  River Soar Natural Flood Management: Bringing together local scale impacts and catchment scale strategies
  Dr I Pattison
Application Deadline: 22 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding, and management, cost the UK £2.2billion per year. Under current economic pressures, flood policy is shifting from entirely flood defenses to broader management strategies.
  Multiscale characterisation of the hydromechanical behaviour of hydrophobic sandy soils
  Dr C Beckett
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

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.
  Compartment fire-fighting and fire dynamics - Fire Service Research and Training Trust Scholarship
  Dr R Carvel, Dr R Hadden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fire Service Research and Training Trust Scholarship. Fire adapts to its environment. When a fire becomes established in a compartment within a building or structure, the fire behaviour depends upon the nature of the fuel, the airflow dynamics in the space and the heat exchange between the fire and its environment.
  Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) in Construction
  Dr F Bosche, Dr S Smith
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Modern visualisation technologies like Virtual Reality (VR) / Augmented Reality (AR) / Mixed Reality (MR), along with Building Information Modelling (BIM), AI and Robotics are collectively revolutionising the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry.
  New numerical integration approaches for finite element simulations
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 21 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerical integration of area and volume integrals (also known as cubature) is a fundamental, but often overlooked, component of many computational techniques in continuum mechanics.
  Tracking granular flows using instrumented grains
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 21 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Granular materials are ubiquitous in nature (e.g. sand and other soils) and in industry (e.g. corn, sugar, detergents, pharmaceutical tablets, pellets).
  Digital Education in STEM: automated evaluation of students interacting with remote laboratories
  Prof T Drysdale
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Remote laboratories comprise experimental apparatus that can be observed and controlled in real time, from a remote location. When used in undergraduate education, remote laboratories allow more active learning to be included in a course than would otherwise be possible.
  EPSRC 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.
