections of structural components include the great reduction of stress concentration and weight.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) – Crack Tip Constraint in Typical High Strength Steel Components in Arctic Conditions
  Dr R Kulka, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background.
  Bone-metal (brittle-elastic) bond durability and fatigue derived from coupled Acoustic Emission and X-ray Computed Tomography
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Tozzi, Prof G Blunn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.

  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Exploiting graphene and nanodiamond to enhance wear resistance of carbide-basedMaterials by Spark Plasma Sintering
  Dr V Garcia-Rocha, Prof SL Evans
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

(a) Scientific Excellence. Structural ceramics and their composites play an essential role in engineering. There is a need to find sustainable manufacturing processes to avoid climate change and at the same time ensure the performance and longevity of materials.
  An integrated approach for damage identification in composite materials
  Dr K Baxevanakis
Application Deadline: 24 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-destructive inspection based on acoustics is today one the primary methods for the identification of damage precursors in components and structures.
  The Effect Of Osteoporosis On Bone Cell Response To Strontium.
  Dr S Clarke, Dr F Buchanan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoporosis mainly affects older people and causes an increased risk of vertebral, hip and wrist fractures with every decade over 50 years of age leading to an incidence of nine million fragility fractures per year worldwide.
  Experimental and numerical investigation of methods to dynamically influence the permeability of fractured rock in the near field environment using thermal stress and fluid pressure.
  Dr C McDermott, Dr A Fraser Harris
Application Deadline: 5 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will form part of a larger industry sponsored project developing smart pumping technology capable of delivering controlled location specific fluid pulses to rock.
