PhD studentship: The impact of disinfectant residuals on biofilms within drinking water distribution system

This funded studentship provides a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of drinking water quality research, and make a significant contribution to the UKRI EPSRC funded project on drinking water distribution system (DWDS) biofilms ‘To chlorinate, or not to chlorinate’. Read more

The design of sustainable and effective debris flow barriers

Debris flows are fast landslides, occurring regularly in mountainous areas around the world. They consist of saturated debris and sediments mobilized by rainfall, and surging at high speed down slopes and natural channels. Read more

Powering nationwide water resource systems with low-carbon electricity

A reliable water supply and a successful energy transition are two necessary conditions for a sustainable future. Yet we know little about how the switch to intermittent renewables (wind, solar) for our energy supply will affect the operation of our water infrastructure. Read more

Fit to adapt - Extreme climate change compatible residential energy retrofit

The UK has enacted one of the most ambitious carbon reduction targets striving for net zero emissions by 2050. A major challenge to achieving this is decarbonizing heating demand with almost 25m homes in need of retrofit. Read more

Mixing in Engineered Water Systems – Relating Dispersion to Energy Loss

Taylor (1954) described the process of longitudinal dispersion in highly turbulent flow in a simple uniform pipe. To-date his analytical equilibrium approach remains the primary tool for modelling mixing in most 1D engineered water network models. Read more

3D-printable fibre-reinforced low-carbon concrete for additive construction

3D concrete printing (3DCP) can allow freeform construction without the use of expensive formwork, but the current progress is limited by the range of printable concretes and reinforcing methods. Read more

Development of low-cost ultra-high performance low-carbon concrete

According to the Portland Cement Association (PCA), ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) is ‘‘a high-strength, ductile material formulated by combining Portland cement, silica fume, quartz flour, fine silica sand, high range water reducer, water, and steel or organic fibres. Read more

Strain-hardening geopolymer composites for sustainable and durable construction

Fiber-reinforced strain-hardening cementitious composites (SHCC) are a unique class of fiber-reinforced concrete exhibiting a pseudo strain-hardening behavior in tension after first cracking, accompanied by multiple cracking up to relatively high strain levels. Read more
