  Efficient discrete-element modelling of flexible elongated particles
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Particulate materials are ubiquitous in nature and in industry (e.g. sand, sugar, corn, ore pellets) and are fundamental to many industrial fields (e.g.
  Chaos and fractals in fluid motion
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Grebogi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advection of particles and fields by fluid flows is a problem of great interest for both fundamental physics and engineering applications.
  Investigation of Tectonic Effects on Pipeline Stabilty
  Dr S Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pipelines make an important group of structures called lifelines, as they support conducting water, oil and gas essential for life.
  Bistatic UHF Synthetic Aperture Radar Phenomenology
  Dr M Antoniou, Prof M Cherniakov
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is funded by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) of the UK with the research conducted at the University of Birmingham, UK.
  The physics of flowing suspensions with viscoelastic continua
  Dr C Ness
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Suspensions of particles in liquid are found throughout nature and industry, for instance slurries and ceramics. We are just beginning to understand the dramatic influence that particle-particle interactions have on their flow behaviour when the liquid is Newtonian.
  Foam improved oil recovery
  Dr P Grassia, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Typically in oil and gas production, only a small fraction of the oil present manages to flow out of an oil reservoir under the reservoir’s own pressure.
  Numerical simulation of water repellent soils
  Prof P Cleall, Prof A D Jefferson
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

3 Years October 2020. This industrially supported project will focus on representing the processes related to, and assessing the impact of, hydrophobicity on soil behaviour via the development of novel models and their solution utilising established numerical techniques.
  Exploring the Sun’s Plasma Environment with the Parker Solar Probe Spacecraft
  Dr C Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sun’s atmosphere, the solar corona, remains one of the last major areas of the solar system to be directly explored by a spacecraft, but over the next few years this will change with the NASA Parker Solar Probe (PSP) mission.
  Elasticity of geological and planetary materials using novel X-ray imaging
  Dr A Thomson, Prof J Brodholt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The structure and composition of the Earth’s deep interior cannot be directly measured, but instead must be inferred from seismic velocity data generated by Earthquakes.
  Better discrete-element simulations through detailed finite-element contact modelling
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Discrete Element Method (DEM) is increasingly used in industry and academia, to simulate particulate materials. DEM models individual particles, and thus requires efficient yet realistic calculation of inter-particle forces through an appropriate contact law.
