  Pore scale investigation of geophysical properties in unsaturated porous medium
  Dr Y Zhou
Application Deadline: 5 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pore scale modelling method has been used extensively in evaluation of single phase petrophysical properties (e.g.
  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.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  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.
  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.
  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
