  Formulation of cost-effective chemicals from wastes to control unwanted gas leakage from petroleum reservoirs
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High gas-oil ratio is one of the main problems during late production stage of oil from petroleum reservoirs.
  Application of Nanotechnology in well plugging and abandonment of depleted oil fields
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When oil and gas wells do no longer produce enough hydrocarbons to remain economically viable, they become liability instead of asset.
  An assessment of the residual strength of corroded pipelines
  Dr A Akisanya, Dr Amir Siddiq
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The need to minimise the impact of corrosion of pipelines cannot be over emphasised as corrosion leads to reduction in collapse strength and burst pressure.
  Structural integrity of high strength submarine pipelines in deep water environment
  Dr A Akisanya, Dr Amir Siddiq
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The need to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has led to increased activities in CO2 capture and subsequent storage in depleted reservoirs or use for enhanced oil recovery.
  Advanced design of fibre reinforced composites - using multiscale reliability analysis and optimisation
  Dr P Dunning, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to advance the design of components made from fibre reinforced composite materials, by combining techniques in multiscale analysis, structural reliability and design optimisation.
  Optimal Design of fibre reinforced composite pipes
  Dr O Menshykov, Dr M Menshykova, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently, the application of composite materials in oil and gas industry lacks proven test methodologies and understanding of technical and fundamental issues relevant specifically to composite materials and structures.
  Numerical modelling of cracked engineering materials under dynamic loading
  Dr O Menshykov, Dr M Menshykova, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is common knowledge that all existing structural materials contain various inter- and intra-component cracks and crack-like defects which appear in materials during fabrication or in-service.
  Analysis of damage mechanisms in composite risers and umbilicals
  Dr M Menshykova, Dr O Menshykov, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

With increasing water depth, especially in excess of 1000 m, both platform designs and the design of the risers and umbilicals begin to become highly weight-sensitive.
  Finite Elements Techniques in 3D Dynamic Fracture Mechanics
  Dr M Menshykova, Dr O Menshykov, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

New high-tech materials allow a significant increase in strength, stiffness and safety level in structures. However, failure can still occur for many other reasons, including uncertainties in the loading or environmental conditions and deficiencies in construction.
  Optimizing the Mechanical Properties of 3D Printed Aluminium Alloys Using Multiscale Experimental and Computational Techniques
  Dr M Kartal, Dr Amir Siddiq
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is a novel method of making three dimensional (3D) components in layer by layer fashion.
  Computational modelling of deformation and failure in additively manufactured high strength alloys
  Dr Amir Siddiq, Dr M Kartal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conventional manufacturing processes involve high cost and lead times because of design and manufacturing of product specific tooling for new materials and parts.
  Modelling of joining technologies for novel metal matrix composites for offshore applications
  Prof I Guz, Prof M Kashtalyan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal matrix composites (MMCs) present remarkable properties by combining the properties of the metal matrix and of ceramic reinforcement.
  Predicting mechanical properties of nanocomposites with brush-like reinforcement
  Prof I Guz, Prof M Kashtalyan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will focus on creating the multi-scale three-dimensional models for accurate analytical prediction of the effect of reinforcement with bristled nanowires on the overall performance of the composite material, leading to the optimal usage of very expensive nanomaterials.
  Digital twin in micromachining through multiscale simulation
  Dr H Tan, Dr Amir Siddiq
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digital twin technology in manufacturing is the simulation technology that integrates multi-disciplinary, multi-physical quantity, multiscale and multi probability by making full use of the physical model, monitoring update, operation history and other data.
  Marine risers: experimental damage detection, monitoring and numerical modelling using digital twins
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr D Van der A, Prof E Pavlovskaia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine risers are critical components of any offshore oil and gas production operations linking subsea field developments with production and drilling equipment atop fixed or floating facilities.
