  Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for subsea applications
  Dr T Thevar, Dr K Nakkeeran
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 - LEVERHULME
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

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.
  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.
  Mathematical simulation and optimisation of anaerobic digestion processes for the production of methane, hydrogen and chemicals - LEVERHULME
  Dr D Dionisi, Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion has a large potential for the production of renewable energy and renewable chemicals, however this potential is currently largely unexploited.
  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.
  New responsive electrolytes for energy conversion
  Dr A Martinez-Felipe, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fuel cells have high efficiency, generate low levels of emissions, and can consume renewable sources, in combination with energy vectors, making them excellent candidates as for alternative power production technologies.
  Optimisation of anaerobic digestion to produce chemicals and methane - LEVERHULME
  Dr D Dionisi, Dr C Fernandez-Martin
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion has a large potential for the production of renewable energy and renewable chemicals, however this potential is currently largely unexploited.
  Optimising Mechanical Performance of Additively Manufactured (3D Printed) Titanium Alloys
  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 common term used to describe the technology in which three-dimensional (3D) objects are fabricated by successive layers of material.
  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.
