  Data-driven Upscaling for Flow in Fractured Porous Media
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Dr A ElSheikh, Dr F Doster
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Simulation of multiphase flow in fractured porous media is a challenging task given the inherent uncertainties in the porous media properties, fractures geometry and fractures properties.
  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flows
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  Effective models for function-structure relationship in complex biological media
  Dr I Chernyaysky, Prof O Jensen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A complex multiscale relationship between the structure and function is common in many human organs (such as the lung, liver and placenta), and many diseases are associated with an imbalance in the relationship.
  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  CFD of Flow and Temperature Control Using Porous Materials
  Dr Y Mahmoudi Larimi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of porous materials (i.e. solid medium permeated by a network of pores), in particular, for passive control of flow and thermal purposes has received considerable academic and industrial attention over the past five decades.
  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  Thermoregulation and Ventilation in Termite Nests: Towards Bio-Inspired Solutions to Design Energy Efficient Buildings
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Dr K Singh
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Termite nests have long been investigated as effective examples for ventilation and thermoregulation. Their structure maintains a stable temperature throughout the year and permits self-sustainable CO2 exchange with the atmosphere without using any mechanical devices.
  Integrable turbulence and statistical mechanics of nonlinear dispersive waves (Advert Reference: RDF20/EE/MPEE/EL)
  Prof G El
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Turbulence is one of the most recognizable, and at the same time, one of the most intriguing forms of nonlinear motion that is commonly observed in everyday phenomena such as wind blasts or fast flowing rivers.
  Pulsed fluid pumping for remediation of leakage from geological storage
  Dr J Roberts, Dr G Johnson
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geological energy (geoenergy) options such as CO2, hydrogen or compressed air energy storage and hydrogen or natural gas extraction are deemed fundamental to achieving the necessary transition to a low carbon future.
