  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.
  Catalyst attrition during fluid catalytic cracking processes
  Dr K Hanley
Application Deadline: 15 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) is a process which converts heavy fractions of petroleum oil to lighter products which are in greater demand.
  Intertwining the Tangible and Intangible Aspects of Historic Building Information Modelling (HBIM) SEBE0025
  Dr S Jaradat, Prof J Currie
Application Deadline: 3 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. We currently live in data-rich societies where we constantly collect various forms of data in both systematic and unsystematic ways.
  Global potential for bamboo in construction: a dynamic flow analysis and impact assessment coordinating long-term production and consumption SEBE0034
  Dr FP Pomponi, Dr BD D'amico, Dr J Zhang
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many countries have committed to net-zero carbon targets in the coming decades, and the world as a whole must embark on an unprecedented carbon reduction journey to address the current climate crises and keep global warming below 1.5 degrees C.
  Bamboo-Timber Composite Materials for Tall Buildings and Long Span Structures SEBE0033
  Dr J Zhang, Dr BD D'amico, Dr FP Pomponi
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK and several other EU countries are the leading countries on developing advanced sustainable construction materials such as timber and engineered wood products.
  Data-mining the Built Environment SEBE0032
  Dr BD D'amico, Dr FP Pomponi
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Given the current forecasts in global population to reach 9.7 billion by 2050 [1], a huge increase in construction activities is expected to follow on the same trend.
  Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) SEBE0030
  Dr S Jaradat, Dr AS Smith
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Building Information Modelling (BIM) was introduced to the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry in the early years of 2000s.
  Vibrational Performance of timber floor – an Investigation of influence of construction parameters SEBE0026
  Dr A Khokhar, Dr R Hairstans
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traditional timber floor systems are usually composed of a series of parallel timber joists (eg. solid and engineered I-joist or Laminated-Veneer-Lumber) which support wood-based sheathing.
  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.
  Fire Behaviour of Self-Prestressed Concrete Slabs Reinforced with Carbon Fibre Rein- forced Polymer Tendons
  Dr L Bisby
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Novel precast concrete elements have been developed utilizing high-strength, self- consolidating concrete (fire resistant or expanding SCC) in which prestress is introduced by high-strength and modulus, lightweight, and non-corroding carbon fibre reinforced polymer tendons (UHM CFRP tendons).
  Multiscale characterisation of the hydromechanical behaviour of hydrophobic sandy soils
  Dr C Beckett
Application Deadline: 30 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well understood that microscopic interactions between water menisci and soil particles govern the macroscopic mechanical behaviour of unsaturated soils.
  EPSRC and NERC InDustrial CDT for Offshore Renewable Energy (IDCORE)

Funding Type

PhD Type

A jointly awarded Doctorate in Engineering from the University of Edinburgh, Exeter University and Strathclyde University, offering ten places per year funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
  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.
  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.
