  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.
  Application of non-thermal plasma-assisted heterogeneous catalysis for the upgrading of methane
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, plasma-catalysis has emerged as a promising technology to improve the performance of existing catalytic processes.
  Biomass-derived oils catalytic cracking in existing refinery processes
  Dr I Graca, Dr A McCue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The partial replacement of crude oil by renewable sources to produce high quality transportation fuels is a timely and interesting topic.
  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.
  Conversion of waste plastics to useful chemicals, fuel and energy - LEVERHULME
  Dr W Afzal, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The remarkable properties of plastics make them the most commonly used modern materials since early twentieth century. Every year several hundreds of millions of tons of plastics are produced globally.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Green conversion of (mixed) waste into porous carbon materials with application in gas treatment by adsorption
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will face the global challenge of reducing landfilling by revalorising wastes of different nature and composition (i.e.
  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.
  Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for subsea applications
  Dr T Thevar, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is a widely used technique to obtain the elemental constituents of a sample. The process uses a short pulse of focused laser light to evaporate a minute volume of a target substance by highly localized heating to temperatures greater than 5000 K.
  LNG sloshing and Leidenfrost droplet dynamics – modelling gas-cushioned liquid-solid impacts with phase change
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the walls of its containing tank and the impact of droplets with very hot surfaces are two examples of liquid-solid impacts in which the liquid may be close to thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding gas/vapour.
  Low temperature steam reforming of methane for hydrogen production
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr A McCue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogen, a primary raw material of the chemical industry, presents significant potential as an energy carrier that can drive the implementation of highly efficient energy systems at a reduced environmental impact.
  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flows
  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.
