  Nonlinear mechanics of soft solids undergoing large deformation
  Dr P Saxena
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Solid materials that can undergo large deformations are ubiquitous in nature and are widely used to manufacture engineering components.
  SCENARIO - Enhancing forecasting flood inundation mapping through data assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof S L Dance, Dr D Mason
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding is major risk for lives and livelihoods around the world. In Europe alone, the annual cost due to flood damage is expected to rise to 100 billion EUR by the year 2080, due to a combination of climate change and socio-economic growth.
  Numerical modelling of non-Newtonian rising bubbles
  Dr Z Xie, Prof T N Phillips, Dr S Pan
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The student will join in the Hydro-environmental Research Centre (HRC) at the Cardiff School of Engineering.
  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.
  Multi-scale modelling of bone fracture (SLUF2019)
  Dr S Li, Prof V Silberschmidt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone fracture affects millions of people’s life worldwide. In UK alone, there are approximately more than 850,000 new fractures each year, and the estimated annual cost for bone fracture related treatment reached more than £2 billion.
  Research Studentship in Unsteady Fluid Dynamics of Tidal Stream Turbines
  Prof R Wilden, Dr C Vogel, Dr T Nishino
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Studentship in Unsteady Fluid Dynamics of Tidal Stream Turbines. 4-year DPhil (PhD) studentship starting October 2020. Supervisors.
  Refining our Understanding of Small-scale Turbulence Dynamics
  Prof c keylock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Improved modelling methods for fluid flows require a better understanding of how turbulent, Newtonian fluids such as water or air dissipate energy.
  Cellular Automaton to Model Rapid Crystal Growth and Recrystallisation
  Dr A Roy, Dr K Baxevanakis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Texture in materials plays a crucial role in metallic products. A thorough study of the underlying morphology and its evolution is relevant for producing cast parts of innovative technological products.
  Smart Sensor Network Based on Nonlinearly Coupled Systems (AHUF2019)
  Dr A Hajjaj, Dr S Theodossiades
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The implementation of electro-mechanical systems in sensing application; mass/gas detection, pressure measurements, and charge sensing; have experienced rapid growth and demonstrated great potential in wide range of applications, such as medical and healthcare, food and agriculture safety, and environmental monitoring.
  Efficient discrete-element modelling of flexible elongated particles
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Particulate materials are ubiquitous in nature and in industry (e.g. sand, sugar, corn, ore pellets) and are fundamental to many industrial fields (e.g.
