  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.

  Dr J Mendes
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The build-up of capillary pressures in the pore space in early age concrete can be responsible for the formation of cracks throughout a concrete element that can be ultimately responsible for the failure of a structure.
