  Multiscale characterisation of the hydromechanical behaviour of hydrophobic sandy soils
  Dr C Beckett
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well understood that microscopic interactions between water menisci and soil particles govern the macroscopic mechanical behaviour of unsaturated soils.
  Research Studentship in Behaviour Of Perforated Stainless Steel Plated Structures
  Prof B Rossi, Prof Z You
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

3.5-year D.Phil. studentship. Project. Behaviour Of Perforated Stainless Steel Plated Structures. Stainless steel has mechanical characteristics (in terms of strength and ductility) reasonably similar to traditional carbon steel equivalents.
  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.
  Structural behaviour of fibrous plaster ceilings and their response to degradation
  Dr R Ball, Prof P Walker
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from UK/EU candidates only. Supervisory team. Dr Richard Ball, Prof Pete Walker & Dr Martin Ansell. For further information and informal enquiries, please contact Dr Richard Ball, [email protected]
  Numerical and experimental investigations of compressive behaviour of FRP-confined waste-containing concrete columns
  Dr G Gong, Dr J Xia, Dr L Di Sarno
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prosperous construction industry causes enormous carbon-dioxide emission and demolished building wastes which have significant negative environmental impacts.
  Behaviour of high strength steel structures in fire
  Dr K Cashell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High strength steel is an increasingly popular material choice for civil engineering structures owing to its high performance and ability to reduce the overall material usage in a project.
  Behaviour of stainless steel reinforced concrete structures in fire
  Dr K Cashell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Premature deterioration and failure of concrete buildings and infrastructure due to corrosion of the reinforcement is a severe challenge facing the structural engineering community from a technical perspective and the wider public from a convenience and economic point of view.
  Fish Swimming Dynamics and Behaviour in the Vicinity of a Fish Exclusion Screen
  Dr C A M E Wilson
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will examine the effectiveness of different fish exclusion screens, to enable fish to safely remain in the main river system and allow safe passage.
  NSIRC 175 PhD Studentship – Prediction of fatigue limit of additive manufactured materials
  Dr M Dore, Dr Y Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In fatigue design, it is important to know the fatigue limit of the material to be used in order to avoid fatigue failure.
  Compartment fire-fighting and fire dynamics - Fire Service Research and Training Trust Scholarship
  Dr R Carvel, Dr R Hadden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fire Service Research and Training Trust Scholarship. Fire adapts to its environment. When a fire becomes established in a compartment within a building or structure, the fire behaviour depends upon the nature of the fuel, the airflow dynamics in the space and the heat exchange between the fire and its environment.
  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.
  PhD vacancy (3 years) on experimental testing of thermoplastic automotive composites
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thermoplastic composites are gaining more and more interest in automotive, aerospace and sports applications, because of the short cycle times and recycling possibilities.
  Mathematical modelling of poro-mechanics of soil
  Research Group: Bioengineering
  Prof T. Roose
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Tiina Roose. Co-supervisor William Powrie. Project description. Soil is one of the most complex and important self-assembling organo-mineral composites in the world.
  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.
  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.
