  Investigating the impact of climate change on riverine flooding (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Riverine flooding evaluation typically includes a hydrologic analysis to estimate the flood peak discharge or hydrograph for a reference return period, and a hydraulic model to compute the corresponding water surface elevations and flooded areas.
  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.
  Reliable hydrological prediction under climate change
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change due to anthropogenic activity are causing amounts of effect on our planet. One of the major concerns are related to the changes of water resources in future.
  Initiatives for Sustainable Urban Development in China: Focusing on Flooding and Stormwater Management
  Dr C Jun
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

With cities getting bigger and climate change threatening to bring more extreme weather, the concept of “sponge cities” has been proposed in China, which is a reimagination of the urban environment where raindrop is captured, controlled and reused.
  Investigating the relationships between geotechnical and geophysical properties of the ground for assessing condition change of geotechnical assets
  Prof D N Chapman, Dr A Royal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geophysical surveys are becoming increasingly important in understanding the performance, and change in performance, of geotechnical assets (embankments, earth dams, etc.) over time.
