  The physics of flowing suspensions with viscoelastic continua
  Dr C Ness
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Suspensions of particles in liquid are found throughout nature and industry, for instance slurries and ceramics. We are just beginning to understand the dramatic influence that particle-particle interactions have on their flow behaviour when the liquid is Newtonian.
  Statistics of porous media attributes and mixing processes state variables across scales
  Dr M Mousavi-Nezhad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Typical observations of porous media attributes arise from a variety of techniques which have their own spatial resolution and associated uncertainty.
  Heterogeneous materials in extreme environments: multiscale models of chemo-mechanical processes
  Dr L Figiel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extreme volumetric expansion, high temperature gradients, and/or high-frequency vibrations can compromise structural integrity and safety of modern electronic systems (e.g.
  PhD Studentship on the use of artificial intelligence to design new materials for roads (Computational Engineering/Civil Engineering/Physics) (ENG1368)
  Prof A Garcia
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for the above post at the University of Nottingham, which will be working on a research project within the Faculty of Engineering.
  Mechanics of soft solids undergoing large deformation
  Dr P Saxena
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Solid materials that can undergo large deformations are ubiquitous in nature and are widely used to manufacture engineering components.
  Transport and fate of microplastics from rivers to the ocean
  Research Group: Water and Environmental Engineering
  Dr G A M de Almeida
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Gustavo de Almeida & Sergio Maldonado (WEEG). Project description. Since the 1950’s the world has witnessed the dramatic increase in production and widespread consumption of plastics.
  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.
  Predicting fracture risk in metastatic bone disease: A combined finite element modelling and machine learning approach
  Prof P Pankaj
Application Deadline: 18 December 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The femur (or thighbone) is a common site for the growth of tumours due to different types of cancers that originate elsewhere but spread to the bone.
  EPSRC DTP Studentship: Numerical study of complex fluid-structure interaction
  Dr Z Xie, Prof T N Phillips
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is a collaboration between the School of Engineering and School of Mathematics at Cardiff University. The academic supervisors are Dr.
  Development of a Lift-Based Wave Energy Converter
  Dr C Frost
Application Deadline: 15 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project involves the numerical and physical modelling of a novel wave energy converter that exploits wave-induced lift forces.
  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.
  Adaptive design of the UK dwellings to reduce summertime overheating
  Dr I Wong, Prof A Klemm, Dr D McCormick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-20-001-ILWSF. Background. The traditional UK dwellings are generally designed with small area of façade openings and building facades with lower U-values to reduce heat losses in winter.
  Size effects in pure and alloyed metals under dynamic loading
  Dr B. Gurrutxaga-Lerma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strength of metals and metallic alloys is usually thought to be independent of the system’s geometry and dimensions. However, at the micron scale this ceases to be true.
  Better discrete-element simulations through detailed finite-element contact modelling
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Discrete Element Method (DEM) is increasingly used in industry and academia, to simulate particulate materials. DEM models individual particles, and thus requires efficient yet realistic calculation of inter-particle forces through an appropriate contact law.
