  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.
  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.
  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.
  Multi-objective Optimisation of Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems
  Dr A Maheri, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In planning and sizing of hybrid energy systems the conflicting objectives cost and performance are to be optimised simultaneously via a multi-objective optimisation process [1-2].
  Nonlinear topology optimisation of stiffened shell structures
  Dr P Dunning, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop topology optimisation methods for the design of stiffened shell structures, considering nonlinear affects.
  Reliability of pipelines under spatially varying corrosion defects
  Dr S Sriramula, Dr H Tan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The integrity of pipelines is greatly affected by the initiation and progression of corrosion defects. It has been widely recognised that random variations in these characteristics can be rationally quantified with probabilistic approaches.
  Stochastic response characterisation and reliability driven optimisation of floating wind turbines
  Dr S Sriramula, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the wind turbine installations move to deep-water environments, there is an increasing focus on the design considerations for floating wind turbines (FWTs).
  Advanced CFD methods for porous media flows (JS2UF2019)
  Dr J Szmelter, Dr A Clarke
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to work on the development of modelling techniques, based on existing novel high resolution, massively parallel schemes with the immersed boundaries approach employed for simulation of flows in porous media.
  An integrated approach for damage identification in composite materials (KB2UF2019)
  Dr K Baxevanakis, Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 30 November 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-destructive inspection based on acoustics is today one the primary methods for the identification of damage precursors in components and structures.
  Big data in energy
  Dr E Barbour
Application Deadline: 5 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With current energy systems generating ever-increasing amounts of data, there are new opportunities arising both in terms of economics and sustainability.
