  Composite timber/FRP elements: studying the combination of laminated timber and FRP
  Dr D Petkova, Dr T Donchev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Existing research including pilot studies at Kingston University on solid timber and laminated timber (glulam) members strengthened with fibre reinforced polymers (FRPs) shows that there is a great potential for the future development of this field.
  Shape optimisation for aesthetics/functional requirements in the context of additive manufacturing
  Dr P Khazaeinejad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite significant advances in techniques of structural design in the past decades, there are still significant hurdles for achieving a harmonious balance between form and function.
  CNT/cement nanocomposite materials for structural applications for buildings
  Prof M Limbachiya, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with remarkable mechanical and electrical properties have been used for enhancement of mechanical properties of polymer matrix materials but its capability for enhancement of cement based materials has not been widely explored yet.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
  Improved understanding of the Vaiont landslide based on refined modelling using updated geological information
  Dr A P Dykes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Vaiont landslide occurred in 1963 in northern Italy and has perplexed researchers ever since. Recently, however, new geological information and interpretations have led to an entirely new framework for understanding the event.
  Load-Settlement Behaviour of Model Pile Groups Installed in Sand
  Dr J Omer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A series of laboratory tests will be carried out by fabricating instrumented small scale pile groups comprising 4 straight-shafted piles (vertical and raking at an angle) of different lengths and diameters.
  The application of Eurocode 8 Part1 around the world
  Prof C Georgopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eurocode 8 (EC8) is a state-of-the-art third generation code for seismic design. It includes well established concepts such as energy dissipation and new concepts such as displacement-based method.
  The use of recycled aggregate concrete of equal compressive strength in reinforced concrete structural elements.
  Dr H Kew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rate of infrastructural development in different parts of the world has increased the global demand for construction aggregates.
