Understanding the hydration of ferrite in Portland cement

To increase resource use efficiency in the UK cement industry, the formulation of Portland cement clinker will need to include a higher amount of ferrite minerals, but the fundamental understanding of hydration (reaction with water) of those minerals are still lacking. Read more

Developing novel iron-rich cement

The cement and steel sectors are foundational to the UK and are essential to construct our infrastructure. Cement is the most manufactured commodity worldwide and due to the large demand and urbanisation, the industry is extremely resource and carbon intensive. Read more

EPSRC Aura Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment

The EPSRC/NERC Aura Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment supports exceptional graduates into exciting research projects that aid the sustainable growth of the offshore wind industry. Read more

PhD in Alloy development for “blue hydrogen” steam reformer applications

  Research Group: Advanced Metallic Systems Centre for Doctoral Training
This project is based at the University of Sheffield and is sponsored by Paralloy, and seeks candidates with a 2.1 or 1st class degree in a STEM discipline. Read more

Learning from historical cement sample stores

The Cements@Sheffield group in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, University of Sheffield, is recruiting a PhD student to join us for a project funded by the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority. Read more

Understanding Cement-Superplasticiser Interactions in Blended Portland Cement Wasteforms

In the UK, over 150,000m3 of radioactive waste (enough to fill 60 Olympic size swimming pools) has been produced to date. Most of this radioactive waste needs conditioning, by either encapsulating it in cement, or another method, to prevent release to the biosphere. Read more

Understanding the Stability of Biologics Using Advanced Light Scattering Techniques

The biotherapeutics market was valued at approximately USD 325.17 billion in 2020. It is expected to witness a revenue of USD 496.71 billion in 2026, with a CAGR of 7.32% over the forecast period, 2021-2026. Read more

Engineering Virus-Like Particles (VLPS) for the Next-Generation Vaccines

Virus-like particles (VLPs) are molecules that mimic viruses and will trigger immune response when introduced into body. As they do not contain any viral genetic material, they are not infectious. Read more

Pervasive sensing for transport drainage management

Impaired railway drainage infrastructure can cause flooding, with inherent safety, environmental and financial impacts. Intelligent sensors and instrumentation offer the potential to effectively manage drainage assets and associated risks. Read more

Model-based autonomy for real-time monitoring of environmental pollutants

There is an emerging need for technologies that can rapidly map the location and concentration of pollutants within a range of environments, particularly in the aftermath of an environmental disaster. Read more

Developing Efficient Model Surrogates For Water Resources And Subsurface Contaminant Management

Numerical models are important tools for understanding the movement of fluids and the fate of contaminants in the subsurface. However, lack of data often limit our ability to construct models that are reliable for planning and management of groundwater resources. Read more
