  Understanding and improving wind risk assessment for farm forests in Ireland
  Prof N Metje, Prof Mark Sterling
Application Deadline: 31 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Strong winds can result in tree uprooting (windthrow, the most common one) and/or breakage (windsnap) causing considerable damage and leading to major financial losses for forest owners.
  Methods of estimation of pedestrian flow suitable for low and middle income countries
  Dr H Evdorides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The safety of pedestrians is a critical area for improvement in international programmes. The pedestrian star ratings used by iRAP provide an initial benchmark of safety performance and priority improvements that are cost effective.
  Pedestrian risk of walking alongside roads versus risk of crossing roads
  Dr H Evdorides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The safety of pedestrians is a critical area for improvement in a number of international programmes. The pedestrian star ratings used by iRAP provide an initial benchmark of safety performance and priority improvements that are cost effective.
  Effective infrastructure measures to improve pedestrian safety at unsignalised crossings
  Dr H Evdorides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The safety of pedestrians is a critical area for improvement in international programmes. The pedestrian star ratings used by iRAP provide an initial benchmark of safety performance and priority improvements that are cost effective.
  The aerodynamics of freight trains
  Prof Mark Sterling, Dr D Soper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developments in the capabilities of rail freight, including increased freight speeds and larger, better connected rail networks, will enable greater competition between rail and road markets while having many environmental benefits.
  Modelling road development costs and benefits due to changes in agricultural and industrial outputs to support HDM4 analysis
  Dr H Evdorides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Road development cost and benefits due to changes in agricultural and industrial outputs are not directly included in HDM4.
  Adaptive optimisation of road transport infrastructure management
  Dr H Evdorides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A road transport system should aim to achieve a fair balance between safety, user satisfaction, condition, cost and the environment.
  Data mining techniques for road safety policy making
  Dr H Evdorides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Road safety is associated with target setting at policy making lever. Such targets are usually associated with statistical analysis of accident data.
  The climatology of thunderstorm downbursts
  Prof Mark Sterling, Prof G Kopp, Dr M Jesson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thunderstorm downbursts are relatively short-lived, extreme winds which can result in wind speeds matching those of medium-strength tornadoes.
  Size effects in pure and alloyed metals under dynamic loading
  Dr B. Gurrutxaga-Lerma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strength of metals and metallic alloys is usually thought to be independent of the system’s geometry and dimensions. However, at the micron scale this ceases to be true.
  Potential use of Recycled/Secondary Aggregates in Geotechnical Engineering
  Dr A Royal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The amount of primary aggregates, a finite and non-renewable resource, used annually in Europe is in the Gigatonne range, whilst more than a Gigatonne of wastes are landfilled each year.
  Numerical modelling of cement-bentonite barriers under various in situ loading, and hydrogeological, conditions
  Dr A Royal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hardened low permeability slurry walls are used to control groundwater/contamination plume flows in various engineering applications.
  Investigating the Interactions between Drilling Mud and Surrounding Soil in Horizontal Directional Drilling
  Dr A Royal, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Horizontal directional drilling is a technique that offers the ability to install pipes and cables without the need for open cut excavation.
  Use of polymer concrete as a lining material for small diameter tunnels installed using Microtunnelling Machines
  Dr A Royal, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trenchless technologies are used to install buried infrastructure without the need for open cut excavations. One such technique is microtunnelling; this uses microtunnelling machines to excavate the bore whilst the lining is traditionally installed via pipe jacking or auto-erecting segmental systems.
  Collapse investigation and retrofit of ageing infrastructure against hazardous events
  Dr K Skalomenos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our futuristic vision for Sustainable and Resilient Structures is one that has transparent expectations of structural performance against time, increased loads, environmental changes and natural disasters.
