  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.
  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…
  Cost and efficiency focused optimisation of domestic waste water heat recovery application
  Research Group: Future Cities Research Network
  Dr A Ramezanpour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Future Cities Research Network - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/future-cities.
  Novel Smart Materials to Control Liquids (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MPEE/McHALE)
  Prof G McHale, Dr G Wells
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Materials properties are fundamental to how liquids interact with them to control physical processes from water repellency to icing.
  LNG sloshing and Leidenfrost droplet dynamics – modelling gas-cushioned liquid-solid impacts with phase change
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the walls of its containing tank and the impact of droplets with very hot surfaces are two examples of liquid-solid impacts in which the liquid may be close to thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding gas/vapour.
  Dynamics of complex fluids on Slippery Liquid Infused Substrates (SLIPS) (Advert Reference: FAC19/EE/MPEE/SEMPREBON)
  Dr C Semprebon, Dr G Wells
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When a liquid comes into contact with a solid surface, its interface can be pinned by surface texture, giving rise to the ubiquitous phenomenon of the contact angle hysteresis [1].
  Controlling Droplet Impact and Penetration
  Dr JRCP Castrejón-Pita
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this PhD project we aim to expand our understanding of the physics of liquid droplet impact on to structured surfaces (including fabrics).
  Droplet Adhesion on Liquid-Repellent Surfaces
  Dr N Gao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD student position funded at UK/EU rate is available to work on droplet wetting and adhesion behaviours in the group of Dr Nan Gao within the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Birmingham.
  Numerical modelling of sediment transportation and surface roughness on vegetated coastal dune systems
  Assoc Prof S Wakes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coasts and coastal communities around the world are vulnerable to sea level increases and intensity of storm events. Vegetated sand dunes are relied upon for protection, buffering coastal communities from the sea.
  SCENARIO - Developing an urban canopy model for improved weather forecasts in cities
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof J Barlow, Dr O Coceal, Dr M Carpentieri
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
