  CFD of Flow and Temperature Control Using Porous Materials
  Dr Y Mahmoudi Larimi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of porous materials (i.e. solid medium permeated by a network of pores), in particular, for passive control of flow and thermal purposes has received considerable academic and industrial attention over the past five decades.
  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  Natural porous vibro-acoustic media
  Dr S Oberst
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Audio, Acoustics and Vibration (CAAV) was formed in 2017 and now has nine full time academic staff. The Centre is based at Tech Lab, which is a brand new research led facility that is close to the airport in Sydney.
  Solute transport and precipitation in porous media
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we will combine modelling and experimental approaches to extend our understanding of the processes controlling solute transport and precipitation in drying porous media.
  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…
  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.
  Designing new porous foam catalysts PhD/ MSc by Research
  Dr P Clough, Dr J Sumner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many chemical processes rely on catalysts to enhance reaction rates and their development from a Material Science and Chemistry standpoint is constantly improving, this PhD (or MSc by Research – MRes) will investigate developing porous catalytic foams using novel methods, with cheap precursors, via sustainable and resource efficient routes.
  Model of the Regenerative Heat Exchangers (Regenerators) for low temperature applications (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/PEREIRA)
  Dr C Costa Pereira, Dr S Gonzalez Sanchez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The demand for highly efficient, reliable, and affordable low temperature cooling systems without using sophisticated cascade compressors or expensive liquid nitrogen infrastructure, keeps increasing in various industrial sectors.
  Bioresorbable scaffolds for the repair and regeneration of natural bone
  Dr K Manda, Dr F Buchanan, Dr A Lennon
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

QUB – Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering PhD project 2019-2020.
  Hydrodynamics of Magnetic Responsive Foams
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiphase flow systems such as foams contribute considerably to the world economy and have a wide range of applications from food, medical and fire-fighting to environmental treatment, mineral processing and oil and gas industries.
  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.
  Nature-Inspired Low Friction Lubricated Surfaces
  Prof G McHale
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A large amount of the world’s disposable energy is lost through friction and drag. This project will create new types of liquid and liquid-like surfaces which remove liquid friction and drag.
  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.
