  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.
  An integrated approach to improve hydraulic and hydrologic design of constructed wetlands
  Dr V Ioannidou
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subject description.
  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.
  Seeing through the ground - multi-sensor approach for detecting buried utilities
  Prof N Metje, Prof D N Chapman, Dr A Faramarzi
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well known that currently no technology exists which can locate a buried asset with confidence across all expected working scenarios.
  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.
  Sustainability, Water and Future Resource Security
  Prof C D F Rogers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Birmingham in collaboration with United Utilities presents a remarkable opportunity to 2 PhD students. we are offering two fully-funded PhD studentships (fees and stipend) to take a high level view of the water treatment and supply system, and wastewater removal and treatment system, respectively.
