  A Multi-Sensory Approach To Buried Asset Detection
  Prof N Metje, Prof D N Chapman, Dr A Faramarzi
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
It is well known that currently no technology exists which can locate a buried asset with confidence across all expected working scenarios.
  Assessing the condition of roads and buried infrastructure using geophysical technologies
  Prof D N Chapman, Prof N Metje
Applications accepted all year round
With a growing urban population around the world, we are more than ever reliant on a healthy and functional infrastructure system.
  Future Railway Systems: Mechatronics and Autonomy for Railway Infrastructure
  Prof R Dixon, Dr E Stewart
Applications accepted all year round
Railway infrastructure systems (such as track switches and level crossings) rely upon mechanical technology which has changed very little over the last two centuries.
  Ground (soil) modification caused by degrading (corroding) buried metallic utilities (pipes)
  Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round
Iron (cast iron, ductile iron and steel) and other metallic products have historically been used frequently to make pipes for distribution of water and petroleum products globally, often buried in the ground which is chemically reactive and likely to induce degradation of the pipe / pipeline with time.
  Investigating the relationships between geotechnical and geophysical properties of the ground for assessing condition change of geotechnical assets
  Prof D N Chapman, Dr A Royal
Applications accepted all year round
Geophysical surveys are becoming increasingly important in understanding the performance, and change in performance, of geotechnical assets (embankments, earth dams, etc.) over time.
  Multi-hazard risk and uncertainty quantification for rail infrastructure systems
  Dr S Kaewunruen
Applications accepted all year round
The University of Birmingham, as part of a multi-university multi-disciplinary rail research team, has recently been The University of Birmingham is host…
  Numerical modelling of soil/structure interactions related to shallow urban environments
  Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round
Assessing the condition of shallow buried urban infrastructure is challenging, e.g. buried pipes. However it is often the ground that supports this infrastructure that is key to its long-term performance.
  Robust Digital Control and Autonomy in Railways
  Prof R Dixon, Prof C Roberts
Applications accepted all year round
In 2018, most safety critical railway systems still rely upon open-loop control to perform their day-to-day operations and functions.
  Smart Monitoring and Prediction of Generator and Drive Motor Temperature
  Prof R Dixon, Dr S Hilmansen
Applications accepted all year round
Overheating of electrical machines leads to rapid failure. Hence, the main limitation on electrical generators and drive is a temperature limit, which is generally enforced with an electrical fuse (current limit).
  Soil/Structure Interaction in Subsurface Infrastructure
  Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round
The urban environment in particular is an ever changing and challenging environment, with new subsurface infrastructure interacting with the existing.
