  Shape optimisation for aesthetics/functional requirements in the context of additive manufacturingShape optimisation for aesthetics/functional requirements in the context of additive manufacturing
  Dr P Khazaeinejad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite significant advances in techniques of structural design in the past decades, there are still significant hurdles for achieving a harmonious balance between form and function.
  Experimental study into the performance of vertical axis wind turbines
  Dr N Cagney
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The majority of wind turbines currently in operation use a horizontal axis configuration (in which the axis of rotation points in the wind direction); however, vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) have many potential benefits over conventional designs, including cheaper installation and maintenance and improved performance in regions where the direction and strength of wind is variable.
  PhD studentship in Resilient and Sustainable Infrastructure Systems Design and Analysis
  Dr M-A Cardin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an opening for a fully funded PhD studentship in Resilient and Sustainable Infrastructure Systems Design and Analysis at the Dyson School of Design Engineering (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/design-engineering/), Imperial College London (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/).
  CNT/cement nanocomposite materials for structural applications for buildings
  Prof M Limbachiya, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with remarkable mechanical and electrical properties have been used for enhancement of mechanical properties of polymer matrix materials but its capability for enhancement of cement based materials has not been widely explored yet.
  Composite timber/FRP elements: studying the combination of laminated timber and FRP
  Dr D Petkova, Dr T Donchev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Existing research including pilot studies at Kingston University on solid timber and laminated timber (glulam) members strengthened with fibre reinforced polymers (FRPs) shows that there is a great potential for the future development of this field.
  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.
  Improved understanding of the Vaiont landslide based on refined modelling using updated geological information
  Dr A P Dykes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Vaiont landslide occurred in 1963 in northern Italy and has perplexed researchers ever since. Recently, however, new geological information and interpretations have led to an entirely new framework for understanding the event.
  Load-Settlement Behaviour of Model Pile Groups Installed in Sand
  Dr J Omer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A series of laboratory tests will be carried out by fabricating instrumented small scale pile groups comprising 4 straight-shafted piles (vertical and raking at an angle) of different lengths and diameters.
  The application of Eurocode 8 Part1 around the world
  Prof C Georgopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eurocode 8 (EC8) is a state-of-the-art third generation code for seismic design. It includes well established concepts such as energy dissipation and new concepts such as displacement-based method.
  Risk analysis based on extreme regression
  Prof K Yu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extremes may give rise to bigger severity of occurrences than ordinary risks and then turn notably complex. Management of extreme events often faces challenges in the practice of problem solving and decision making, and therefore, requires of a special consideration and sufficiently using information provided.
