  Numerical modelling of wind-wave-current-sediment interaction
  Dr Z Xie, Dr S Pan
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main aim of the proposed project is to quantify the sediment transport and morphodynamics subjected to various ambient environments.
  Flow characteristics and sediment transport in vegetated compound channels
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is to examine the effect of vegetations on the open channel/river flow and sediment transport. It is well known that plants can reduce flow velocity, and thus sediment transport by creating additional flow resistance, leading to the increase of the river flooding.
  Impact of Sediment Transport and Vegetation to the Reservoir Hydrodynamics within Fluvial Environment
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof F Hu, Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reservoirs and dams are popular control mechanisms for different water resources around the world. However, lately, there have been increasing incidences of reservoir failure linked to sediment transport and vegetation within its environment, that have caused massive financial and social impacts.
  Environmental assessment of offshore wind energy devices
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The installation of Offshore Wind Energy Device (OWED) will inevitably alter the flow patterns around the devices. This may enhance the sediment transport and scour around the foundation, thus leading to the instability of offshore wind energy device foundation, and further resultant failure of the whole system.
  Water Engineering: Complex Natural River Flow Modelling and Flood Analysis
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study on flooding, and identifying suitable ways to mitigate floods, have become a top priority for Government and the Environmental Agency, due to increasing flood frequency and intensity around the UK.
  Water Engineering: Complex Natural River Flow Modelling and Flood Analysis
  Dr P Pimenidou, Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study on flooding, and identifying suitable ways to mitigate floods, have become a top priority for Government and the Environmental Agency, due to increasing flood frequency and intensity around the UK.
  Effect of atmospheric stability on aeolian transport
  Dr B Li, Dr J Cooper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric stability is the air vertical movement tendency controlled by atmospheric stratification, which can usually be measured using a series of Richardson numbers.
