  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flows - (studied by distance learning)
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  Turbulence dynamics under breaking waves
  Dr D Van der A, Prof T O'Donoghue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The hydrodynamics and turbulence dynamics of wave breaking are important in the context of breaking wave forces on offshore and coastal structures, as well in the context of coastal sand transport in shallow water because of the impact of breaking on the near-bed turbulence and bed shear stresses, and on sediment entrainment, suspension and advection.
  Effects of flexible vegetation on oscillatory flow hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics
  Dr D Van der A, Prof T O'Donoghue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coastal vegetation such as seagrass protects against coastal erosion by attenuating wave energy and demobilising suspended sediments.
  Thermally superconducting and superinsulating nanofluids and their use in nanodevices - (studied by Distance Learning)
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanotechnology is the forefront of a new industrial revolution. As the scale of new devices shrink, the design bottle-neck becomes getting rid of waste heat.
  Continuous separation of conglomerate forming enantiomers using crystallization process
  Dr A Majumder, Dr D Dionisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enantiomers are the results of chirality or handedness of molecules which are the non-superimposable mirror images of each other.
  Efficient simulation of the effect of mixing and flow condition on product crystal qualities in a continuous crystallizer using coupled CFD-PBE approach
  Dr A Majumder, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The majority of the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) used in the pharmaceutical industries are crystals of organic molecules.
  Chaos and fractals in fluid motion
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Grebogi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advection of particles and fields by fluid flows is a problem of great interest for both fundamental physics and engineering applications.
  Pore-scale modelling of drug transport in brain tumour tissue
  Dr W Zhan, Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Zhou
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Malignant glioma is characterised as aggressive and invasive in clinic owing to its high mortality rate.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  Hydrodynamics of Magnetic Responsive Foams
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiphase flow systems such as foams contribute considerably to the world economy and have a wide range of applications from food, medical and fire-fighting to environmental treatment, mineral processing and oil and gas industries.
  Application of Nanotechnology in Drilling Engineering
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Production from unconventional hydrocarbon resources, such as shale gas, shale oil, deepwater and arctic reservoirs requires advanced drilling and extraction technologies.
  Durability analysis in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles
  Dr M Aleyaasin, Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project , the heavy duty hybrid electric vehicles is considered for the investigation. The propulsion in these trucks is based on parallel operation of a bank of lithium batteries and series of hydrogen fuel cells.
  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
  Hydraulically fractured reservoirs and optimising EOR processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati, Dr M Manzari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydraulic fracturing is a method of producing hydrocarbons from shale reservoirs. Understanding the geomechanics of the reservoir is a key factor to predicting the fracture propagation and fluid flow in this type of rocks.
