  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.
  Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  Hydraulically fractured reservoirs and optimising EOR processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati, Dr M Manzari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydraulic fracturing is a method of producing hydrocarbons from shale reservoirs. Understanding the geomechanics of the reservoir is a key factor to predicting the fracture propagation and fluid flow in this type of rocks.
  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.
  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.
  Numerical modelling of wind-wave-current-sediment interaction
  Dr Z Xie, Dr S Pan
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main aim of the proposed project is to quantify the sediment transport and morphodynamics subjected to various ambient environments.
  Investigating the impact of climate change on riverine flooding (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Riverine flooding evaluation typically includes a hydrologic analysis to estimate the flood peak discharge or hydrograph for a reference return period, and a hydraulic model to compute the corresponding water surface elevations and flooded areas.
  Retreating Glaciers and Toxic Rivers: disentangling the history of water quality in the deglaciating Peruvian Andes - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J L Wadham, Dr C Williams
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Peru holds >70% of the world’s tropical glaciers, all of which have undergone high rates of mass loss in the last three decades due to changing climate.
  The changing nature of UK flooding - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr M Pregnolato, Prof T Wagener
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. In the last centuries, flooding has produced devastating societal and economic losses in the UK, as well as in other countries.
