Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  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
