  Computational fluid dynamics modelling of sprays of liquids into gases and vapours
  Prof H Iacovides, Dr A Cioncolini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project addresses the kinematic and thermal behaviour of sprays of liquids into gases, with a particular focus on the dynamics of the type of pressurisers used to control the operating pressure in pressurised water nuclear power stations.
  Development of novel coolant chemistry for use in dynamic reactor systems
  Dr F Scenini, Dr M Curioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The performance of nuclear power plants, including pressurised water reactors (PWRs), can be affected by the formation of corrosion deposit.
  Exploring the processes of nucleation and growth in the oxidation of zirconium alloy fuel rods
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr C Race
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pellets of uranium oxide fissile fuel in pressurised water reactors are contained within tubes of zirconium alloy - the fuel clad.
  Modelling of primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC) of nickel based alloys (NBAs) in nuclear (PWR) primary coolant
  Prof M C Smith, Dr A Jivkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nickel based alloy (NBA) materials and their associated weld metals are of interest to new build and advanced nuclear reactors due to their superior structural performance when compared with traditional steel materials.
  Online electromagnetic sensing technique for welding inspection
  Prof A Peyton, Dr WY Yin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Welding is one of the most commonly practiced fabrication techniques within manufacturing today.
  Potential role of digital twins in seeking consensus for GDF siting
  Prof R Taylor, Prof EA Patterson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new consent-based process for siting a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) was launched by the UK government in December 2018. Proposals for the implementation of this process are captured in a revised ‘Working with Communities’ framework published as part of the launch.
  Soil microbiome function controlling radionuclide bioavailability and soil-to-plant transfer
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the behaviour and environmental impacts of radionuclides such as radium (Ra) and uranium (U) is of critical importance for the management and risk modelling of sites with elevated concentrations of these radionuclides.
  Viability of novel processing routes to current and advanced nuclear materials
  Prof T Abram, Dr R Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nuclear power accounts for 20% of UK energy production, making it a critical energy source for the development of society and economy.
