  Environmental assessment of offshore wind energy devices
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The installation of Offshore Wind Energy Device (OWED) will inevitably alter the flow patterns around the devices. This may enhance the sediment transport and scour around the foundation, thus leading to the instability of offshore wind energy device foundation, and further resultant failure of the whole system.
  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.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in The effect of non-neutral winds on wind power aerodynamics
  Dr M Placidi, Dr P Hancock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Renewable sources provided 29.3% of the electricity generated in the UK in 2017, with offshore wind turbines producing some 21% of that, and registering an increased capacity of 27% during the same year [1]; these trends are predicted to grow in line with 2030 and 2050 targets [2].
  Wind Turbine Operation and Maintenance in Extreme Conditions – How will Springing and Ringing Loads Have an Influence on O&M?
  Dr X Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. The mix of energy supply worldwide has changed dramatically in the last few decades. In the UK, in order to tackle climate change and increasing energy consumption, there has been a clear movement from fossil towards renewable and sustainable energy sources.
  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.
  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.
  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].
  Community Building Energy Modelling for Flexibility
  Dr B Howard, Mr B Young
Application Deadline: 22 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Application details. Reference number. ABCE19/R75a. Start date of studentship. 1 January 2020. Closing date of advert. 22 September 2019.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Protection of offshore wind turbines using low-cost, damage tolerant, sacrificial coatings (ProCoat) (NSIRC 179)
  Dr S Paul
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitigating corrosion of offshore structures requires the use of cathodic protection often in conjunction with dielectric coatings.
  Aerodynamics of Turbulent Flow over Rough, Porous and Compliant Surfaces
  Research Group: Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics
  Dr B Ganapathisubramani
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Majority of surfaces in engineering and environment are rough, porous and/or compliant. For example, ship hulls that have been fouled by bio-films or barnacles are either rough or compliant or both.
