  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.
  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.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  The point-of-no-return for the Amazon? New insights from high-resolution atmosphere simulations
  Dr P Hopcroft, Dr M Widmann, Dr T Pugh
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Amazon basin contains the world’s largest rainforest. Dubbed the ‘lungs of the Earth’, this biome sequesters vast amounts of carbon dioxide and hosts countless species of flora and fauna.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
  Bayesian Network Approaches for Vulnerability Assessment and Management of Diffuse Groundwater Pollution
  Dr M Troldborg, Dr I Pohle, Dr Z Zhang, Dr J C Comte
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Groundwater (GW) is an important source of drinking water in many countries and plays a vital role in the natural water cycle, providing the baseflow of surface water ecosystems.
  Status of Malawi’s Water and Land Resources: to aid policy and donor decisions (SMaWaL)
  Dr K MacLeod, Dr M Troldborg, Prof R Kalin
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. This research aims to improve National Government and donor decision making about water and land management in Malawi. Malawi’s economy is dependent on its water and land resources, with agriculture directly accounting about 30% to GDP (MEM 2019, 7).
  Water for the Future: Investigating the Effects of Future Land Use and Climate Change on Water Quality in Scotland
  Dr M Glendell, Dr S Halliday, Dr A Gimona
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Water pollution remains the main reason for the failure of many Scottish waterbodies to reach Good Ecological Status under the Water Framework Directive.
