  Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network Network "SMARTINCS - Self-healing Multifunctional Advanced Repair Technologies in Cementitious Systems"

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network "SMARTINCS - Self-healing Multifunctional Advanced Repair Technologies in Cementitious Systems" funded by the European Commission (H2020) invites applications for multiple full-time Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions, with a duration of 36 months (M), starting at 1/06/2020.
  Thermoregulation and Ventilation in Termite Nests: Towards Bio-Inspired Solutions to Design Energy Efficient Buildings
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Dr K Singh
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Termite nests have long been investigated as effective examples for ventilation and thermoregulation. Their structure maintains a stable temperature throughout the year and permits self-sustainable CO2 exchange with the atmosphere without using any mechanical devices.
  Advanced design of fibre reinforced composites - using multiscale reliability analysis and optimisation
  Dr P Dunning, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to advance the design of components made from fibre reinforced composite materials, by combining techniques in multiscale analysis, structural reliability and design optimisation.
  Enhanced design and manufacture of cold-formed steel structures
  Dr A Bagheri Sabbagh, Dr P Dunning, Dr Amir Siddiq, Dr P C Davidson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lightweight cold-formed steel (CFS) structures made of thin-walled sections are gaining popularity as a sustainable, affordable construction form for low- and medium-rise commercial and residential buildings.
  Enhanced structural design for floating offshore wind turbines
  Dr A Bagheri Sabbagh, Dr A Maheri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wind turbines are one of the renewable sources of energy which is becoming a sustainable alternative way to produce energy, and which is growing fast all around the world.
  Enhancing the performance, condition, safety and reliability of offshore wind energy infrastructure systems using optimal design, inspections, structural health monitoring and structural control
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr P Dunning, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wind turbines are exposed to frequent structural damage increasing the cost of wind energy generation. To drive these costs down, this project will develop new automated methods for detection of structural damage to wind turbines by examining vibration responses measured by sensors attached to the structure.
  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  Integrated Aero/Hydro/Structural Analysis and Multi-objective Optimisation of Floating Wind Turbines
  Dr A Maheri, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Floating wind energy is potentially a highly scalable future energy source. Almost 80% of the Europe wind resources are in waters with +60 m depth, where floating offshore wind turbines are deemed to be the natural solutions.
  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.
